See behind the scenes of the new #ViconPowered Dimension Studios project, Akuma, a short film being made in Unreal Engine and featuring the new MetaHuman Characters.

The film, an atmospheric short about a samurai meeting his demon, has been written and directed by Dimension creative director Rob McLellan. AKUMA has been created by Dimension, in collaboration with Vicon, who have provided their motion capture system and Shōgun software.

By combining the latest in VFX motion capture, digital humans and real-time development, Vicon and Dimension are collaborating to produce AKUMA to give a glimpse into a future of filmmaking and virtual entertainment that’s efficient, believable, authentic and visually stunning. AKUMA will be a great example of the capacity of MetaHumans and Unreal Engine for storytelling.
