At metricminds, we are huge fans of the Crysis series especially after having worked across the franchise (be sure to check out our Crysis entries on the site!) You can imagine our delight when we were hired by EA to team up with Crytek and Albert Hughes to help create an episodic cinematic series inspired by the upcoming premium shooter Crysis 3. Our team were asked to take care of the motion capture, motion editing, scene assembly, detail modelling, lighting and camera setup.
Each stunning episode has been produced using the powerful CryENGINE 3. We created shots within the engine for Crytek in order to achieve optimal cinematic visuals. The “Seven Wonders” episodes set the scene & story as well as immersing the viewer in the Crysis 3 world. The first episode called “Hell of a Town” was launched on December 12th 2012 and second titled “The Hunt” launched on the 20th December.
