Behold the Apex Legends “Battle Charge Launch Trailer”

Mill+ directors Lisha Tan and David Lawson just unleashed this spectacular season 2 trailer for Respawn’s battle royale shooter Apex Legends, the follow up to their breakout launch trailer back in February 2019.

Lisha Tan: “We took what we learnt from the previous creative and thought about how we could elevate our approach, specifically on the shoot.

“We came up with ways to make the performance capture more realistic, in particular, the combat scenes. We had our actors and stunt performers fire using blanks, which amped up the intensity of the performances from the actors and it translated seamlessly to the screen.”

David Lawson: “In the first trailer the goal was to create an understanding of the character’s personalities, this time around it was about teasing out a new character whilst, as importantly, explaining the development of the map.”
