Westwood Studios - The Game Awards Tribute

Client: BlinkWorks Media

Let’s be honest, most of us at Handcraft spent a considerable amount of time playing video games in our past, which is why it was more than a pleasure to work on a piece for Westwood Studios. Our friends at Blinkworks (creators of Indie Game: The Movie) brought us to Las Vegas and San Francisco to be the director of photography for this project, which honours the history of a company that revolutionized the video game world. Westwood Studios is the team behind classics like Dune II and the Command And Conquer series. The ‘real time strategy’ genre they created is responsible for inspiring the immensely popular games of today like Starcraft, World Of Warcraft, and DOTA. This video was produced for The Game Awards Show where Westwood Studios accepted the award for Industry Icon 2015.

Watch the video in context of The Game Awards 2015 - Industry Icon Award presentation on YouTube.
