2-Minute Animation | Game Trailer

The Forest


Here is my 2-minute animation submission for motion graphics and animation. I decided to create a game trailer for a 2d platformer game called ‘The Forest’ where to objective is to survive. However, despite seemingly being a quiet game, it can quickly turn sinister at night. I used Stranger Things as inspiration for the intro to my game trailer where the litters form up to create the title. I also stuck with the Synth-wave music slowed down to create a mystical and eerie feel to the trailer. I used a range of different techniques in my animation including text and shape manipulation, camera movement, and experimentation with in-built After Effects effects to create the effect of rain and smoke. The sound I used were found online and are credited below:
