Quoteleft This is one of Ark’s biggest projects to date – over 30 minutes of animation for the latest installment in Atari and Reflections’ Driver series, equivalent in running time to a third of a full feature-film. Sixteen separate linking scenes were created; to introduce new characters, give out mission instructions, expose plot twists and advance the game’s storyline. The game takes place in both 1978 and 2006, and the brief was to capture the look of both eras. An unlikely cast of over 32 characters were motion captured, modelled, surfaced and rendered to an extremely high level of realism. Quoteright
