Ghost of Tsushima – “A Storm is Coming” Trailer

Led by Director Aladino Debert and VFX Supervisor Matt Dougan, Digital Domain created a cinematic trailer for one of 2020’s most anticipated games–Ghost of Tsushima. In collaboration with the game developers, Digital Domain created 19-shots highlighting the journey of Jin Sakai, the last samurai on the Japanese island of Tsushima as he defends his people from the invading Mongol hordes. 

Utilizing everything from motion and facial capture to hand animation, the DD team offered viewers a glimpse into Jin’s journey through feudal Japan. The trailer features four distinct environments crafted with heavy attention to period realism and detail complete with individually animated swaying bamboo trees and leaves floating through battlefields torn apart by arrows, rain and ash.
