Space Elevator design for Ad Astra film.
This was my first time art directing a project (the ILM side that is). The whole team met James Grey during pre-production back when there was only a basic story treatment. We worked alongside the production designer Kevin Thompson to flesh out the look of this movie. Everything was meant to be utilitarian as we tried to capture the design look from NASA early missions (Mercury, Gemini, Apollo) so we didn't really want to design super high-end tech that didn't match that vision.
