72andSunny and MPC released a live action gameplay trailer for the new Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
The Concept

The pre-production included sketches, pre-vis and testing camera placement in order to capture a first-person perspective during the live action cinematic.

Real-life vehicles like motorcycles and snowmobiles were referenced when creating the concept sketches of the hover bike.
Concept sketches for Exoskeleton suit
The team pre-vis'ed and planned out where the cameras would be placed using stuntdoubles.
The Production

Filmed on sets in the California desert, MPC LA transformed 8 weeks of preparation and shooting and 5 weeks of subsequent VFX work into an action packed gameplay trailer. Production included a significant amount of in camera shots to achieve the live action feel even though there was significant game and CG imagery.

RED DRAGON and Codex Action cameras were rigged to the stuntmen and used because they can withstand the extreme movements of the stunts.
Many scenes used background extensions that were matte paintings done by Rocco Grioffre using Nuke and Maya.
Legacy Effects produced the suits and MPC added CG effects.
After filming on the real bike, MPC used Nuke to Roto out the actor and place him onto a CG hover bike.
CG effects of the explosions, weapons, hover bikes and cities were created using Flame and Houdini.
The performance of the main actor was composited from six separate takes that were combined into the center of a fully CG shot.

MPC and 72andSunny captured the raw power of first-shooter combat and sets the stage for the launch of Activision's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
