Neill Blomkamp made a short film in Unity and it looks fantastic

Neill Blomkamp made a short film in Unity and it looks fantastic”

It remains to be seen whether a video-game powered by the Unity Engine will be able to match these visuals.

"Ever since I started making films I've dreamed of a virtual sandbox that would let me build, shoot and edit photorealistic worlds all in one place".

The first Adam short film was produced by Veselin Efremov and the Unity demo team to demonstrate how real-time rendering was possible in the Unity engine. "The fact that we could achieve near photorealistic visuals at half of average time of our production cycles is astounding". I don't think six more minutes is going to be enough, but I sure do want to know how Neddalus reacts to Adam and and The Mirror's revelation of his past life. The second film, 'ADAM: "The Prophet", will release sometime before the end of 2017.

The Mirror will premiere during the live stream of the Unite Austin 2017 Keynote, which begins at 4 p.m. PT on October 3, and will be available on the OATS YouTube channel shortly after. The two new stories will be based on the mythology revolving the first Webby Award-winning short film ADAM. Check out their short film Rakka from earlier this year. A cloaked, masked figure known as the Mirror appears with a clairvoyant ability to uncover the past of those whom she meets, and reveals to Adam that he is a convicted violent criminal. The cliffhanger is sure to be addressed in Adam: The Prophet when it releases later this year.

Unity 2017.2 is out today.

"We foresaw the evolution of the game engine in terms of how quality would bring it to a level where it could be used in film", Vice President of research labs at Unity, Sylvio Drouin said in an interview. As the former writer and director of District 9, Blomkamp was immediately intrigued by the film. We highly recommend visiting that site if you're at all interested in the technical side of computer-generated effects, as it goes into great detail on the creation of the ADAM series.
