VOTD: Blomkamp’s “ADAM: Chapter 2”

One thing there’s surprisingly little of in cinemas is the use of video game engines to help craft visuals effects and artificial environments within a film. Director Neil Blomkamp and his Oats studio took that challenge head-on with “ADAM,” a multi-part tale within the company’s collection of short films.

Created using the commonly used in AAA games Unity engine, the five-minute first chapter hit back in June. Now, the second chapter titled ‘The Mirror’ has arrived. The chapter continues the story of an amnesiac robot who wakes up in a frightening new world. Both chapters have been included below.
