It benefits many film studios to adapt games into films, which becomes more and more popular now. The reasons why these studios do this are not only because of the huge numbers of audiences, but also the attractiveness of these games’ plots to audiences. The situation not only benefits the producers and publishers, but also benefits animation rendering service providers or vray render farm a lot as well.
If you will be asked to list one film, which is adapted from game, I guess the Resident Evil may the first one occurs to most of you. As one of the films adapted from games, the resident evil is unquestionably successful no matter in the area of games or films. Resident evil is a zombie disaster film with great sci-fi elements, whose audiences are not only from the game but also itself is attractive to many people. However, not each game can gain satisfactory effects when it is adapted into a film since it is risky in doing so. It not only can be favored by their players, but also can continually expand the chain for their brands once these games are successfully adapted into films. Otherwise, it would cause side effects just like the other film Super Mario Bros of Nintendo 20 years ago. It depends on the producers whether it is good or harm for adapting games into films or not as adaption is a double-edged sword. Therefore, in order to hasten after benefit and avoid damage in the course of producing, many producers try a lot of methods to achieve the adaption, and one of them is the expression form of films.
The expression form of Resident Evil is the combination of live performance and CG production, whose success is benefit from current development of visual effects production, and sci-fi films are always beloved by audiences. Another form is animation. For instance, after the twenty-fifth birthday, the classic game entitled The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass will be adapted into animation. I guess many of you are familiar with this game, which is one of the best classic action and adventure games and Zelda is the name of royal female in this game. This game combines action, adventure, puzzling, role-playing and a little of platform jumping, diving and racing as well. There is no doubt that it is very tough to adapt this game with strong empathetic into film. However, no matter how tough it is, animation has its own positive sides as it not only can increase audiences, but also can present the games with the nearest expression forms to the games themselves. Hence, the adaption of games into films provides the opportunity for the development of rendering farm and is greatly supportive in the aspect of technology of animation production firms.
