LittleBigPlanet 2 Character Videos

January 2011 Project: LittleBigPlanet 2Employer: Media Molecule

LittleBigPlanet 2 had more characters involved in it’s story than the previous game had done, so Media Molecule decided that they wanted to promote the characters independently in addition to the game promos. This lead to me making a series of edits in varying styles.

Victoria was one of the main characters in LittleBigPlanet 2.  She was a bit of a mad inventor ‘type’ and lived in a world of steam punk and cake.

Clive was a down trodden character who dreamed of entering the dizzy heights of middle management. He loves bureaucracy and going to work but hates the weekends because having the freedom to do anything you want is a scary prospect to him. We decided to create a film about the week in the life of Clive because we felt we should explain to other people that life needn’t be this dull. Mike Pang and I created the footage in game and then I edited the film.

Avalon was an egotistical character who thrived off the glory achieved by others. We decided the best way to represent him would be for him to have his own music video and theme tune. Audio Designer Kenny Young from Media Molecule made the theme tune, Mike Pang and I storyboarded and built the sets in game and created the in-game animations, and then I edited the final footage together into the music video.
