I'm not a big fan of movies especially sci-fi but the work behind the scenes always fascinated me. Apart of the rumours that there is a crowdfunding campaign to return Matt Damon from Mars, the movie itself is captivating and first of all with its smart use of interface. After discovering GMUNK's work over "Tron" interfaces at OFFF festival few years ago, the way we see UI in movies raised the bar (sorry not to mention the Shell in Matrix).Here is the new, absolutely stunning and definitely painstaking work done by Territory Studio for "The Martian" movie. Working closely with NASA, Territory developed a series of deft and elegant concepts that combine factual integrity and filmic narrative, yet are forward looking and pushing NASA’s current UI conventions as much as possible.
In all Territory delivered around 400 screens for on-set playback, most of them featuring interactive elements. With 85 screens on the NASA Mission Control set alone, a number of which were 6mx18m wall screens, there are many moments in which the graphics become a dynamic bridge between Earth and Mars, narrative and action, audience and characters.
