In april 2010 “Chez Eddy” was asked to work on the next “Driver” game produced by Ubisoft. The goal was to make a 1 minute and half trailer giving the main story line and action you can see in the game. We were asked to use a very realistic rendering while keeping the 70’s look of the game.
Prdocution time spend over a little less than two months and look like a bit of a marathon!
I was in charge of the CG supervison and the Art direction.
