Pelham Began in 2008 here in Los Angeles. We started by doing a lot of tests with design layouts and projection screens. After the tests were complete I started to design the final layout and interface for the MTA Headquarters. The hard part was knowing that entire MTA screen was to be built as one giant screen. It was actually 5 2k rear projectors that were being fed from 5 different computers to be in running sync. We also made it so that each one was interactive so that we could trigger them based on the scene and actors movements.
When we started filming I would have my meetings with Tony Scott the Director and Chris Seagers the production designer to go over the upcoming scenes and show them the graphics and how they work. Sometimes I would sit with the actors and run through the graphics with them if needed. While we were filming I would be next to Tony waiting for him to give me a cue to start the playback or match it to the actors performance.
During Post Production we made some changes and added a few new shots for VFX to burn in. I would design and animated the new elements and drop them into the cut for editorial to approve. After they were approved, I would send the elements to VFX for the final burn in.
