When Sleeping Dogs got a live action teaser trailer, I got a bit excited. I’m a massive fan of Hong Kong action cinema and the team behind the teaser for Square Enix’s undercover cop action drama nailed the look and feel of a kung fu gunplay movie perfectly.
That team was Goldtooth Creative, who shot the live action trailer in Vancouver and Hong Kong. Now they’ve released a behind the scenes look at all the effort that went into it. With live action and “mood” trailers becoming ever more popular – Halo Reach and Dead Island being two other prime examples – it’s fascinating to see the work that goes into them.
Sleeping Dogs is due for release this August on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
