ABZÛ – Accolades Trailer

After making our fan-made trailer for ABZÛ, Giant Squid gave us the opportunity to create the official accolades trailer for the game. We couldn’t pass it up, and have been making game trailers ever since. 

What We Did

  • Captured 4K footage which allowed us to reframe the shots as needed.
  • Used the camera system designed and implemented by Giant Squid to frame shots cinematically, and then have the diver swim by / across / away from the shot to create a sense of scale and vastness of the game world.
  • Created several versions of the accolades trailer for localization (translations provided by 505 Games). 
  • Edited the shots to emphasize Austin Wintry’s masterful score to create emotionally impactful shots.
