Ghost in the Shell - World Building 01

The live action Ghost in the Shell anticipates a world where the line between human and machine is blurring by the day. During the design process Rupert tasked the designer's with creating 'vignettes' of the day to day life in Newport City based on location photos he had taken in Hong Kong. The focus became on creating groups, or cliques, of people rather than populating the world with a scattergun of cyber-enhanced people.
