Call of Duty: Black Ops II Uprising

The Replacers

Summary

Get Replaced

To introduce Call of Duty's latest game 'The Replacers', The Mill LA was brought in to provide all the VFX in this spot promoting the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

In the comedic video, actor Peter Stormare acts as a literal 'replacer, filling in for Call of Duty fans in their everyday lives as they play the actual game. The new version of this game includes new multiplayer maps, a new Zombies co-op map and a multiplayer weapons which The Mill had to help with creating.

"Faced with an extremely tight schedule, we tackled one tricky seamless transition, multiple clean up shots, and a variety of set enhancements without bothering the 3D department at all," says Mill's 2D Artist, Tim Bird. "The challenge was having to subtitle the four minute piece in four different languages for a next day delivery - and per usual, mission successfully accomplished."
