Being involved in the early stages of this project, I had the chance to experiment a lot.
The "analog feeling" was very important to the directors so I used stop-motion and rough textures, at different scales.
Some were used in the movie, but most helped inspire and define the style of the film.
Here are some experiments with different plastic sheets to create the surface of a sea.
Some tests for the sea at night.
Here are different tests made for the desert made in paper, in chronological order, until we reached the final look.
And an overview of the set we built.
