For this long awaited sequel, the team envisioned and brought to life soaring cinematic trailers that use realtime technology to immerse the viewer in this stunning sci-fi world.

Ryan, the director of the piece, said that the creative team were immediately drawn to the futuristic grandeur of the environments and elements in the game engine and found themselves asking “what if we were to shoot a gorgeous sci-fi film within this game?”. So that’s what we did!

We did all of our location scouting in-engine to find visually striking shots and then brought life to each these scenes - directing animations of deer, ravens and robots. Then we utilised new and existing models to set dress and complete environments and finally, we used cinematic lighting techniques and realistic camera movements throughout these pieces to emulate the feel of a live-action sci-fi film.

As well as having a huge reception with fans, our reveal trailer for The Tales Principle 2 has been recognised at international awards, having been announced as a finalist for VFX at the British Arrows and Best Reveal Trailer at the The Global Entertainment Awards.
