Mill+ | Bungie and Mill+ team up again on the incredible teaser trailer for Destiny 2: The Final Shape. Continuing our ongoing collaboration with Bungie on their award-winning IP Destiny 2, our Mill+, VFX and Colour teams delivered a thrilling and vivid film for this cinematic trailer of the world-renowned game.
Mill+ Director, Ilya Abulkhanov, brings his distinct graphically cinematic flare to each shot — crafting striking and memorable visuals from the first frame to the last. The result? An emotionally charged and visually-stunning trailer fit that is sure to enthrall both devoted fans and casual players alike.
“After having read the initial brief, the intent was to have our protagonists hang out by the campfire, transfixed in thought while reminiscing and reflecting on past battles, wishes and what-ifs. The hope was to create an intimate and calming environment, while simultaneously throwing the audience elsewhere into the midst of dire combat through flashback-like memories. Our goal was to both gradually prolong the world about to be revealed while also teasing out Cayde, in his epic 'return'. I loved the idea of Ikora and Cayde set against the landscape of a whole new frontier waiting to be explored.”
“It was a huge honor to partner with Bungie for the reveal of the final chapter in their Light & Darkness Saga. Not only are we kicking off the culmination of 10 years of Destiny lore but we got to show the return of a beloved character, Cayde, in an emotional moment for Destiny fans worldwide.
It was an awesome opportunity to showcase The Mill’s digital human character animation in a grounded, intimate setting. Combining techniques built upon years of creating lifelike characters, motion capture, and hand-keyed animation, we brought Ikora, an important character in the Destiny universe, to life.
From concept to execution, we collaborated with Bungie on the world-building of the environment beyond the Veil. Our art directors, matte painter, and CG environment artists worked closely with the Bungie cinematics team to realize a new land in the Destiny universe.
