For the launch of Gangs of Sherwood, a free and explosive interpretation of Robin Hood's tale, Nacon wanted the game's narrator to present the story like a Disney movie. We took the brief literally!
As we wanted to focus on the game narrator Alan-a-Dale to introduce the game, we recommended doing it like in a real Disney movie: bringing this character to life on screen so that he could express himself in song to the audience. The result was a real musical and singing sequence, with original composition, lyrics and costumes created just for the occasion!
Mark Irons, the voice of Alan-a-Dale in the game, has reunited with his character to embody him in a singing performance. So our narrator has the same voice in both the film and the game.
Our creative expertise and solid processes benefited every stage of the project: idea, storyboard, lyrics, music, official costume, editing, motion design and post-production. In close collaboration with Nacon, who took care of the casting, with the film's actor acting as the real double of the in-game character.
