Usually, working on video game cinematic or trailer involves creating a visual story in an already established world. In the course of our collaboration with 11 bit studios, we approached dozens of ideas before settling on animated illustration short movie with strong emotional narration that referenced the original game mood.
History presents the moment of the exodus of humanity after a cataclysm. It is told from the perspective of an unspecified member of the expedition, who is guiding the group of survivors. He describes in a concise manner the course of events and internal experiences, except for one deliberate exception, using the form of a third person.
The reference to the style of language may be the novel by Cormac McCarthy "The Road", in which the world is presented in dialogues with equivalents of sentences, reflections from rich descriptions. This function should be performed by illustrations - monumental, minimalistic in composition and rich in narration. They should reflect the spirit of emptiness and the hopelessness of the surrounding world devoured by the infinite whiteness. Despite the harsh conditions and naturalism of the described world, an interesting solution is the approach to the subject more poetically, which goes well with the visual form of storytelling. Events presenting causes explain mystically the omniscient lector in a few words.
