Mikros Image has completed an impressive trailer for Ubisoft’s soon-to-be released Far Cry Primal videogame.
Mikros image teamed up with Ivan Grbovic, agency BETC and production house Wanda for this new trailer who sets the hero in prehistoric times.
Commencing with a scene of hightech modern warfare, the trailer follows a soldier’s experience anachronistically through the battlefields of time. He ultimately finds himself facing a saber-toothed tiger with nothing more than a bone in hand to fight for survival.
Shot in Croatia, the trailer features an array of visual effects : futuristic helicopters deploy soldiers in a modern military operation, a herd of mammoths encounter a magnificent mountainous setting, and finally a gigantic saber-toothed tiger snarls and bounds towards us.
Christophe Huchet, vfx producer comments “we did some stunning visible vfx such as the futuristic helicopters, animals, great environments but also a lot of invisible effects too, as we intervened an almost every shot”. One of the challenges of the project was to succeed to make the heroe move from one setting into another very smoothly. “Impressive military action scenes were also flogged with explosions, smokes, and , inflamed arrows, gunshots.
We used Maya for CG, Houdini for FX, Yeti for fur and Nuke and Flame for compositing & integration.
