What is my Wildcard Dive Bar short trailer about?

Main storyline-

The main purpose of the Wildcard Dive Bar short trailer is to show some sort of mystery in my game environment or a crime scene has happened, which leads to the bar being completely deserted. An example would be the cigarette being ignited at the start of the footage, it gives that spooky feeling that something tragic happened in the Wildcard Dive Bar game environment. Fairy lights and neon signs are powered on through out the trailer. However, no one knows why the electricity is on or why the neon lights are flickering? 

Hope you guys like my Wildcard Dive Bar short trailer! :)

Wildcard Dive Bar Environment - Final Renders -

The five final renders is to show of what my game environment looks like from multiple perspectives and angles. All the game assets, lighting, texturing, Unreal Engine 4 materials and short trailer is all my own student work created from scratch during in my second year at the University of Hertfordshire. Wildcard Dive Bar game environment is a second year solo creative project and spent nearly 400 hours on it (nine weeks worth of work).
