Plastic Wax is a Sydney based animation studio that creates in-game cinematics and pre-rendered trailers for AAA game titles. Known for their work on game franchises and IP’s such as Warhammer 40,000, Saints Row, Darksiders, Civilisation and DC comics Plastic Wax competes with studios such as Blur, DIGIC and Platige Image (among others) to create some of the best trailers in the industry.
