Assassin's Creed Concept Art (for fan film) by Eshwin Dhir
When Hollywood stuntman and action choreographer Matthew Lorenceau (Iron Man 2, District 13: Ultimatum) approached me for a collaboration on an Assassin's Creed fan film, I was stoked. Following a screening of his first Assassin's Creed film (which was included with the SE of the first Assassin's Creed game), the deal was cinched with our mutual fandom for the franchise, and love of all things French Canadian.
The film will take place in the north of Spain following the disintegration of the Muslim Calif on the borders between Christendom and Muslim territories, and will follow the trials of a lesser known, nomadic assassin who came in between Altair and Ezio, possibly on a mission to spread the Assassin's Creed to Europe.
For the design I looked at my Altair and Ezio action figures (didn't I say I was a fanboy?) and kind of mish-mashed different elements, and made minor adjustments in pattern and decor to give a distinctly North African flavor (as this assassin came to Spain through that region).
Update: Go here for the most recent concept art for the short film.
