PS4 AND ATLUS GAMES // DRAGON’S CROWN PRO - DATING AD

In collaboration with the SECRET POWERS we created a cinematic trailer that spoofed cliched dating site commercials while simultaneously bringing the world of DRAGON’S CROWN PRO to life.

After great collaborations on the SINCLAIR: EXTRAORDINARY campaign and FULLER HOUSE spot, I was brought on by the creative team at Secret Powers to help realize a humorous, but thrilling spot for PS4’s DRAGON’S CROWN PRO title. With a stellar concept already in mind, I fleshed out the script with Brian Campbell and Jay Allen. We sought to maximize the laughs and contrast our “game world” with the dating world as much as possible. In order to really push the “game world” as far as we could, we decided to shoot on location at Longhorn Caverns outside of Austin, TX. The physical location was something that inspired the entire crew and gave both the corn-ball dating scenes and cinematic game sequences a greater sense of cohesion. Kris Taylor and the effects wizards at Secret Powers were a blast to work with and really gave our environments and characters a zest that I adore.
