Axis was commissioned by Riot Games to create the new animated series to open a door to the League of Legends IP. Each short animated film gives an insight into the various regions of the League of Legends' fictional world, ‘Runeterra.’
Diversity has always been at the heart of Axis’ work for years, so we jumped at the chance to explore a new style of storytelling for the LoL champions, expanding Runeterra and the lore that we know and love. With a focus on performance, the team used keyframe animation to sell the emotion and understand the ideals of each region as they vie for your allegiance.
Set in the wild and icy beauty of the Freljord, Braum, a young warmother, and her family are surrounded by the Frostguard. It is a harsh and unforgiving land and the young warmother must make the ultimate sacrifice to save her child.
