WOW. This. Was. Mega 🤯 I had the ultimate opportunity to lead a world class team to craft this amazing backstory sequence for Sonic The Hedgehog 2. 

Our mission was to bring the script to life with a treatment that emitted a heavy, dramatic and historic feeling energy. We were inspired by the carvings seen in the cave, and they became our launchpad for creating an epic dimension where everything is carved out of stone.

I couldn't be more stoked with our incredible S Tier result, all made possible with our immensely talented group of producers and artists 🤩
