Cutwater SF Hacks Chicago for Watch Dogs Launch Trailer


Agency launches dramatic trailer for Ubisoft's latest video game

Cutwater SF Hacks Chicago for Watch Dogs Launch Trailer

Cutwater SF has launched a new spot for video game Watch Dogs. The :45 spot is set in the Watch Dogs Chicago cityscape, but the storyline and footage is 100% original. The trailer was written, storyboarded, green-screened and directed by Chuck McBride’s creative team at Cutwater, working with Digic Pictures in Hungary to motion capture Noam Jenkins, the star of the game. The trailer follows the games protagonist Aiden Pearce as he hacks Chicago, using trains, traffic lights and bridges as a weapon against his enemies. In addition to the spot, Cutwater also partnered with Ubisoft to build the messaging and positioning for Watch Dogs’ rollout. The agency has a strong history of gaming-related creative, including work for Assassin’s Creed, The Shaun White snowboarding franchise and Rocksmith.
