Nolan: I think what attracts Drake to Elena the most is, just, the fact that she's compassionate... Emily: (nods) Nolan: ...she's intelligent... Emily: (nods) Nolan: ...she's, um—we're talking about Elena. Emily: Yeah! I get it. Nolan: So just... relax. Just cool the jets.
During the production of Drake's Deception, Nolan North put together a book to showcase the sheer amount of skill and effort that goes into a game series like Uncharted. It's full of insights into the industry... and it's really freakin' hilarious. From the notes on the motion capture for the horseback scenes:
During one of the mocap sessions we had to capture me riding the horse as if in a full gallop. This required me to bounce up and down in the saddle like an idiot for a full minute. It was one of the most ridiculous things anyone had ever seen. A grown man in a skin tight suit bopping along on an imaginary horse. Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse, the stage was suddenly filled with the "My Little Pony" theme song blaring from the speakers.
Troy Baker: You do know that you're not actually Nathan Drake— Nolan North: You shut your mouth. You shut it. Troy: It's a character. Nolan: I will cut you, I will open you up, and bleed you out. Troy:[beat] Why is it always violence with you? Nolan: Because it has to be.
A Vine produced by Nolan North and Troy Baker has Nolan North trying to pick Troy Baker's pocket. The following ensues:
Troy: Hey, were you trying to steal my wallet?
Nolan: I guess that's...A Thief's End!(shot of both of them laughing obnoxiously)
