Power Up

explainer video

Briefed to create a set of feature videos with a difference for each in-game power, we came back with the idea of doing them in the style of NFL / Super Bowl replays. The Power Play of the Day videos elevate the poker based game to a global sporting event. In a much more engaging take on the typical explainer video, The upbeat commentary of two casters bantering over game footage shows the powers in play in key moments of a high roller game.

To date Villain has produced seven feature videos, creating and managing each stage: concept, script, 3D intro, avatar development, reconstructed gameplay, VO recording, and editing through to the final cut.
