About this video
SaintX levitates in a trance that places him outside the world of men, close to the heaven. Beautiful skies is an invitation to a journey through vast expanses. To tell this story, we used Unreal Engine 5, which allows to design and navigate in real time in huge and detailed environments thanks to megascans meshes and Nanite. We designed a system to handle SaintX with a controller, which allowed us to animate it organically. We used UDS to work on the weather conditions and the lighting, always keeping in mind we had to find the right balance between realism, dreamlike vision and contained deadlines, in order to stay within the project specifications. The character of Saint X himself was created using character creator, his clothes were designed and simulated with marvelous designer, and textured with Substance Designer. Finally, the editing was done with Davinci Resolve.
