Death Star Tunnel Station

When developing Rogue One we wanted to show more of the Death Star laser tunnel. In the original movie it felt a like a very peculiar piece of set that felt a little disconnected to some degree. We asked, who are these technicians, how did they got there, what's that platform? This was my quick attempt at answering these questions. Glad it made it to the final movie (as well as the framing) with some minor adjustments.
