Welcome to a brand new year, 2023! We start the year off with Tracy’s pick of the month, a sublime short by Half M.T Studios, called The Voice in the Hollow, made using Unreal Engine. We were blown away by quality of the virtual production in this short, although Ricky highlights a couple of pointers from a storytelling perspective. It is a very dark little tale, a la Cain and Abel, but there’s an even deeper back story to this one which Tracy explains.
The film provokes a discussion about the differences and similarities between virtual production and machinima – asking just how much fun is there now with making these productions? Spoiler alert: lots of course!
We’d love your feedback on this too, so do get in touch – contact info on our website, or drop in your thoughts below on the chat.
