Axis Studios created the trailer for Bungie’s Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris expansion pack, directed by Jon Yeo – Axis created FX, pre-viz, hyper-real animation, and character animation.
The events of Curse of Osiris take place on Mercury, following the Guardian’s efforts to rescue Osiris from the Vex in order to avert a dark future. The expansion’s plot touches upon the relationship between Osiris and his disciple, Ikora Ray.
The team at Axis worked in close collaboration with Bungie and Activision to create the sequences based on initial previz done by Bungie. Axis were responsible for additional concept artwork and previz to develop those initial ideas further, progressing them to final blocking, cinematography, motion capture and animation, before lighting, VFX, rendering and compositing.
