How can you create a detailed, real-world space that conveys an actual place in time whilst tailoring it to convey a fictional alternative history? 

During our digital event SPOV, a Keywords studio, describe the lessons learned and the methods used on their journey to provide cinematics for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

Using their personal history with the franchise and their creative design process, they discuss the challenges of maintaining continuity, blending cultural references with historical research and how they sought to tell the story of our protagonists in a meaningful and engaging way.  

During our talk, you will hear from our SPOV talents, Jasmine Christmas, Managing Director, Agnes Kasilovska, Creative Director and Sam Thompson, Graphic Designer.

Why You Should Attend

You will learn how SPOV maintained visual continuity over the course of the project and with a fluctuating team size (and a pandemic) and also the importance of the creative research phase and how to use it to align artists’ work throughout. 

Key take-aways

  • Learn how to ground a fictional narrative using real historical figures and events.  
  • See the process behind creating a global perspective by exploring our personal histories of the era.  
  • Understand the delivery mechanisms to create an authentic sense of the period and how they influence thinking behind visuals.

Agnes Kasilovska is a London-based Creative Director with a background in photography and media arts. She had a passion for interactive media and games that encouraged her to move from Lithuania and seek new challenges.

She found like-minded people at SPOV, who shared her passion for cinematography, storytelling and video games and has worked there since 2015. She is always seeking new ways of expression and has been submerged in her current passion for VR sculpting and racoons.
