Storyboard/ Moodboard

 

Sam Neill (Jurassic Park, Event Horizon) takes on the role of a revolutionary scientist turned cult leader in this pulse-pounding metaphysical sci-fi thriller by Andrew Goth (Gallowwalkers). Andrew asked us to help him communicate his vision using rough lines, comic-style noir tones, and a hint of futuristic technology.

VFX DESIGN

 

Director Nico Grein’s idea for a Ferrari shortfilm caught the attention of vfx artists at nhb studios duesseldorf ready to make it happen. Art director Ronan-Wolf Chuat went through an array of concepts to define the initial exfoliation effect. The final result reads as a surreal drift of sandstorm and silhouettes, fire and force.

LEatherface

Leatherface was directed by French Writer-Directors Alexandre Boustillon and Julien Maury (Inside, Livid). Without having the seen the movie prior to being commissioned, I thought I’d take the opportunity to think back about my childhood days in France where I used to read a lot of graphic novels and watching Japanese cartoons while drawing a lot. So this one became about line work and fierce blacks near popping reds as we see a dark destiny unfolding -- JB

This title will be released on December 19, 2017.

Pre-order now.


Death Machine

We were thrilled when Turbine Classics asked us to design a movie poster for Stephen Norrington’s (Blade) feature film debut Death Machine (1994) for its first time ever Blu-Ray release. The final Artwork marries traditional graphite drawing with digital painting reminiscent of late 70’s and 80’s movie posters that I inhaled growing up – JB


Johnny Mnemonic

Several sketches preceded the final silhouetted side view of Keanu Reeve’s pre-Matrix portrayal of Johnny Mnemonic (1995) in the dystopian sci-fi actioner based on William Gibson’s short story about mental data trading. The hero who’s eyes are obstructed by the VR Headset is blind for the world and reduced to the equivalent of a raw data drive. Meanwhile the universe inside his head is actively exploding and putting the hero back into researching his own humanity -- RW


Existenz

Re-watching David Cronenberg’s signature sci-fi film several times in search of its essence was mandatory before sketching. We wanted something that would hopefully stand on its own feet, like the film does, and that would fuse its themes of love, belief and subsequent transformation. A somewhat classic religious scene that happens in the back of a rundown highway gas station -- JB/RW.
