Award-winning Reveal and Launch Date Trailers

Best Reveal Trailer
Global Entertainment Award
Secret Mode and The Chinese Room asked us to create these reveal and release date announcement trailers for Still Wakes The Deep, an atmospheric, narratively harrowing, and disturbingly beautiful game. We punched up some in-engine scenes as well as building custom shots from scratch to create these trailers that will quicken the pulse as we begin to uncover the depth of the secrets that the rig has to offer.

Reveal Trailer
As soon as the Chinese Room told us that this game was a Scottish “The Thing” set on an oil rig, we knew exactly what trailer we wanted to make. Moody, confident and foreboding. We worked with the whole team and decided that an unusually long opener across the ocean was striking enough to draw viewers at the showcase in and build anticipation. We deliberately weren’t going to show the monster but it was important to us that everything felt eerie to create fear of the unknown. So drawing on the style of A24 trailers, we chose a series of shots that left you feeling uncomfortable followed by a few shots of action to leave you wanting more. 

Release Date Trailer
For this second trailer for Still Wakes The Deep, we started to reveal more of the sinister secrets of the rig. We wanted to start moving the viewer from the unsettling fear of the unknown in the first trailer into hints of real horror. To bring the vision of our creative team to life, we layered some custom cinematic sequences with gameplay and this unforgettable, imploring voice over. We can't wait to reveal even more...
