Tales of Akkretion S1E1 - Sci-Fi Cinematic

Tales of Akkretion is my cinematic video series based on my in-development game, Akkretion (formerly Droids Ships & Planets). This is a sci-fi animated short film set in our future solar system.

Making Of/VFX Breakdown

The mining ship was my "hero asset" for this cinematic. I was inspired a lot by ships in Space Engineers and No Man's Sky, although those are on a completely different level :D

Modeling: Blender

Texturing: Substance Painter

Rendering: Unity

My favorite, the live-action composite shot! With the lighting and camera angle planned in Unity beforehand, I shot some live-action footage on my phone with lighting, a green screen, and my miner uniform. Unfortunately, the green screen didn't work out so well, so I just rotoscoped myself and tracked the footage onto the digital footage from Unity. Finally, I added a bit of post-processing/color grading to composite the final shot.

Rotoscoping: Adobe After Effects

Compositing/Editing: Adobe Premiere Pro

The Unity Game Engine is what I used to compose, animate, and render my shots, as well as do some simple VFX and Shaders. My Timeline consisted of mostly activation and animation tracks, nothing too fancy.
