Behind the Scenes of the Starcraft II Cinematic
This edition of the Blizzard Insider features an interview with Nick Carpenter the company’s Cinematics Creative Director regarding the process of developing the Starcraft II Teaser. Carpenter mentions that his concept for the video – the evolution of a space marine – has been in his thoughts for awhile now.
Nick Carpenter: The idea of turning the creation of a marine into a cinematic has been on my mind ever since we started working on the cinematics for the original StarCraft. When you click on that button to build a marine, what does that mean? Actually showing the marine being built gives us an exciting opportunity to show that in the StarCraft universe, even something that’s normally very mundane can have a truly epic feeling to it.
Carpenter goes on to discuss the building of his team, the process of concept to execution and how technology and storytelling have evolved since the original Starcraft and Brood War cinematics.
