A model I built a few years ago. Just finished watching “Top Gun: Maverick” with my kids and was reminded how fun it was working on Ghost Protocol. The model was used not only used for previz and shot planning, but also a to-scale reference for Construction, Set Dec and Viz Effects
Dani & Edmund’s engagement party from Episode 4 of The Haunting Of Bly Manor. The goal here was to create a sense of over-arching claustrophobic and unfulfillable expectation. The greatest challenge was to create Dani and Edmund’s life in photos, spanning several decades.
In the Motherland universe, the singular weapons our soldiers wield can be precise as an assassin’s blade or devastating beyond comprehension, so the place where this training happens needed to be suitably robust. For lethal training on the Fort Salem base, we created a “Rough Room”. Here our soldiers hone their skills in defensive and offensive combat situations.
In another universe, this place would be called a weapons training facility or firing range. Starting from that premise, we started with a contemporary “weapons facility” theme. Thanks to Brian Kane’s ongoing discussion and regular input from Steven and Eliot, we were able to bring our initial idea fully into the Motherland world.
