“Leap into History” with Assassin’s Creed 15th Anniversary Trailer

In a massive merger of live-action and VFX, Stink director Felix Brady teams with post houses Platige and UPP to condense 2000 years of history into 80 seconds and mark the 15th anniversary of Ubisoft’s mega franchise Assassin’s Creed.

Produced thru DDB Paris, the spot features cinematography by Swedish DOP Erik Henriksson and a bespoke soundtrack by Norwegian singer, songwriter, and producer Aurora.

Yassine Ouadah Tsabet and Nicolas Denis, art directors at DDB Paris: “With so many games and stories to reference, we put a lot of effort into transitions to make the film look like one seamless odyssey.

“The anniversary was a unique opportunity to celebrate the spirit of the franchise, pushing it a bit further to the status of pop culture essential. And to federate everyone, from the hardcore gamer to the one who only heard about a guy with a hood.

“The spot is built around the two fundamentals that define the series: an immersion into rich and accurate historical worlds; and the feeling of complete freedom it gives the player.”
