“Horizon 2” Book Trailer

Concept, design and animation work for a Scholastic book trailer.

The trailer for the second book in the Horizon series, references our original trailer while updating it for the new story. While the first book was set in a lush jungle, the second explores a forbidding red desert, so we moved into sandy 3D landscapes and desert images with a dramatic sandstorm. We brought back the “heat vision” from the first trailer that also figures into the cover art, and added epic movie trailer style 3D text for a cinematic feel. Once again, we used Adobe’s Fuse to create a 3D model for the new animated character based on the cover photo, and worked with mocap from Mixamo for the action.
