Territory Develops UI Elements for 'The Martian'

Publish date:

Territory, represented by ODD (Office of Development & Design), partnered with specialists at NASA to design the user interface (UI) technologies featured in the 20th Century Fox film The Martian. Territory collected a wealth of information, including modern-day interface designs used by astronauts and ground control. “We stayed true to the data NASA provided,” says creative director David Sheldon-Hicks about the final look of the UI elements in the film. “All the interactive controls came from real data, and that helped [director] Ridley [Scott] tell a compelling story, while never straying away from reality.”

A number of effects created by Territory are featured in the film, including images, text, code, engineering schematics, and 3D visualizations based on authentic satellite images showing Martian terrain, weather and mission equipment.
