Virtual Production - Wolf Castle Scene


This is a scene that I made for an untitled video show in Unreal Engine. The clip on the right is rendered vertically to suit the requirement that the audiences will be viewing the film on their phones.

The moon shader comes from a custom-made material blueprint, trees and water puddles are from Quxiel Bridge Library, and the castle and the wolf animation are sourced from UE Marketplace.

This is an ongoing project

Other Practices

Here are some other clips I rendered using multiple content creation tools that serve as practices for my virtual production skills.

The layout, composition, and animations of these scene were built in Cinema 4D. Material, lighting, and environment were created in Unreal. Cloth simulation was made using Marvelous Designer. Color grading and final export were done in After Effects.
