The Bureau: XCOM Declassified




The Mill joined Team One to create a new trailer for 2K and 2K Marin's launch of The Bureau: XCOM Declassified video game. 

Set in 1962 during the height of the Cold War, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified trailer tells the story of the covert XCOM organization's first encounter with the enemy. While video game launches traditionally include a trailer, Mill LA helped to create teaser spots alongside Team One to build up the release of the highly anticipated video game.

"We love working in the gaming area," says Mill LA producer Jess Ambrose. "This project was really exciting because we got to shoot it using a cinematic style which helped dramatize the VFX assets that we created."
