Here’s a great visual effects reel by Artifex Studios showcasing their work for Continuum season 2.
*Warning there may be a few spoilers for those who haven’t seen season 2 yet.
As you’d expect, season 2 showcases a bunch of cool new technology. Along with some impressive shots transforming Vancouver into a futuristic city are a collection of touch and holographic interfaces, and of course Kiera’s suit and HUD.
Highlights include the holographic tabletop game and the shot of Kiera drawing a circle on a glass surface and then extruding out a holographic sphere. I love this idea of drawing or creating your own interface, something that we covered in our showcase post on fabricated interfaces.
I’m also still a huge fan of the gun interface, and it was quite cool seeing Kiera scrubbing through the different options available before firing that special shot. Until now we hadn’t really seen the full potential of what those guns are capable of, so it was really exciting!
