Written and Directed by Pendulum owners, Mike McCormick & Rob Taylor, THQ/Paradigm’s Stuntman2: Ignition required four 2min cinematic movie trailers to act as reward sequences for each level. The trailers, which drew inspiration from and parodied the superhero ("Night Avenger"), action ("Strike Force Omega"), spy ("Never Kill Me Again"), and comedy ("Whoopin' n Hollerin'") genres, were fully concepted, storyboarded, animated and composited by Pendulum. The studio was also responsible for full sound design and original musical scores. Full performance motion-capture was shot & recorded at House of Moves. The cinematics also took advantage of Pendulum’s proprietary facial animation software, AlterEgo , to achieve the dramatic realism desired.
