The in-game and cut-scene animations for Saints Row IV were largely handled by Australian animation powerhouse Plastic Wax.
“Plastic Wax was fortunate enough to work with the always incredibly talented Volition and Deep Silver teams,” said Plastic Wax EVP Dane Maddams. “We handled full body and hand-keyed animation for 46 minutes of cutscene material, the project took around seven months to complete.”
“Working with the talented team at Plastic Wax on Saints Row IV was a true pleasure,” added Volition Animation Director Zach Lowery. “We tried hard to make sure that there wasn’t a feeling of separation and at the end of the day, it truly felt like Plastic Wax was a natural extension of our internal team.”
Maddams concluded: “Being tied so closely to the content, we had an early sneak peek at the game prior to release, and believe me, the fans are in for an incredible ride.”
Plastic Wax has been responsible for animations and cut scenes from such franchises as Bioshock, Transformers, Fallout, Civilization V and Neverwinter.
