Kosinski turned to Bradley G. Munkowitz (GMUNK), whom he'd previously worked with on Tron Legacy. As lead interface graphic designer, GMUNK then pulled a team together that included Interface Graphic Designers Joseph Chan (Chanimal) and Jake Sargeant, and Interface Animators Alexander Perry (AP), Navarro Parker (Nav), and David Lewandowski (D-Lew). They were happy to reunite to share how much fun they had creating the 2D effects for the film using an Adobe workflow.
