The long-storied genre of Action/Adventure films are in a bit of a funk lately. Whether you want to admit it or not, this genre is ironically suffering due to its submission to the growing trend of using completely CGI sets over that of real, tangible backdrops. This was perhaps most evident in movies like the three Hobbit prequels, where Azog the Defiler (along with a vast array of characters) paled in comparison to the intricate real-life counterparts of those in the original Lord of the Rings movies.

In this increasingly digital age, people are reverting back to real analogue experiences—from books to movies. Thankfully the latter of which is in good hands thanks to the team over at movie user interface group Blind Ltd. Having graced the film industry for over 14 years, Blind LTD. has worked on movies such as The Dark Knight, Skyfall, and the most recent of which, Rogue One. The design group does a remarkable job at breathing life into the often-overlooked objects on screen, like a distant display, which may or may not have any vital plot information. Through this subtle approach, a whole world is made believable, and that is one of the many powerful elements the genre of Action/Adventure’s so desperately needs today.
As aforementioned, Blind LTD. has an impressive client list, having worked on both of the latest Star Wars movies, along with Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Series, and several James Bond films. With that list on your CV, you can expect this talented group of designers to set the backdrop to many great movies for years to come.
