Digital Domain and Mothership on Medal of Honor

Digital Domain, 6 years, 1 month ago

Electronic Arts taps DD and Mothership for Linkin Park video and in-game content for Medal of Honor Warfighter

Digital Domain and Mothership on Medal of Honor

 

Digital Domain and its commercial production company Mothership have produced the emotional new music video from Linkin Park, “Castle of Glass”, created for the launch of Electronic Arts’ Medal of Honor Warfighter game. The piece features live action, gameplay, cinematics and sophisticated CG video. The game is released on October 23.
 

Teams at Mothership and Digital Domain were deeply involved in production of cinematics and content for the Medal of Honor Warfightergame itself when EA asked them to partner and produce Linkin Park’s video, working with Directors Drew Stauffer and Jerry O’Flaherty.
 
True to the Medal of Honor philosophy, “Castle of Glass” highlights the emotional realities soldiers and their families face far from the battlefield. Stauffer and O’Flaherty developed the concept around the all-too-familiar story of a child learning from a military officer that his father has been killed in battle. While his life is torn apart, the military community surrounds and supports him through the overwhelming process of healing and rebuilding. 
 
Mothership and Digital Domain worked with the directors to shoot live action dramatic sequences and Linkin Park performing against green screen. Digital Domain created ‘the void,’ an otherworldly place representing the chaotic state of the child’s mind, complete with violent storms that rain shattered glass. They also created a completely computer-generated version of the live-action living room shot for the piece, which cracks and shatters around Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda as the emotional core of the story breaks loose. Gameplay action was captured and virtual humans in the cinematics were created by Digital Domain and Mothership in the company’s in-house virtual production studio.
