The People Making the Trailers That Make You Go "Whoah"

Whenever somebody sees a fancy cinematic trailer or intro sequence to a game these days, if they don't just assume it's the work of the game's developers, they assume it's the work of Blur Studios.

But Blur isn't the only team in the field. Another outfit is Plastic Wax, who are based in Sydney, Australia.


Plastic Wax make digital content for both video games and movies, and work on not only trailers and in-game cinematics but some static print work as well.

Some games you may have played that feature Plastic Wax's work include Borderlands, Mafia II, Fallout: New Vegas, Saints Row The Third, BioShock and Civ V's glorious Gods & Kings intro. They also did the fabulous intro to Dawn of War II.


More recently, they did every pre-rendered cutscene (and five fancy trailers) for Darksiders II, while Plastic Wax will also be making the intro to the upcoming Epic Mickey 2.

You can see a selection of their recent stuff in the video above, and more of the studio's work at their company site.
