Tribute to Dungeons & Dragons
Our goal is to tell the story of the quests and illustrate the evolution (level up) of our three heroes with a 3D motion design trailer in freeze time that is graphic, dynamic and epic all at once.
To do so, we will dive right into each of the hero’s magic powers, which contain floating dioramas of epic combat scenes.
These mini-settings are inspired by the designs of Dungeons & Dragons codex covers and board games.
More specifically, the Bard, with his green magic, will transport us to the lush forests of Sharandar.
Then, the Dwarf, with his fire power, will plunge us into the heart of the Mount Hotenow volcano.
Next, the Elven, with her electric magic, will teletransport us to a Gith base hidden on an asteroid.
Finally, during the ultimate combat against a Beholder or a Dragon, we find them together amidst the fragments of Nevertower. These fragments slowly come together to form the tower again in the center of the city of Neverwinter.
The compositions inspired by D&D illustrations, the overall design that brings board games to mind and the rich quality of the monsters and environments are all elements that will give this trailer a nostalgic yet modern feel that will appeal to connoisseurs, while encouraging new players to discover the intricate world and extraordinary adventures of Neverwinter.
