Digital Domain Media Group (NYSE:DDMG) announced that Activision Publishing, Inc. and High Moon Studios tapped Digital Domain and Mothership Director Neil Huxley to create the new teaser trailer for the highly anticipated TRANSFORMERS: FALL OF CYBERTRON video game that premiered Monday, June 4, on SpikeTV’s GT.TV. Picking up where the first teaser (December 2011) ended, the new 90-second short delivers a fast-paced, high-impact battle sequence revealing new hero characters including fan favorite METROPLEX. The full trailer can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyW5KMMDjZw.
Featuring characters from Hasbro’s iconic TRANSFORMERS brand, the piece opens as the AUTOBOTS are locked in battle with the DECEPTICONS. GRIMLOCK is joined in combat against BRUTICUS by two new DINOBOTS, SWOOP and SNARL, as OPTIMUS PRIME is suffering at the hands of MEGATRON, SHOCKWAVE and STARSCREAM. Just as MEGATRON comes in for the final blow, OPTIMUS PRIME unleashes the colossal METROPLEX, who is the size of an entire city. METROPLEX heeds the call of the AUTOBOTS, powering himself with the last of the planet’s ENERGON to offer the first indication that the tides of this war may shift.
“The vision this time around was much more apocalyptic,” said Huxley, who also wrote the piece. “This trailer was all about more destruction, more atmospherics—all much bigger in scope. We had already explored the more emotional side of these characters with a slow-paced, dramatic slice of the story in the first teaser; with this one we shifted gears to accelerate the action. We knew that the client wanted to reveal METROPLEX in the climax of this spot. That was really the jumping off point, and we were given the creative freedom to develop the storyline that would hook the audience back into this world.”
Peter Della Penna, Studio Head at High Moon Studios, said, “With Digital Domain, you know you will always get something beautiful and technically precise. What we learned on this piece is that their work on the story and directing front is equally strong. It was great working with Digital Domain again and getting the full benefit of their creativity.”
