This series of images was inspired by dystopian feature films such as Blade Runner, 12 Monkeys, and The Zero Theorem, and is also a further development of themes explored in my portfolio entitled Futuretech.

Both projects employ extensive compositing using multiple elements shot on location and in the studio, from desert and urban landscapes to camera parts and studio models. Here are some examples of the process, from concept sketch to the final result.

The year is 2035.

Opening shot, before sunrise. A desolate landscape, with ruined buildings, and a large Texaco sign on the rubble. The sign is a remnant of a failed global energy policy that helped create this dystopian future.
