“Sky: Children of the Light” Nintendo Switch Launch Promo by Evan Viera and Illusorium

In a welcome break from the snark and one-note violence of many game films, LA director Evan Viera and the crew at Illusorium Studios in Madrid deliver a tranquil and panoramic teaser for the Switch release of Sky: Children of Light.

Evan Viera: “Last winter, thatgamecompany reached out about directing and producing a short film for their widely successful open-world social adventure game Sky: Children of Light.

“They were months away from launching a Nintendo Switch version and wanted to accompany the release with a promotional video that hinted at the game’s mysterious backstory.

“The goal was the introduce a side of the game most players don’t see: the civilization that lived hundreds of years before the start of the game.

“This was meant to be both a gift to the lore-obsessed fans but also to share some of the deep mythology and world-building that the game world is built on and rarely gets much exposition.

“Once the project was awarded I brought onboard my longtime writing partners Charley Pope and Liz Ellis to explore the game’s backstory and then my friends at Illusorium Studio to produce the teaser. The Illusorium team was responsible for the entire production and visual development of the project.”
