Synopsis

-

Working on Assassin’s Creed was an immensely rewarding creative experience. Being a big fan of Director Justin Kurzel’s work, it was amazing to be able to immediately establish a great working relationship together.

The Animus

One of my favorite elements from the film is the Animus, which is machine that allows its user(s) to read and analyze a subject’s genetic memory. These memories can then be projected out onto an external screen, where it can be viewed and interacted with in three dimensional space.

 The Animus is
the key to your past.

Epoch is a chance for me
to connect with my childhood dream
of becoming and astronaut.

Title Sequence

The director Justin Kurzel liked the idea of branding and introducing the world of Assassin’s Creed through the look and feel we developed for the Animus.  Although this concept didn’t make it to the final cut of the film, we had an amazing time building the frames and title design.
