  • THE STORY
    ​​​​​​​
    In October 2017, much to my disbelief and delight, I started working as an offsite director at Axis Animation, a UK based company that specializes in producing AAA game trailers and cinematic content. This Opening Cinematic for Destiny 2: Warmind is the result of my first collaboration with Axis.

    We worked closely with the game developers, Bungie and Vicarious Visions, to create the intro sequence based on the script provided by Bungie. My involvement started very early on, with developing my own vision of the script, depicted by a 3d previz. This initial previz, as I’ve found out later on, was incredibly helpful with scoping the project and knowing what kind of roadblocks we might encounter later on.  

    The entire production lasted 12 amazing weeks, in which I’ve been able to learn and grow together with an incredible team of artists, and I’m truly humbled to have been a part of this experience, so a huge thank you to everyone at Axis!
    For those that have been following my work, you know that I like to include a lot of process imagery, but the nature of this project restricts us from showing any of the process images and videos unfortunately. Instead feel free to scroll through some of the personally selected stills that depict some of the key moments in Warmind opening cinematic. Enjoy!
