Dune Awakening Trailer VFX Breakdown

Goodbye Kansas showed how it worked with visual effects.

Visual effects and animation studio Goodbye Kansas shared a VFX breakdown of the teaser trailer for Funcom’s game Dune: Awakening, based on the Legendary Pictures' feature film adaptation and the sci-fi books by Frank Herbert.

You can see the concept art, storyboards, and motion capture that were used for the teaser. It was the first game trailer directed by Simon Stålenhag.

"The collaboration with Goodbye Kansas Studios and Funcom to create this trailer was an incredible opportunity for me to explore a tiny sliver of the legendary Dune universe," he said. "I really enjoy working with Goodbye Kansas Studios since they immediately understand what I’m looking for even though my ideas might seem strange at times. Every part of this project was a delight for me – from concepts, mocap to compositing, and to work on something as deep and rich as the Dune universe was nothing short of an honor and privilege."

Goodbye Kansas was founded by Peter Levin, who envisioned Goodbye Kansas as a "'Universe for Artists' – an inspired, inclusive home for the very best in the industry, rooted in a company culture fuelled by passion and a will to push the limits of what’s technologically possible."

It has worked on trailers for Redfall, Skull and Bones, The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners – Retribution, the Halo TV series, and more.
