In this one-off ‘Close Up’ about Len Wiseman’s Total Recall, Prime Focus World VFX Supervisor Alex Pejic gives a detailed account of how PFW went about creating the spectacular ‘Synth’ robots, alongside some stunning breakdown footage of our work on the film.
In mid January of 2012 I was introduced to the very talented Patrick Tatopoulous who brought me on board as a freelance designer to build and develop graphics and user interface technology for the world of Total Recall. It was an amazing opportunity that I knew I couldn’t pass up seeing as the original was a childhood favorite of mine. I soon discovered just how vast the world Len Wiseman and his team had built and knew right away I had lots of work ahead of myself. My total contribution on the project lasted about 5 months, it was an intense amount of work to be done about 200 shots in total made it to the final print of the film.
The reel above is a portion of the graphical elements I created for the film. All the approved designs where then taken to the animation stage by my very talented friend Ryan Cashman whom I worked very closely on during the remainder of our stay on the 5 month project. Our work was then sent to post production houses where the designs where composed into the final print of the film. A HUGE thank you to the enormously talented team on this project and for having us on board with you guys it was a great journey! CHEERS!
