It was our privilege to collaborate with director Christopher Nolan on his blockbuster space epic Interstellar. For this film, we were asked to take part in the creation of the intricately detailed, hero spacesuit costumes with many specialty components, including the helmets and backpack systems

Extensive 3D modeling, scanning, and engineering ensured that all components of the custom-made suits looked amazing on camera. In addition, several rounds of camera testing and prototyping ensured a bespoke fit for both the actors and their stunt doubles.

Style and Size Variation

Some of the functional components such as the helmets and backpacks required an even more thorough design process to integrate the air flow system and microphones which lived within the helmets during filming. Additionally, our team created iterations of each of the components allowing different styles and sizes to be used for individual characters.

Specialty Components and Integration

Our rigid components, such as those crafted for the chests plates, had to be specially formed to the actors to ensure that our integration directly onto the soft suit underneath was seamless and durable, especially since these points were carrying the weight of the backpack straps. We also created a variety of components that integrated into the space suits that were removable to be able to feature as stand alone props as well. One of these components was a set of thrusters the actors wore on their forearms, which our team designed to securely attach to the suits regardless of the physical demands of the film.

CREATIVITY & EXPERTISE

From concept and design — including research, testing and fabrication — to a remote location where our technicians provided support during shooting, we’re proud to have enhanced the overall cinematic experience.
