Beyond good and evil 2 has been announced during last E3 at Los Angeles with a beautiful trailer made by Unit image and directed by Ubisoft Montpellier team.
I have been involded to create and shape the sound design of this footage, a great challenge with high expectation from all the team.
There is the result after weeks of recording, sound design and mix:
One of the biggest piece has been to create a retro sci-fi design for the vehicles sounds, somewhere between dirty thermic engine and futuristic ship. Considering the sustained action, from the beginning of the editing process, I was continuously keeping in mind to preserve a good dynamic and put the focus on one element at the time.
I am very happy of the final result, mostly due to a great collaboration between all the people involved on it.
I finished the year with a very interesting project, the in game cut-scenes for the DLC of Assassin’s creed Unity.
I spent a month to edit and mix several minutes of cinematic for this new chapter, dead king. It has just been released this month, have fun !

Some critics of the press:
Gamespot.com: These natural processes are accompanied by rich sound effects that punctuate your every action. Grinding and sucking noises give your substance-gathering efforts some weight, while an outburst of birds cawing and flapping signals that disaster is imminent. If you toggle your view in closer to the action, you can hear fire crackling; villagers singing; and the creaking, burbling flow of lava. The sights and sounds make the world of From Dust look lively, and the interplay between substances and natural laws make it feel alive.
jeuxvideo.fr: Very elaborate, the soundtrack of From Dust fit beautifully with the game world. Smothered by the deafening roar of a volcanic eruption or tidal wave, the cries of men, delivered in a dialect unknown to become almost touching. Too bad the lovely musical themes tend to be repeated too much.
