Title: Mission Impossible - Rogue Nation
Clients: Paramount
Services: Screen Graphics

The fifth instalment of the action film franchise sees Territory's deft on-set screen graphics support writer and director Chris McQuarrie's clever script, tense action and sense of fun.

Approached by production designer James Bissell and art director Paul Inglis for on-set graphics support throughout filming, we worked directly with writer and director Chris McQuarrie to support his script, characters and sense of fun. In addition to story and plot points, we had to be sensitive to the franchise expectations, balancing futuristic hi-tech with real-world credibility. In the past, the Mission: Impossible franchise has used technology to emphasise technological advancements within the spy agency, but McQuarrie wanted our graphics to tell stories, and heighten a particular aspect of a character, often with a great sense of humour and emotional resonance.In addition to graphics that were central to story clarity, we were able to contribute to the narrative development of the Torus scene, a key action sequence, helping to figure out the logistics of the unfolding action. This level of practical input provided an opportunity for us to get a deeper insight into the storytelling process and at the same time proved how useful screen graphics can be as a narrative tool, both in front of and behind the camera. Deliverables included interactive UI and graphics for floorplans, operating systems, aerial drones footage, background displays and mission briefings across wall screens, laptops, tablets and mobiles.
