When we started working on PS4, the question of the next short film arose. What could we do this time? What new field should we explore? Of course we were going to have a new next-gen graphic engine that would significantly improve the graphic quality. Of course we were going to try to push back the limits of performance capture, a technique that we are beginning to master after one year of intensive shooting for Beyond.
So far this year, we’ve put a lot of focus on BEYOND: Two Souls’ cinematic presentation and powerfully emotional storytelling – we’ve revealed Willem Dafoe as Ellen Page’s co-star, debuted a beautifully cinematic story trailer, and even revealed a full scene from the game at Tribeca Film Festival to show you just how groundbreaking BEYOND: Two Souls aims to be. The “Interactive Drama” genre is a bit of a unique concept though, and one of the consistent questions we’ve received from those of you who missed out on experiencing Heavy Rain is: “BEYOND looks like it has a fantastic story, but how does it play?!”
Greetings! Yesterday was my first time at San Diego Comic-Con and I was amazed at the people I saw! What costumes! It’s great to see so many people embracing their passion.
After such an amazing E3, I was lucky enough to come here to speak to some incredible supporters of the game in a panel hosted by IGN’s Greg Miller. Joining me was the lovely and talented Ellen Page, who we are very lucky to have playing BEYOND‘s main character, Jodie Holmes. We had a great discussion about how we are combining the latest in performance capture technology and amazing acting talent in the hopes of creating a truly unique and emotional experience for all of you to enjoy. We were also happy to reveal additional talented cast members, Kadeem Hardison and Eric Winter, experienced actors who you may have seen both on TV and film.
