Brain Zoo Studios (www.brainzoostudios.com), a leading character animation and effects studio, announced today that they have been nominated for a Golden Trailer Award for their work on the Darkwatch: Curse of the West trailer. The Golden Trailer Awards honor excellence in the art of trailers for feature film, television, animation, and this year will extend awards to honor the best in video game trailers. The 6th Annual Golden Trailer Awards Show takes place May 26th, 2005, at the Orpheum Theatre located at 842 South Broadway in LA. Tickets are available by calling 212-696-9770 or ordering online at ticketmaster.com.
The trailer was created for High Moon Studios, the developer of the upcoming and highly anticipated game. The animation, created specifically for the trailer by Brain Zoo, features a Matrix-style fight scene between a legion of zombies and the games main character, Jericho. The story is set in an old-west setting, complete with vampires, graveyards and zombies.
?The quality of video game animation continues to increase, and we are proud to be among the very first that pushed this category through to a spotlight usually reserved for film and television, stated Mohammad Davoudian, president and CEO of Brain Zoo Studios. ?That in itself is a major accomplishment.
?We created this trailer from the ground up in terms of animation, continued Davoudian. ?We did not take pre-existing footage and edit it together like a standard film or television trailer. Massive amounts of planning and production were put into the project to make it as compelling as possible and we are proud to be recognized for the work we have accomplished.
