Environments for GITS: Cityscape (Day)
Shots of the cityscape during day time (View Night Time HERE), including streets with vehicles (which leads to a Hanka Rolls Royce being crashed into), and a Fight in the Slum Area of the City - both of whom will be seen more in separate posts.
The usage of towering “holograms” utilising “humans” as advertising (on the skyscraper/buildings) is somewhat jarring, in lieu of overt billboards plastered everywhere, as seen in the 1995 anime.
Seeing it on street level seems interesting a juxtaposition against the folks walking the streets, but up high, it looks like giants are walking out from behind the building, like Ultraman LOL
Or maybe what would appeal more (to me personally at least) are more stylized “humanoid” interpretations and exaggerated forms, rather than straight-up “humans”. But I’d understand of it meant “big” corporations and businesses being able to afford such advertising, like Pharmaceuticals, and interestingly “Religion” - which I had felt a more diverse representation would be as jarring as “big money”, IMHO.
FYI: These images were screengrabbed/snapped from various trailers/tv-spots (pardon me for the slightly blurry ones tho), and I’ll attempt to update more for when they are revealed.
