“Contraband” is an upcoming game from Avalanche Studios, a co-op smuggler’s paradise set in the fictional world of 1970s Bayan.
We were delighter to produce this cinematic teaser trailer, in close collaboration with Avalanche and Microsoft. The trailer was conceived as a frozen moment tracking shot, a tantalizing look into the world of “Contraband”, with vibes of the 70s and a taste of the adventures waiting ahead.
The trailer was released at the annual Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase on June 13th 2021.

This is how we made it!

We don’t make dreams come true.

We make them real. And if you like what you’ve seen us do for others, imagine what we could do for you. Because what we’ve done is only the starting point. We are constantly reinventing our expertise and using it in previously unknown ways, blurring the edges between what’s real and what’s possible. All you have to do is watch, because we’re not just aiming for the rainbow – we want to go beyond. Contact us
