God Of War Ascension UK Cinema Logo Resolve

Over the next few weeks I'm going to share a lot of smaller projects that I've completed that couldn't show earlier. The first is quite different to the flat vector style motion graphics I usually create. Working with Sony I was asked to recreate the God of War Ascension logo animation to fit with the UK Cinema trailers. Using reference imagery from the video game and original trailer, I recreated this logo completely in After Effects. Using particular, shatter, custom maps, lighting and that thing I've always loved as a motion designer... rays & glows. A lot of tea & coffee was consumed in what were seriously long renders times to create this 8-second piece.
