Dishonored

Director

JON SAUNDERS

Client

Bethesda Softworks

Bethesda and Rokkan wanted to create 3 prequels to the AAA videogame, Dishonored, to help promote the game prior to it's launch. Each piece was meant to give a bit of backstory to the world of Dishonored, but Rokkan and Bethesda wanted to create a completely unique visual language for these shorts. Jon and his team took inspiration from Egon Schiele and many stark black and white illustrations for their look and embraced the hand crafted feel for the piece as a whole. In the end they generated around 3,000 unique frames in Photoshop in order to animate this piece.
