The making of Ready Player One movie required years of effort from artists and technicians around the globe, including the design studio Aaron Sims Creative. The Ready Player One effects are dazzling, but inserting all those Ready Player One easter eggs we’ve been scrutinizing since the first Ready Player One trailer required a lot of work behind the scenes. Before the Ready Player One vfx could be handed off the ILM, many of the RPO characters were designed by the team of artists at ASC.

In this Ready Player One breakdown, our making of featurette speaks to some of the artists who had a hand at designing the thousands of background characters that populate the Oasis in the film by Steven Spielberg.
