Making Another Trailer

Subject: Magnetic Billiards: Blueprint


Ste and I spent most of Saturday creating footage for our second (and final) Magnetic Billiards trailer. We filmed lots of gameplay footage on the iPad but the majority of the time was spent creating an 8 second animated sequence (250 hand drawn frames). This took a whole lot longer than we anticipated so hopefully it'll be worth it.

The rough cut turned out really well and Ste is currently adding a bit of polish to the individual frames in photoshop before we assemble them for the final trailer.

In the meantime, here's some of the unedited gameplay footage. This will likely be cut down to a couple of seconds in the actual trailer. I'm really pleased with how this turned out and how vivid the colours look. Using a decent camera (thanks Bone!) clearly makes all the difference.

I expect we'll release the trailer on or around the time the game becomes available. Which, as ever, is 'soon'.
