RIOT Games + WAR

RIOT Games and the Valorant Global Esport team had the team at We Are Royale create & deliver the 2022 VCT Masters 2 campaign. We wrote the script, concepted the environments, modelled characters, world-built for ~4 intense weeks then animated, rendered, comped and edited the film in ~3 weeks alongside a grip of additional campaign elements. The team at We Are Royale showed out on this one and I couldn’t be more proud of the crew, their energy, patience and dedication to the job.

Special shout to WAR überproducer, Liz Lipka, who came in over the top to bearhug the project in the last weeks, taking both teams across the finish line in her arms.

Delivered hero film:
