20th Century Fox
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
In our second involvement with the Apes Franchise at 20th Century Fox, Picturemill was asked to create a narrative sequence to explain the spread of the virus from the first film and its effects on the world, bridging the gap between the two installments.
Rather than a traditional editorial “news montage” sequence, Picturemill continued the design language created for the ending of RISE, to projection map news footage onto the globe in a unique display. Picturemill also had a major part in writing the narrative voiceover that drives the sequence. Picturemill worked very close with 20th Century Fox to source and manipulate the stock footage to serve the purpose of the story, before completing the sequence in stereoscopic 3D.
