That's All, Folks

by Syd Briscoe

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint: “Big Bad Wolves” - 3 mins 47s

This series of short films for 'Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint' (say that five times fast) blends old and new animation techniques for a unique take on the military shooter genre. Each short calls attention to a different feature of the game, and uses some unconventional imagery to highlight the action.

With a storybook-style script accompanying enemy combatants replaced with cartoon wolves, bullets swapped out for sticky darts, and knives covered up by plungers, the mixture of childish whimsy and violence creates a perversely compelling piece of work. Fans may find a lot less slapstick in the game itself, but directors Stevie Gee and Essy May hint at an interesting sandbox for them to play in.
