For the release of Pierre Morel’s 2018 film Peppermint starring Jenifer Garner, Supervixen were asked to weigh in creatively on 2 main components, Screen GFX that help convey the film’s narrative as well as the Main on End. The following imagery on this page covers some of the assets we created to serve this project.
Peppermint is a vigilante action film based on the character Riley North. Five years after her husband and daughter are killed in a senseless act of violence, Riley returns from self-imposed exile to seek revenge against those responsible and the system that let them go free.
The Opening Prologue
The opening prologue of the film was a simple approach. One that plays off the the displacement of Riley’s character by hand cranking the film and subsequent text animation throughout.
When dealing with the screen GFX, we had to create the missing 5 years of Riley’s life. This involved recreating the path walked by Riley as she travelled the world through various war torn countries, learning the art of combat and survival.
Once established the various corresponding artwork was made.
Additionally, Supervixen needed to create the all GFX displayed in the LAPD RACR Room. The RACR room (Real-Time Analysis and Critical Response) is a division of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) analyses crime city-wide on a real-time basis to look for patterns and make deployment recommendations.
With this resource existing today, realism was an integral part of the design process.
Main On End Credit Sequence
The MOE also followed a simple approach with its design aesthetic. It was important of us to maintain the cranked camera look, so we filmed hand held camera data with the subtle movement we liked. We then captured that data and brought that into our editing suite to allow us the opportunity to adjust additionally if needed.
It is a simple look, but one we were quite happy with.
