Dead Rivals: Cinematic Intro

At Handmade Creative, we love directing story-driven projects. 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 and attitude of the game while condensing a lot of story beats in sixty seconds. Our 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.
