Galaxy Fight Club – Trailer
In early 2022 we created this fun and energetic trailer for Galaxy Fight Club, the first cross-IP PvP game for the NFT universe.
We were briefed to create a fun, action packed trailer that encapsulated the gameplay, characters and design of the game in a compact 40 seconds timeframe and this trailer does just that.
The concept is based around a battle between two gamers and their NFT characters in the game world of Galaxy Fight Club. Our trailer opens with the two opponents selecting their NFT avatars before before transporting us, the viewer, directly to the havoc of the game’s multi player battle arena, where the gameplay takes place.
Design & 2D Animation
As the game itself is based in the NFT universe and the playable character avatars are known, existing NFT partner brands, we extrapolated on these existing base NFT designs to bring the characters featured in the trailer from their 2d source, into the 3d realm. We took care to remain faithful to the original NFT’s whilst making some small modifications to allow them to work most effectively in a 3d world.
We took the decision to create all of the FX elements for the animation using 2d techniques. These 2d elements were digitally drawn as standalone sequences, on every 2nd or 4th frame, and then incorporated into the 3d world within Unreal Engine. These bespoke 2d elements helped to give the trailer it’s unique style and playful energy.
Real-Time Unreal Engine Workflows
The creative team here at Interference Pattern felt that the visual style of this project made it a perfect fit for producing using our Unreal Engine CGI pipeline, instead of our alternate more traditional pre-rendered workflow using Side FX Houdini and Redshift. This real-time workflow allowed the team to work with a more flexible production pipeline and adopt a more iterative approach than would traditionally be deployed. The team were able to see “final visuals” much earlier on in the project and see the effect of animation and asset changes to a shot almost immediately, instead of waiting for a shot to go through lighting, rendering and compositing before the changes could be fully seen.
At Interference Pattern we create gorgeous animation and visual effects. From charmingly crafted 2d animation to stylised character-based 3d animation and complex photorealistic VFX.
