It was revealed earlier today that Australian cinematic studio Plastic Wax a studio that’s worked on plenty of other gaming brands, were responsible for the cutscenes during the course of Saints Row IV’s single player campaign.
Plastic Wax EVP Dane Maddams explains;
“Plastic Wax was fortunate enough to work with the always incredibly talented Volition and Deep Silver teams, we (Plastic Wax) handled full body and hand-keyed animation for 46 minutes of cutscene material, the project took around seven months to complete. Being tied so closely to the content we had an early sneak peek at the game prior to release, and believe me, the fans are in for an incredible ride.”
Volition’s Animation Director Zach Lowery adds,
“Working with the talented team at Plastic Wax on Saints Row IV was a true pleasure. We tried hard to make sure that there wasn’t a feeling of separation and at the end of the day, it truly felt like Plastic Wax was a natural extension of our internal team.”
“The final product speaks for itself, and I’m very proud of what our teams accomplished together.”
Saints Row IV has also sold more than a million units since its release in its first week. Let’s see if that number hits 2 million when it’s finally released in Australia this week.
