Axis is known, to many people, for the amazing animation they completed a year or so ago on the Dead Island trailer, work that broke through to the popular press (LA Times and Variety). The trailer worked on many levels, but fundamentally was a very good storytelling device that connected with its target audience. Both engaging and disturbing, the trailer was a remarkable piece of communication.
