The Darkest Hour – Motion Comic Trailer

15 10 2011

The Darkest Hour digital/motion comic provides some additional exposition to the upcoming live-action film. It’s a science-fiction themed action thriller set in Moscow, that follows five stranded people as they fight to survive a brutal alien attack.

Featuring the collaborative artistic talents of illustrators such as Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night), Tom Fowler, Pia Guerra and many others, ‘The Darkest Hour’ is an prime exemplar of ‘convergence culture’ and transmedia and features comic, motion comic and live-action narratives

The motion comic is typically restricted to lighting and particle effects and simple camera movements. A series of text boxes and sound effects add further depth and atmosphere to the narrative. The addition of an interactive menu system allows the viewer to navigate the narrative and also incorporates a fullscreen feature, which is useful for viewers with smaller resolution settings.
