I Will Film a Movie Using a Game Engine!

published on July 20, 2020

Well what an interesting month to have a newborn to say the least now I was planning on taking about a month off for paternity leave and that started about a week before the whole self quarantine thing so it's kind of good to see everyone joining in in the spirit things

Are going well over here what is it it's 1:30 in the morning and my night shift has begun oh sorry I totally forgot the introductions meet little baby Gwen the latest addition to the quorum family she's doing well

What do you do with all your time at home well that was a question that I had already figured out about a week before the self quarantine started each gives handful so whenever I'm not trying to catch a few extra hours of sleep I'm in

Here and our little home office plugging away and a couple new exciting things that I'm really really really amped about I have been finishing a new album that's going to be coming out very shortly

And playing this 8-string guitar as well recently but something a little more relevant to what you guys see on this channel is I've been learning unity and unreal on a much deeper level not necessarily for game development but for

Virtual production development now if you saw in that visual effects artists react episode about blue Mandalorian you're all really really excited about some of the techniques they used to capture life on stage in this scene all

Of the background you're seeing is not real it is a real-time rendered image on a LED screen so inspiring that look literally right now I'm working on a mini version of this that will be able to have in our own studio so on the

Unity side of things we're working with Josh Davies over FX home to develop a camera calibration plugin that allows us to use real-world photos just like you see here and basically have a real-time rendered environment that's free tracked

To this camera and that's gonna be really cool it's very similar to this setup they used on the Mandalorian on the unreal side of things I am just diving right in while I'm not as familiar with unreal it is it is so

Powerful it is so cool and easy to learn and so I've really been enjoying messing around with that why would you want to turn to like a video game engine to start making videos with it's a good question because you know you might

Think oh well there's kind of a drop in quality and since the rendering isn't as high quality but the thing is is there's this level of unprecedented freedom that is very very alluring because normally work making visual effects and putting

Them into a live footage but right now this is a situation what we're gonna be taking live footage and putting it into a visual effects so to speak or act the whole shot it's gonna be CG you know if we really want to set it up right we can

Do a thing where you knew your actor mocap suit you have a CG environment you maybe have like a buy of track camera or a virtual camera trick it starts to really mimic just a normal set at that point where you're just recording takes

And if you want you can screen capture your computer and the moment your take is done you have footage now to edit with because it's all real time yeah it's it's a really cool situation and it's really exciting now we have an

Opportunity to tell stories that would otherwise be completely impossible so we're gonna be bringing all this virtual production stuff to a video that we'll be releasing soon on this channel don't forget to say subscribe to them when

You're stuck at home it's always a good opportunity to also reorganize be a really really cool opportunity to reorganize my workspace and I'm super excited about it as I said I'm reporting a lot of music so I've got a full music

Set up here with my guitar rigs my pedals my audio the cool feature that I did here pull out keyboard so I can play music at my desk and record it the deluxe the set up but you know you can do it for really cheap it's just

Partying all the pieces together and if you guys haven't seen it I highly recommend building a slab PC on a wall it is so cool it saves tons of space so that's the update from Sam's house here yeah I hope you guys are staying safe

Out there and you've learned something new if you got a PC fired up learn some visual effects learn the game engine rights music make art do whatever you can to keep yourself sharp can't wait to get

Back to the studio and start turning some of this stuff that I'm learning into stuff that you guys get to see it's pretty cool it's pretty cool guys baby got anyone's K bye through puddles through subscribe to the

Choice well Oh spit up I don't think I'm getting by by her she sends her regards hey guys I'm Matt and you might not know me too well but you've probably seen me get shot in

The Keanu Reeves deep fake and get shot at in the Boston Dynamics video but what I'm not getting shot at I work at this here YouTube channel and so far I have had a blast with these guys I love coming to the studio every day now

Obviously things are a little bit different right now I'm working from home the whole studio is now I want to be able to bring the studio environment and all of my friends back home with me somehow there is one thing I haven't

Told you and that is that I am also a VFX artist see the the particles I'm going to utilize my green-screen blanket from corridor digital and we actually just restocked these so if you want one for yourself head on down the

Corridor digital dot store now all I have to do is throw this blanket up in the background so let's go ahead and try it out Wow great that was a visual effects – okay here we go I'm just gonna clap my hands and we will be transported

Enjoying these little vlogs we've been doing recently they've been a ton of fun and it's been fun to do with something a little bit different here on the corridor crew Channel we get a lot of questions all the time about filming and

About filming equipment and about what to use and how to get started and I'd like to answer that in our store corridor digital dot store there is an emergency green-screen blanket not only will it keep you warm it comes at a very

Affordable price and it's versatile you can fold it up you can take it with you you can pretty much go anywhere and do anything with it zoom meetings you can put it behind you you know maybe get a nice isolated edge
