Ben Hibon’s Take on Fable Legends
UK director Ben Hibon continues his singular quest to inject style and character into a gaming world hell bent on taking itself far too seriously with this launch trailer produced by Axis Animation for Fable Legends running on Xbox One.
Richard Scott, EP at Axis in Glasgow: “The film has a level of stylization to it and we had to find the right balance between how that style influenced things like the character silhouettes and a level of realism to things like the surface shading on objects.
“Animation was another challenge, keyframing was our immediate reaction to the animation approach but timescales meant we’d need a more hybrid approach using motion capture which was almost exaggerated at source to get the performances Ben wanted.”
