What's in the box?

It all started back in 2009 when Director Tim Smit, than a physics student, created a short What’s in the box? for a local film festival. The 9 minute film, shot from a fist person shooter perspective, gained international attention.
With the game community initially thinking it was a teaser for a new Half live game and Hollywood interested for it’s unique quality, the film became a hype. After several offers to fund the film didn’t pan out Tim got the then rising star Dan Stevens on board and found a partner in Film Nation.

I started work on this film 4 years before it’s release. Tim asked me to develop the head-up display, called the BCI. Which was super cool of course, because it is seen in almost every shot. But also an interesting challenge, to design and animate an interface that would support the story and not be distracting for it being constantly on screen.
