Deadly super-morphing powers, A grieving solider and a post-apocalyptic New York – Its Activision’s Prototype 2
We collaborated again with director Reynald Gresset and
72andSunny to create this gritty promo trailer for Activision's
long awaited release of Prototye® 2 'The Power Of Revenge.' Set
against a haunting version of "Hurt" by Jonny Cash, we're
introduced to game's Hero character, Sgt James Heller and his
emotional plight leading to a climactic end.
Working to a tight schedule, our VFX team created vivid CG
elements that were integrated into live action and actual game
footage to bring a ravaged New York city landscape to life.
This landscape really immersived the viewer in the world Sgt
Heller's story and the vision of director Reynald.
Will Cohen, Executive producer explains, "It was great to get to
work with Reynald so soon again after the success of Mass Effect
and with 72 and Sunny.
"Our main challenges were several complex shots where
Heller impacts with the pavement and the concrete is thrown up
towards camera, not to mention the almost full CG environments for
the falling shots that were turned around super fast. We love
the end film and its really impactful".
Revenge is a dish best served cold and mutated.
