A while ago we got asked to collaborate with Massive Damage and Raw Fury to create a story-driven cinematic anime trailer for their new game… What a brief! <3
The epic game Star Renegades, needed an equally epic trailer, and we were of course up for the task! To make an anime project like this is the very reason why some of us started with animation in the first place.
Anime classics is a constant source of inspiration and here we got the chance to play with some good old cliches after we’ve rewatched our favorite anime movies and shows.
In a distant future, in the everlasting rebellion against the Imperium, we get to follow our heroine, Wynn, through glimpses in past and present time as her life surrounds about the rebellions prophecy, Resist, Reclaim, Revive, Repeat.
Not to feel diminished by our source of inspiration (the best-animated movies ever made) we approached the project to convey the dark feeling of the game and challenge ourselves with both fast and slow, emotional, and “over-powered”-styled scenes to see how far we could push it.
