I decided to watch a few of the films on the brief to give me inspiration and begin the design process.
Fims i watched:
. ‘The Road’ (2009)
Post apocalyptic story of a man and his son trying to survive after catastrophic natural disaster.
. ‘The Day after Tomorrow’
All about the effects of Global warming as a climatologist tries to reach his son in New York before it’s immersed in water and taken over by a new ice age.
. ’28 days later’
A contagious ‘rage’ virus spreads within four weeks without any known cure. A group of survivors try to find a place of safety.
As i watched the films i made notes of recurring problems throughout the films to help me generate some ideas.
The Road… recurring issues.
Lack of Food and Drink.
Trying to remain sane – not knowing the time/ date/ month/ year.
Could design a gadget to tell the time, something to do with how a sun dial works and casting shadows.
The day after tomorrow.
The fear of the unknown.
How to sustain a world underwater.
Create an underwater device… underwater packaging.
28 days later.
Fear of catching the virus.
How to stop it spreading.
Design a mask that stops the victim from being contaminated by the virus.
