Editing for animated, South of Midnight reveal trailer.

*2023 Clio Entertainment Grand winner - Games: Audio | Visual, CGI Teaser

Compulsion Games founder Guillaume Provost first approached me in the fall of 2021 about collaborating on a reveal trailer for their latest game, South of Midnight. They entered production in spring 2022 and I worked with co-director Brent George on the edit, consulting on additional shots (including the over-the-shoulder shot shown above) and ensuring we had all the material we needed at the pre-vis stage.

Over May 2022 - July 2022 I managed the project and editorial, working with a number of partners both in-house at Compulsion and externally. This included animation supervisor Mathieu Di Muro at Agora Studios, who patiently guided me through animation workflows with a gloabl team of animators; Chris Fox, the audio director at Compulsion; Miguel Hernandez (senior lighting artist, Compulsion); and Vincent Schneider (Associate Animation Director, Compulsion); all under the careful coordination of Producer Anouk Bachman (Compulsion Games). This session editorial management also included additional work from Skylight Collective.

Finally, I assisted the team again in May-June 2023 to delivery the final trailer for the Xbox Games Showcase 2023.

This was a huge learning experience and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such talented people -- it made me bring my A game.
