Some of you might have seen the recent big screen adaption of Marvel’s Captain America. While the story might not have been the strongest, the vehicle design of the movie was truly amazing. Here we take a closer look at the creations for the movie by Daniel Simon.
“Lead Vehicle Designer Daniel Simon stepped out of his comfort zone to create vehicles with a believable look of the 40ies. ‘Simplicity’ was the main input given to Simon on how to translate the scripted vehicles into unique movie vehicles. Between November 2009 and June 2010 Simon created seven machines hand in hand with Heinrichs and Johnston at Marvel Studios in Manhattan Beach, Los Angeles. Intense research of both historically correct engineering and the Marvel Comic universe was part of every days work. Director Johnston – a blessed designer of Star Wars fame – guided Simon through the endless possibilities and variations, to find vehicles that could have truly existed, fulfill their purpose in the film’s story and be feasible for manufacturing on set.”
The amount of work and detail that went into each one of the vehicles featured in the film is incredible.
