In November, I was hired to create the promo and cut scenes for the computer game Unstoppable Gorg. The game was released this week to great reviews – available on the Ipad/iphone and on your Mac/PC.
The brief for the contract was to find and cast models and create a very vintage 1950s science fiction B-Movie appeal. I had some great contracts from my model work in the past and immediately hired LouLou D’vil, a burlesque dancer who recently finished second in the World Burlesque competition. She was perfect for the story’s psychic plant seductress from another planet. The rest of the actors fell into place quickly and we found ourselves doing a full day shoot at the Ajaton Joki studio. Then I raided my costume closet for capes, necklaces, vintage dresses, pearls, cheap crowns, etc. and together with amazing work by the client’s art team, we had ourselves a session ready to go!
12 hours later, gigs of video and promo shots taken, and one messy studio produced some great footage ready for the vintaging. My client took the raw videos and put together some great (and cute!) cut scenes and intro videos for the game. This was easily the most fun I’ve ever had producing commercial work – certainly the most fun working at my studio!
