We were challenged with a difficult task of creating a world that felt like it was taken out of the DC Suicide Squad universe, while at the same time not utilizing SS branded assets.
Lots of Detail
A robost world was built down to the doornobs in detail. Nearly nine million polygons were used as well as thousands of texture maps. Over 20 times the detail of any previous IMAX countdown.
In the Numbers
On top of utilizing the most diverse color palette a IMAX countdown had seen, we fully modified fonts and numbers to family in with the Suicide Squad marketing campaign.
Continuing a Legacy
It was an honor getting the opportunity to continue passing the torch on an IP for IMAX that was so iconic when it was first released.
Before this countdown, the previous IMAX countdowns were absent of a background environment.
With the design of the previous countdowns looking more machined, we wanted ours to look a little more soft and approachable.
This is the one that got away. As a Star Wars fan, I was very excited to work on the countdown for the reboot of the franchise. Below was our quick concepts for what the countdown could have been had the project been awarded.
