I've always had a liking towards action video games, especially when I became hooked on Halo. Graphics and movement have changed so much since the first game was released in 2001, everything looks so realistic nowadays. I really liked this piece for the action, sound and lighting. I think Optical Flares from Video Copilot was definitely used in this but ever since I saw Star Trek from 2009, I cannot help but think space is associated with intense lens flares.
Creating an action short is tough as it is when using your own camera but when creating it in empty, 3D space, it is a true challenge.
