Stay Frosty Opening Credits



The moment I saw the first episode of True Detective this season I said to my wife, "Y'know, that would make a great pirate video for Eve." So, for the past week, I've been trying to find time here and there to pick at this a little at a time.

In the end it probably needs about eight more hours of tweaking and adjusting, but maybe not. It took 175 layers, 37 of which are Pre-Comps representing who knows how many other layers in After Effects. I pulled video from just about every CCP Games trailer of the past few years (anything before that looks dated now) and also used Project Jeremy for a lot of the images. (Thanks to t'amber!!)

There are a lot of constraints in building something like this from scratch. Primarily access to character animation. I did the best I could pulling from my three characters, but I could have done much more with better tools.

Having said all of that I think it is the best Eve video I've certainly ever done and I am extremely happy with how it turned out, and that finally I can share it with all of you.

Enjoy!! And Stay Frosty.
