Our gaming team prove to be a force to be reckoned with once again with this explosive CGI teaser trailer for Bodycount. The results? Jaw-dropping devastation!

Our Mill directors Douglas Lassance and Jonathan Vuillemin picked up Codemasters' challenge to create, develop and shoot the thrilling 60-second spot.  They worked closely with our 3D animation team to create the intense trailer that was entirely devised and animated in-house here at The Mill.

Set in a post-war wasteland the game's trailer needed to reflect the dark atmospherics and action-packed drama.  Jonathan explains how he and the team brought it life, "For this project, we went straight from the 3D animatic to a coloured mood board. The advantage of that was to set the mood early on in the development process and to give some intentions about the details that needed to be added to each shot. The lighters and compositors then matched the painted frames as closely as possible, keeping true to the original concept and design."

Target - Bodycount is released this spring and will be available for Xbox 360 and PS3.
