Samurai (2010) Concept Trailer
Concept trailer for Samurai.
Proof of concept trailer that Gears of War art director, Jerry O'Flaherty, created for Samurai. This was a no-budget piece shot in two days with a volunteer cast of five people against a white background and then me doing all the post work in a couple of weeks after that. The background plates were created in the Unreal video game engine with the intent of sharing all of the environment assets (rendered at higher res for the film) between the movie and the game. Jerry and crew only had access to more traditional costumes but the vision is to modernize and re-reinvent the look of the Samurai / Ninja genre for this 3D action epic.
