Daily Motion Graphics #638 / Star Renegades

By June 30, 2020 No Comments


In a not so distant past, we got asked to collaborate with Raw Fury and Massive Damage to create a story-driven cinematic anime trailer for their new game… What a brief!

The epic game Star Renegades, needed an equally epic trailer, and we were of course up for the task! To make an anime project like this is the very reason why some of us started with animation in the first place. Anime classics is a constant source of inspiration and here the team got the chance to play with some good old cliches after we’ve rewatched our favorite anime movies and shows. The story takes place in a distant future, in the everlasting rebellion against the Imperium, we get to follow our heroine, Wynn, through glimpses in past and present time as her life surrounds the destiny of the rebellion; Resist, Reclaim, Revive, Repeat. Not to feel intimidated by our source of inspiration (the best-animated movies ever made…) we approached the project to convey the dark basis of the game and challenge ourselves with both fast and slow, emotional, and typical anime scenes to see how far we could push it.
