One of the greatest challenges of working on live action game trailers is properly translating the game property into the real world in an engaging and realistic way. Working with a Adhesive Games, DJ2 Entertainment, and director Jerry O’Flaherty (Gears of War), we pushed forward in executing these VFX heavy trailers to add to the buzz surrounding the game at both E3 and Comic Con. These 2 trailers were quite massive undertakings, from creating CG models from scratch to matte paintings, 3D animation, FX and compositing, time was of the essence to deliver these 2 trailers in time for their release dates. Especially as each shot in both the shorter E3 tease and full version trailer required VFX.
The result was wide coverage of the trailers on Machinima, the Verge, Motionographer and many other media outlets, garnering over a million views.
