Client : Riot Games, Axis Studios
Director : Jeremy Thompson
Role : Art Director
In 2020, I Art Directed at Axis for Riot games the Sentinels of Light event cinematics, the last stand for Runeterra. We pushed the painterly stylized look of 2d animation with the flexibility of 3d assets, hitting moody lighting and grounded cinematography in one of the most emotionally packed cinematics. I also got the chance to help with storyboards and designs on environments and FX.
In collaboration with Riot’s creative director Mike Berry, and Riot's director Jeremy Thompson, we aimed to craft an epic fight between light and darkness. Tense, dark and gritty sequences on the Shadow Isles, the land of the King, ruined, destroyed and cursed, would contrast with a poetic and beautiful reveal for his wife Isolde coming back to life in Camavor, the lost forgotten kingdom they once ruled upon.
