Ghost in the Shell Page 2: More Screencaps
Here’s an example of Motoko with the invisibility mesh suit on. What’s kind of cool about this scene is her shadow. Just before this, she walks up to this guy, but still has to be careful, because while she’s in a mesh invisibility suit, she still has a shadow. This means the suit really serves as a ghost-hack, messing with your perceptions. It only “appears” to be invisible, but unfortunately, doesn’t work on the sun. This was a nice believability touch, I think.
Here’s a closeup of mesh invisibility suit.
Here’s Batau with a nice digital overlay shot of a map. I especially like the the window pane streaks here.
Oshii is absolutely terrific at dingy alleyways.
Here’s another great cityscape shot - look at the detail and perspective here! There are many “pause” type breaks where we see scenes of the city while the theme song plays. These are truly very cool imersive shots.
Something about 800 pound cyborgs scuba diving is cool!
Ah, the surgery of the future!
One more, the now-traditional mannequin shot. I can’t tell you the number of cyberpunk movies that imitate this imagery. Almost every movie with androids have it though.
