Tell the jury about type(s) of animation used and summarise any relevant challenges or techniques.

The film is directed by Fredrik Löfberg and our teams in Uppsala and Stockholm worked closely with Starbreeze to create it – from script to finished film – and utilized every tool in the tool box to push the boundaries both technically and artistically, including State of the art 3D Scanning for the creation of the characters, full Performance Capture combined with meticulous Key Animation and lots of FX. What makes it stand out? Extremely realistic pictures, attention paid to every detail, incredible processing of the motion capture data for absolute believable acting shifting away from the classic gameplay look. Also the in depth development of the characters so we already get an impression of their personalities before the game even started. The software used for this piece was: Maya, ZBrush, VRay, Houdini, Mari, Substance painter, Nuke.

Write a short summary of what happens in the film

It’s time for the third character trailer for Starbreeze’s game “Overkill’s The Walking Dead”. This time we meet Grant: A determined man with true grit. Set in a grim and dire situation Grant finds refuge in the one and only abandon car in the middle of nowhere. A full CG monologue where he has time to ponder about his past.
