A little more Battleborn for today.

When Rath is the bowling ball you're guaranteed a strike every time.

I love Seerum's facial expressions on Rath in this shot. This one was fun to composite (I also threw in an assist on the FX at the end). 

There was so much camera motion that we almost ran out of background at the very end. Pretty sure you can spot it if you know where to look. Haha.

Nice animation, my only criticism is that your action sequences are almost too fast paced between scenes, it can be difficult to interpret what is happening, (yes I know that anime uses this style in fighting scenes), but is almost a little overdone and too faced paced in some clips.

That's fair to say. Every animator has their own peculiar sense of timing. For me, I don't mind going fast. The action is still entirely readable, even if it comes across as a bunch of flashing lights to some. :nod:

The heavy action works as a sequence and doesn't last more than thirty seconds before the pace slows in the opening cinematic. Seerum, the guy who keyframed the characters in this part, tends to push the speed of his timing. I figured that the action would still work as readable here because there's enough of a lull after Rath hits the ground to allow the viewer to catch up before the final slash.

Just my thought process while directing these parts. There's more to it, of course, but I've been long-winded enough already. Haha.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, man. It's not always easy to come out with them.

The fact that you said "almost too fast-paced" put a smile on my face. :XD:

This is part of the opening cinematic for a game called Battleborn. It just came out this week and is on XBone, PS4, and Steam (PC). :nod:

You can find three cinematics like this in the game.

the work you guys did on this game is gold...
I don't even play games but i want to buy it just to see the these scenes.

Thank you. That speaks volumes.

You know, at first, players were only allowed to see the opening cinematic once, but some people liked it so much that they got Gearbox to patch the game and allow them to see it again. That's crazy to me.

you're welcome, and yes it's trippy, but it also sounds like an opportunity.

1st thing that comes to my mind is you guys doing a series of animated shorts of the game (or something else). Shorts similar to the Star Wars: Clone Wars the 2d animated micro-series created by Genndy Tartakovsky.

I bought those INSTEAD of ANY of the Star Wars prequels. 

so yeah great work, not sure if or where you can take it but you've got people wanting more.
All the best.
