Last month, we were in­vited to The One Academy to take part in an ex­hi­bi­tion by leg­endary video game com­pany, Ubisoft.

More specif­i­cally, the ex­hi­bi­tion was or­ga­nized by Ubisoft Sin­ga­pore, who has been look­ing for a way to give Malaysian graph­ics artists and de­sign­ers a chance to work with them. The One Academy was do­ing more than just play­ing host to the French-based com­pany (the com­pany’s French by ori­gin, but has their main of­fice in Mon­treal, Canada).

Aside from show­cas­ing some spec­tac­u­lar and gor­geous art­work from Ubisoft’s two lat­est ti­tles, As­sas­sin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Ghost Re­con On­line, the ex­hi­bi­tion was also a way of en­tic­ing young and up­com­ing graph­ics de­sign­ers to try for a po­si­tion within the com­pany it­self.

“The ex­hi­bi­tion is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity for the Malaysian pub­lic to get an in­sight into the great work per­formed by our stu­dio’s artis­tic teams: from con­cept art to videos, vis­i­tors will be able to see the artis­tic process that guides the cre­ation of a video game,” said Olivier de Ro­tal­ier, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Ubisoft Sin­ga­pore.

The ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tured over 40 dif­fer­ent pieces of art­work, with the ma­jor­ity of these art pieces stem­ming from As­sas­sin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, which in­clude a sto­ry­board for the trailer that first ap­peared dur­ing E3 2013. The Ghost Re­con On­line art­work fo­cused more on a con­cept of the Sab­bath which, when di­rectly trans­lated, means a holy day or rest day, and fea­tures heav­ily on the Ghost oper­a­tors when­ever they were not in ac­tive com­bat.

was dis­played at the ex­hi­bi­tion.
