The original shelling sequence created by Mamoru Oshii and the Studio I.G. team, was a stunning achievement. In developing concept art for the live action counterpart, we created detailed descriptions of the steps within the process and then attempted to echo the tone of the original anime sequence with bold, graphic compositions. Illusions of scale and distance were applied and physical sciences such as fluid dynamics and acoustic resonance were referenced. The lenses and colour palette of Stanley Kubrick's films were also a major influence.
