CD Projekt RED - New Blog
CD Projekt Red has launched a new studio blog with the following aims:
The goal of the cdpred.com blog is to inform about the studio and its products by a series of “making of” articles, inside materials and fun facts.
The first article describes the creation of a cinematic, titled "52 and a half":
In Poland it’s hard to find someone, who doesn’t know Geralt of Rivia, a witcher, the main protagonist of Andrzej Sapkowski’s novels and our game. Outside of Poland not so many people know Geralt. While working on the 360 version we thought it’s a good idea to show the White Wolf to others in a short clip made with the REDengine.
A good idea is like the Spanish inquisition – nobody expects them. The spark to make, what later became “52 and a half”, kindled us quite late in the production process, so we had little time to produce a film, which carried enough information. There were a lot of thoughts how to give as much details about the witcher’s abilities having a very tight deadline. What we finally agreed on was a clip with the witcher preparing for combat with an off-screen commentary.
