BRAWL STARS ARRIVES WITH PSYOP + GOLDEN WOLF CINEMATIC TRAILER
We partnered with Supercell to help craft a new world for the new game.
Mobile game maker Supercell, creator of Clash Royale and Clash of Clans, has officially launched its new game, Brawl Stars. To kick off the festivities for this global launch event, they’ve teamed up with frequent collaborators Psyop and Golden Wolf to create a fully animated one-minute launch film introducing the new characters and the world.
A combination of both 2D and 3D animation, set in a Neo-Western landscape, the Brawl Stars trailer brings a new visual style that breaks with the conventions of their previous hit games.
To achieve this fresh look, Psyop’s LA studio and Golden Wolf’s London HQ worked closely together, alongside creative agency Barton F. Graf and the game’s designers at Supercell. By dedicating 3D production of characters and environment to Psyop and 2D production of visual effects to Golden Wolf, each studio was able to combine their strengths towards a spectacular final film.
Directed by Golden Wolf, the fast-moving new film is filled with exciting action, creative characters, and dizzying effects. While Golden Wolf has previously been known for their 2D work on behalf of brands like Disney and Nike, Brawl Stars represents their first foray into large-scale 3D character animation.
“We couldn’t be more excited than we are about stepping into the universe of Brawl Stars,” said Golden Wolf’s executive creative director, Ingi Erlingsson. “To create the launch film for such a hugely anticipated game from a titan of the gaming world like Supercell is an honor, and working alongside the team at Psyop, with access to their amazing team of designers and animators, has made this opportunity all the more rewarding. We’re really proud of the result, and we can’t wait for fans to get their hands on the game and the film.”
Coming on the heels of Psyop’s investment in Golden Wolf earlier this year, this close co-production has yielded a film that is worthy of the game it promotes, one of the most anticipated mobile games ever made.
