INDEPENDENCE DAY RESURGENCE
I had the great opportunity to do quite a bit of designs for IDR, under the guidance of the talented Production Designer Barry Chusid and Director Rolland Emmerich.
It's VERY important to mention how pivotal the work done by the Previz and Layout Department was. A lot of the environments I created was a continuation of the great base they provided. Also is important to mention the outstanding work done by the VFX teams involved into making all the designs and the director's vision come to life!
Probably my favorite work in the whole project. I got to design fun NASA inspired environments and the after receiving the great base from the Previz Team I developed the look of from the outside of the base as well as most of inside areas, which the base were provided by the Set Designers:
BASE- INTERIOR DESIGN
Using the Set Designer geometry as a starting point in many areas, I had to develop the design further and develop the overall language and details:
I also had the opportunity to design the Interior of the Shuttle Bay, which stored the military Aircraft and its respective Air Lock
EARTH- PRISON BLOCK
The first design I worked on the show was the Alien Prison Block that kept all the individual Alien Cells and the Mechanical Arm that handle them. I did a quick block out which ended up driving the final design seen in the movie:
EARTH- AREA 51
Using the great bases provided by the Previz Dept. I did a further detail development of the Area 51 Exterior:
I helped develop the look of the Benevolent Alien Ship that looms over the Moon Base and the "Canoe Device" which contained the AI featured in the film. I did many versions of the AI Sphere, the Mother Ship and the talented Steve Burg got to a successful Spherical shape which I continued the development. The final design of the Mother Ship seeing in the movie was a result of a great team effort and the talented VFX team:
ALIEN SHIP- CRASH SITE
The Mother Ship gets destroyed and crashes on the Moon. I did a few Illustrations showing the overall look of the site starting from an earlier design up to the Final Spherical Mother Ship Design.
I did this shot for a marketing product and it was also featured in the Art of book. The Alien Ship Design and model was done by the super talented Johannes Mücke and Wideshot. The goal was to do a shot that could showcase the scale of the invasion when the mother ship landed:
