Creating a Deeper Emotional Connection: The Cinematography of 'God of War'


This session is for all the lovers of cinematics. It will cover the lessons and techniques learned during the development of 'God of War' that allowed the Santa Monica Studio team to achieve deeper emotional tones within the game experience, including the no-cut camera design. This session will cover thought approaches, technical applications and tools that aided in this process. It will discuss film-making approaches vs. cinematic creation and how 'God of War' leveraged the strength of both to execute on a consistent and clear visual game experience, from pre-pro to shooting on set. Doing so even with a limited "no-cuts" vocabulary.
