Inside the Last of Us, Sony Creator to Creator

Inside the Last of Us, Sony Creator to Creator ...

The Last of Us program on HBO required the show's top-tier writers to tackle the challenging task of creating video games and TV series.

The positive reception so far has been overwhelming, and I'm excited to introduce the latest chapter in Sony's Creator to Creator series for the Last of Us. This two-part series features the creators and cast reflecting on their time working on the games and show.

  • Neil Druckmann, Executive Producer / Co-President at Naughty Dog
  • Craig Mazin, Executive Producer
  • Pedro Pascal (Joel)
  • Bella Ramsey (Ellie)
  • myself, Asad Qizilbash, Head of PlayStation Productions at SIE

The creators discuss the possibility and challenge of adapting The Last of Us for HBO. Bella discusses the uniqueness of their performance of Ellie as an organic hybrid of themselves and the iconic character. Pedro discusses on-set fans blast freezing air to simulate a storm. Craig discusses the benefit of having detail-oriented players on the production crew.

The Last of Us crew for taking the time to document their incredible creative journey. Enjoy and thanks for reading. Part two will be released in the near future.

HBO Sundays at 6pm PT are the first episodes of The Last of Us to air. Those who want to see Joel and Ellie's journey may play The Last of Us Part I, which is now available on PS5 and will be available on PC February 28.
