Displaying indestructibility, perseverance, and explosions of epic proportions, the new World of Tanks trailer gives a two minute glimpse at the CG spectacle the game holds. With color correction by Milton Adamou of In a Place Post, the trailer’s vibrant colors add to the rising intensity of the tanks charging through strong blizzards, hot desert sands, and tattered cities.
Rapidly reaching each destination with fervor, the tanks are unafraid to collide with nature or one of their own along the way. The pristine, bright blue of the sky in the desert scenes helps give the game trailer the ultimate realistic feel; one can only imagine how powerful the game will be.

“The World Of Tanks was an interesting project for me as it was a return to pure CGI,” explains In A Place Post Colorist Milton Adamou. “Using 'traditional' color timing techniques I focused on separating the tanks from the scorching deserts and the crumbling streets of Berlin, in addition to employing compositing tools and sharpening plugins to really bring these images to life, giving them an almost documentary-like quality.” To read more on the technical aspects of this job, please visit Milton Adamou’s blog at:
