Opening movie for Respawn/EA’s new Xbox One game, Titanfall.
This cinematic sequence details humankind’s escape to the stars, using footage of space travel, before utilising Spov’s CG and animation skills to visualise Titanfall’s game world – one where ships and people have travelled to the farthest reaches of the universe.
Influenced by footage from NASA’s Cassini mission to Saturn, and particularly an edit by Chris Abbas , the sequence blends the stark and minimal realism of space with the preparation of the massive Titan mechs for their planet fall.
Titanfall’s narrative exists in our universe at an indeterminate point in our future. Using a mix of archive materials, CG and VFX Spov have woven together the human and science-fiction elements to create a holistic storytelling piece.
