Last month, I was able to get in touch with a company called Big 3 Media, and asked them to help me make a video. The video is going to be used as a promotional tool for a video game that would be coming in the fall. Although the video doesn’t have a realistic art style, I wanted to have the video make with real actors to get people into the mood that they are in the game when they are playing it. The video has a dramatic tone and gives viewers the feeling that they are all alone in space.
The video begins with a person jumping out of a space ship onto an unknown space station. The station is dark, and the person is exploring it using a special visor that can show them things that the normal human eye can’t. The person also has a small cannon mounted on their arm for offense. Not long after entering the station, creatures emerge and attack the person, causing them to fire the cannon in retaliation. The person defeats the creatures easily and showcases all of the abilities that it can do. At the end of a corridor, the person encounters a large creature that looks more threatening than any that came before it. The creature roars and the person raises the arm cannon. The cannon charges with a bright light as it prepares to fire and the video ends.
In order to create the video, a lot of special effects had to be used, as it would have been impossible to shoot the video in space. I was even able to take part in the commercial. The roar that the large creature makes is simply my voice after being altered by a computer. They told me to make a roar that sounded like a movie dinosaur.
