Assassin’s Creed 2 marketing via short films


Not uninteresting to see the merger of games and film continue in the Assassin’s Creed universe. Not only did they start a short film contest ‘Live by the Creed’ (deadline Nov 17 – here is one contender) organized by IFC medialab but they also announced the release of a number of professionally produced live action short films before the game launch

Apparently 70 per cent of the ‘sets’ of the short films – shot almost entirely on green screen – are taken directly from the game. Most of the actors involved in the motion capture and voice-acting are also being used for the shorts. (says IGN)

Game-machinima-cosplay film-bluescreen short-feature film -all become seriously blurred. It fits only too well that, then, that Mechner pitched his idea for a Prince of Persia movie with PS2 game footage.
