Magic the Gathering – Motion Comic BTS

Magic the Gathering: 2D to 3D Process from Eyestorm Productions on Vimeo.

“[We don't have any gameplay...]” “[We don't really even have a game yet...]” “[It's going to release some time in the near future, I think...]” “[There's no game for you to capture from, but we need you to make something fast and we don't have much money for you to do this.]”

Chances are, you’ve had to say these lines if you’ve been living in the Mad Hatter’s world of video game marketing. Most likely, these scenarios have caused you to chew your food a bit faster and feel your wallet opening up like it’s about to buy a Ferrari. Luckily, we’ve been helping our patients with a cure for the upset-stomach-empty-wallet syndrome…and conveniently, it’s called “Magic.”

Yes, “Magic The Gathering: Duels of the Planewalker 2014″ came to us with the foresight that their temperature might be rising and asked us to produce and create an economical pipeline to bring their still artwork to life in a moving video. When we told them we’ll take their pain away and they can keep their arm and leg, surgery began.

If you find yourself contracting this syndrome, the number to call actually isn’t “911,” it’s really “310-582-3937.” So go ahead and call it while you check out our behind-the-scenes case study showing the full guts and glory of the operation.

Zombiu #1 Selling New IP


 

  • •#1 Selling New Wii U IP” (@ Wii U Launch)

They’ll bite you in the neck and kill you in one swift move. While we were both intimidated by the undead and being given a hefty agenda to market both the Wii U and ZombiU game at the same time, we managed to come out unscathed upon the game’s release. Within the first week of the console and game’s launch, ZombiU topped the charts for highest grossing sales for a new IP. All the live-action was shot in our post-apocalyptic stomping grounds (a.k.a: Los Angeles).

The Smurfs 2: The Video Game

    • •World Wide Release in 11 Countries

 

The Smurfs are back in a brand new big screen adventure, so a small screen quest was a no brainer. To make this trailer, we had to go right along with the Smurfs on their journey from the Enchanted Forest all the way to Paris, the City of Lights. The End result was a fun, energetic romp for the whole family! However, our tongues are still blue from eating smurf berries, and no amount of mouth wash seems to be making a difference.

Gameplay Trailer – SimCity

  • •#1 Simulation Franchise
  • •Over +400K Views on Youtube
    • •Custom Crafted Storyline and Game Capture

 

When EA came to us asking for a gameplay trailer made from a game that contains no cinematics, rendered scenes, actors, or a scripted storyline… we said, “hmmm.” Then later, we said, “aha!” Soon thereafter, we were elected mayor of not one, but three whole cities!… And proceeded to demolish every one of them.

The iconic simulation franchise SimCity returns, and with it comes the equally iconic disasters that can strike helpless cities at random moments. All and all, it was a lot of fun to let our imaginations run wild on a setting that in many ways is a blank slate, and see what grew and developed. Ironically, the same way you play Simcity ;) .
