Working on the trailer for highly anticipated video game Destiny by Activision and Bungie are director Jon Favreau (Iron Man), actor Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, Revolution), visual effects company Digital Domain, and advertising firm 72andSunny; the 60 second spot premiered online today and will air during the NBA playoffs on Saturday.
Digital Domain has released a series of images which utilized the Moon and Mars environments directly from the game engine and incorporated camera angles which respect the geometry of the source material. Motion-capture performers were recruited resulting in CG and live-action elements being blending together under the watchful eyes of DD Visual Effects Supervisors Jay Barton and Richard Morton. “Digital Domain approached this spot as filmmakers,” stated Jon Favreau. “The artistic vision they brought along with the technology made for a fun collaboration."
