SSX – Trailer 2, “Own the Planet”
Agency: Modus Operandi
Production Company: Electronic Arts
Director: James Ricker
In our second game trailer for the Electronic Arts SSX Franchise, Image Engine dialed up the action to demonstrate what it takes to ‘Own the Planet’. The FX team built a custom snowboard rig in Houdini that allowed the artists to define which edge the rider was on and the amount and direction of the powder they would disrupt. This was then combined with some complex re-timing tools to allow for the epic bullet time moments throughout the trailer. Gnarly!
