Freestlye Collective: Fusion Fall Cinematic

I caught a sneak peek of Freestyle Collective’s action-packed cinematic for Cartoon Network’s forthcoming Fusion Fall game a few months ago, and I’ve been waiting for the chance to share it ever since.

The camera work and pacing are full of adrenaline that moves in lock-step with the soundtrack. Like the game itself, the promo is a mix of cuteness and ass-kicking—a tricky balance to master.

There’s also a great sense of place in the spot. Each location feels deep and fully realized.

Thanks to Tyquane Wright for the tip!
