ION game official trailer (and previz)

To complete (for now) my ION-related posts, here is the trailer I directed as a teaser for our game, created by animation house Platige. It was unveiled by Dean at E3 2015 a couple of weeks ago. Apparently the audio (via Tom Johnson) was so fantastically bassy it was shaking the auditorium.

One of the first things I did was to create a rough 3D previz to test whether my concept for the teaser could potentially work or not (from an informative and impacting point-of-view). This was then used as an initial blockout guide for animation house Platige to start working from.
