The Invasion is the fourth movie adaptation of the classic 1955 sci-fi novel The Body Snatchers. An alien species wants to infect human kind with a virus that turns people into stone cold humanoids devoid of emotions. The end credit sequence by Prologue’s creative director Danny Yount visually relates planetary bodies in outer space to the macro world of the vascular system – a world that we’ve only recently become aware of by way of the electron microscope, but remains quite alien to us nonetheless. The title sequence evokes memories of the 1966 sci fi movie Fantastic Voyage.
“It’s the most ambitious CG project I’ve ever worked on,” says Yount. “We had to bring in a medical animator slash illustrator – we did all this in 3D – from Harvard, Eric Keller, who wanted to get into show business. He did a lot of work in ZBrush. There was a lot of good thought and engineering on Eric Keller’s part in order to pull this together.”
