Working on World War Z was definitely a very exciting challenge.
I was responsible for designing the look of Philadelphia overrun by zombies. One of the most relevant things I've tried to convey in these images was the look of the horde of zombies. The director wanted to achieve a sense of an overwhelming wave destroying everything on its path.
In the first image I showed the small RV driven by Brad Pitt and his family heading towards the Benjamin Franklin Bridge in the desperate attempt to escape the city. I played with scale to show how big is the incoming horde of zombies and how tiny is the army facing it.
The second image is a different location. The camera is looking at the square in front of Philadelphia's City Hall. The zombies are gathering in a circular formation, and at this point the center of the city is lost. Playing significantly with scale, values and lighting was one of the main elements of my work on this great movie, and I have to say that it was absolutely a very enriching professional experience.
I hope you liked it! ;)
