MULTI AWARD WINNING 3D/CG ANIMATION STUDIO, PLASTIC WAX SETS SIGHTS ON MMO AND MOBILE CONTENT

May 23, 2013 - Plastic Wax Studios, award winning creators of full motion videos seen across multiple AAA console titles such as Saints Row: the third, BioShock: Infinite, and FALLOUT: NEW VEGAS today announced the release of its new cinematic for the highly-anticipated Lego Marvel Superheroes .   The action-packed trailer features the heroics of Marvel’s favorite Avenger team including Spiderman, Thor, Wolverine, the Hulk and Iron Man – all creatively familiarized in Lego stylized proportions! 

“Working with both the Marvel and Lego franchises have given us an opportunity to tap into our team’s incredible depth of talent and diversity to create an exciting piece whilst remaining true to the Lego and Marvel brands,” said Dane Maddams, Executive Vice President of Plastic Wax Studios.  “While we have long been an industry leader in creating ultra-realistic cinematics, it’s exciting for us to focus our teams efforts on delivering quality, fun work for audiences of every demographic.”

Previously, the company catered primarily to console opportunities, yet with the divergence in gaming towards massive multiplayer on-line games (MMO’s) and the explosion of mobile gaming, Plastic Wax Studios is now positioned as a major player for cinematics within the mobile/mmo space and has already aligned itself with industry leading developers such as Perfect World and Kixeye, along with industry heavyweight agencies such as Hammer Creative.

“We aimed to really push technology and art to compelling and cutting edge realism with our recent release of the “Director’s Cut” cinematic for Perfect World’s, NeverWinter MMO,” Says Maddams. “The cinematics were carefully designed to enhance the story in a never seen before narrative and build anticipation for the title to new heights”

The creation of three unique cinematics for Kixeye’s upcoming titles, War Commander, Battle Pirates and VEGA Conflict mark the company’s first venture into mobile entertainment.

“While mobile gaming brings about a unique set of challenges, we have been able to deliver incredibly successful and engaging cinematics on the platform and we expect to continue pushing that envelope further,” commented Maddams.
