The player controls Kratos, the former servant of the God of War, Ares, who tricked Kratos into killing his wife and child. Kratos renounced Ares, breaking his blood oath to the god. For this act, Kratos was imprisoned by the three Furies.
This is a visual effects breakdown of the Ash effects for God of War
I worked with the talented team at Imaginary Forces last year to create the ash effects and various shots for the epic piece.
It was a privilege to work with Karin Fong (Director), John Hassel (Producer) and Jeremy Cox (Art Director and VFX Supervisor). Theo Daley helped with Art Direction in the pre-production stage, Desiree Lundsford and Daniel Scruggs also did some amazing work on this project!
I thought I would put this except up, the video was taken at MindTrek conference in Europe end of last year, which I did a talk on Transformers 3, Star Trek 2, Flight and a few other projects, which will be up shortly!
