Tomb Raider 20th Anniversary Celebrations at PLAY Expo

We co-organised and coordinated the largest Tomb Raider 20th Anniversary Celebrations:

Trip to E3

In 2015 Microsoft and Crystal Dynamics sponsored our trip to Los Angeles and we produced a high-quality content about the show.

Baba Yaga

We produced a short animated film about the myth behind Baba Yaga. The video was nationally nominated for a Royal Television Society Award and won Community Award for the Best Video Project.[/TS_VCSC_Icon_Wall_Item][/TS_VCSC_Icon_Wall_Container]

ASH KAPRIELOV

A huge gamer and Tomb Raider fanatic, Ash’s passion for the latter started with Tomb Raider Chronicles in 2000. He then finished every previous Tomb Raider game within 3 years just in time to play then newly released the Angel of Darkness.

Tomb Raider hugely changed his life which involved meeting amazing friends worldwide (also visiting them and hosting them) and moving to the UK.

Let alone that Ash learned 3DS Max, Photoshop and other useful software just because he wanted to create renders with Lara like guys at Core did.

In early 2000s Ash started making renders in 3DS max and people seemed to like those (that was before XNA Lara which obviously made anyone capable of creating a render these days).

Ash loves the original Core Design’s version of the game though he does find the latest (2013) reboot enjoyable 🙂 You can read about the impact that Tomb Raider franchise had on his life in this blog post.
