Dead Rivals: Cinematic Intro

Video Game Cinematic

Client: Gameloft
Project: Video Game Cinematic & Trailer

We love tackling story-driven projects at Handmade Creative. When Gameloft came to us with the brief of creating an intro cinematic, that would set up the story of this post-apocalyptic video game we jumped at the chance. We landed on the motion comics approach as a way to reflect the influences, style, and attitude of the game while keeping the cinematic distinct from gameplay. This filmic approach to a motion comic, creating a sense of depth in each scene, was technically challenging but the illustrators and animators on our team rose to the occasion.
