I directed over an hour of motion comics cinematics for “Marvel Heroes”. The game story was penned by Brian Michael Bendis, and starting with Brian’s scripts we storyboarded and cut animatics in-house. We worked with comic book artists for the artwork, and then animation and compositing was done by The Sequence Group. This unique style of storytelling was often called out as one of the highlights of the game both by fans and in reviews.
The Marvel Heroes opening/cinematic movie featured CG and 2D animation. The CG part was done by our small in-house team, and the 2D animation was done by Titmouse. We storyboarded and did the animatic in-house, and I did all of the CG character animation for Dr. Doom and the Watcher. It was really fun to work on, and the fan response was great, getting over 100,000 views in 24 hours. One of my favorite projects I’ve worked on.
