A look back at the UI design of Oblivion
We love the vast array of art direction that goes into a film like Oblivion. Especially the User Interface Design (UI) by GMUNK. Projected onto selected surfaces in real time so that the stunning lighting design could interact with it. Hawaiian mountain cloudscapes were projected around the set creating a never before seen effect. Better than CGI – Real.
Oblivion takes place in 2077, on an Earth devastated by war with extraterrestrials that has caused humanity to relocate itself to Titan. The film follows the story of Jack Harper, a technician who has been sent back to Earth to service drones used in the fight against remaining extraterrestrials (scavengers).
“Piper” tells the story of a hungry sandpiper hatchling who ventures from her nest for the first time to dig for food by the shoreline. The only problem is, the food is buried beneath the sand where scary waves roll up onto the shore.
If you missed this charming animated short played before the theatrical releases of Finding Dory (2016), here’s your chance. Not only is it an adorable story, but the style of digital character rendering is truly remarkable. To tell you the truth, (although I have nothing against fish adventures) this is the story that stayed with me.
