OPENING CINEMATIC | VFX

For Destiny’s The Dark Below opening cinematic, Bungie wanted to establish the antagonist Crota, his ability to use “the darkness,” and that the downloadable content took place on the depths of the Moon. For Crota’s design, Bungie supplied low-res characters, which Prologue used as a base model and applied high-resolution details for the final design. His darkness ability was shown his sword connecting with a runic symbol as hundreds of green eyes appear from the darkness. Finally, a physical camera reverse descending into the pits establishes the setting, giving meaning to the title “The Dark Below.”
