Bioshock photoshoot

11.24.2009

While the BIOSHOCK movie remains in development hell at Universal, a group of Atlanta fans decided to take matters into their own hands. Harrison Krix, a graphic designer and prop maker, spent over 500 hours constructing a Big Daddy suit. It's close to 7' tall, weighs about 60lbs and features an actual working drill. Whoa. Krix partnered with local photographer Matt Nicholson for a photoshoot inside the Georgia Aquarium that gives us an idea at what a live-action version of BIOSHOCK might look like.

I'll include a few samples below but you can head to Krix's site to see the full gallery. Also, if you're interested, the Big Daddy suit is for sale on eBay. It's selling for only $500, which I find hard to believe (I've seen bust replicas that cost almost that much). Now if we could only get Universal and Gore Verbinski on the same page and moving forward with this movie...

Extra Tidbit: "BioShock 2" is scheduled for release on February 10th.

selling for only 500$? wow the materials + time to make that - it must have been reletively easy --hay Universal, you should hire this guy to work for you! if this is what he can do on a limited budget imagine what he'd do if he had double that.

I think they were going for an authentic game look, thus the use of dim lighting, fish eye and sepia tones in a few pics. Really amazing shots.

And to the haters... it is art. It also happens to be real, which shows the level of detail they put into it. Just because you don't understand why they'd put that level of effort into it doesn't give you the right to call it a waste of time.

Why go to the trouble of making real world wardrobe if they were just gonna alter the images to look CG? Seems a waste of time and effort. They don't look like photos, Big Daddy especially.

Gore Verbinski's no longer attached as director. They hired the guy who did 28 WEEKS LATER instead.

Bioshock is one of those games I regretted playing through the campaign so fast. My only problem was the graphics.. the characters themselves just looked bad. I wish it had something of the Uncharted or Modern Warfare graphics so I could be more emotionally invested in the story.

Eh. Why put so much effort into doing this for real and then make it look like CG? I honestly thought these were art from the new game before I read the article.
