RACE TO WITCH MOUNTAIN
Distributor: Disney/Buena Vista
Development Studio: Amalgamated Dynamics Inc.
My Role: Concept Artist
It was a real thrill to design a creature that was going to hunt down and put the hurt on Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
This particular galactic bounty hunter had to be menacing but not horrific, as it was ultimately going to be in a family Disney adventure film. The design explorations attempt to find that sweet-spot.
You can see the concepts getting distilled down from organic technology, alien luminescent hieroglyphs/crop circle designs, down to the very no-nonsense and utilitarian design that you see in the film.
My background in Industrial Design always comes in handy when having the opportunity to work on designs that require a degree of believable functionality.
