Below are images I created that both made it into the movie, as well as concepts for a never-built Wakanda. It was satisfying to see ideas percolate through to the final film after having followed through a serpentine journey of discovery, research, and ideation.
Below is an illustrated story sequence showing how Shuri could rapidly prototype an interior of a Lexus car to use it as an interface to remotely control the car that T'Challa surfs on top of in Busan Korea. This also had an early version of the Kimoyo Bead Server Fountain that was eventually cut out of the final film. The same sand nannite interface later is used to quickly grow a mockup interface for the Agent Ross character to remotely fly the Royal Talon Fighter.
Below is an illustrated story sequence showing how Shuri can holographically project a conference call with her Kimoyo communicator. In this sequence, she passes the interface to a larger Kimoyo bead, which in turn projects a life scale version of Okoye.
Below is an illustrated story sequence depicting how the volatile yet multi-purpose properties of vibranium nannites could be easily formed into improvised explosive device. Okoye grabs a handful of sand and is able to roll it into small beads, which she then tosses to T'Challa. Black Panther then exits through an irising floor and skydives onto the militants in the jungle below. This sequence also shows off the tactical lighting of luxury mobile command center.
Below is an illustrated story sequence of how the sand interface is also able to rapid prototype T'Challa's new vibranium nannite based Black Panther suit.
Below are concepts and ideas for various versions of Wakandan interiors and interfaces that never made it to the big screen. Desiging for a film is an organic process that changes as the scripts and budget develops.
Below is a 360 video showing some of the immersive concepts that were created for Black Panther. These feature never used alternate ideas that illustrate the journey it took for concepts to arrive to the eventual film.
