The CG company responsible for the user interfaces in “Guardians of the Galaxy” has released a showreel highlighting its stunning work.
For me, one of the reasons that the characters of Rocket and Groot worked so well, in addition to the excellent CGI, was the fact that these two fantastical characters were grounded in scenes that felt so immersive. And the interfaces, with their cool alien fonts, were a big part of that: Rocket screening for bounties, the prisoner identification software used by the Nova Corps, the Milano's control panels, the amazing 3D spheres used to control the Dark Aster. This is a really interesting little video highlighting the excellent, detailed work done by this firm for the movie.
