In this podcast, recorded at the conference, Chris sits down with General Manager Marc Petit and Sr. Product Manager Ken Pimentel at Unreal Engine Enterprise to discuss what this meeting of minds means.

      Deja View: Mushka in Color

      August 21, 2017, 5:20 am
      We are so ecstatic to move into final color on our film Mushka. In this scene above we find out that Sarah's and Mushka's sleeping quarters have gotten too small for a girl and a Siberian tiger. Mushka turns over in bed, causing Sarah to fall to the floor. A color pencil texture will be added in order to avoid the conventional cel-painted look. Our final color scenes rock!!

      Editing an hour-long factual film can take a couple of months. The editor and director work closely to make the most of what’s been shot and to tell the story as clearly and engagingly as possible.
