Ah... my return to the game industry happened after being hired by EA Chicago 2005. Was hired to work on game animations... but because of my previous background, I ended up working on this teaser cinematic for Def Jam ICON.
Here's where I did all the motion capture editing, with some handkeyed facial animation and lip-sync. My friend Andy Konieczny animated the villian in black getting thrown back in the final shot.
It's too bad the game itself didn't turn out as good as the cinematic.
