Behind the Scenes on Overwatch “Trace & Bake” Stop Motion

In May 2016 Blizzard launched a team-based multiplayer first-person shooter called Overwatch with a series of groundbreaking CG trailers. Now, on the game’s second anniversary, Tracer and Reaper get the stop motion treatment.

Co-director Justin Rasch: “There’s a special magic you have as a child. And the only place I’ve been able to really apply it is stop motion.”
