    Flite Sci-Fi Short Film

    “Do it again. This time so it doesn’t suck.” A remarkable proof-of-concept short film to show the incredible potential of the Unreal Engine. Of course this isn’t the first animated short film to do this, but this one does stand out. Flite is a sci-fi hyper-realistic 3D animated short film created by VFX artist Tim Webber, who also happens to be CCO of the VFX studio known as Framestore in the UK. They’ve been hyping this up all year and it’s finally online to watch. “Using state-of-the-art virtual production techniques comes one of the most technically impressive sci-fi shorts.” Set in London 2053, a world champion hoverboarder finds herself imprisoned in a skyscraper by her obsessive manager. She engineers an ingenious high-rise escape but soon finds herself riding for her life. The film features Alba Baptista as Stevie, with Gethin Anthony, Daniel Lawrence Taylor, and Hayley Carmichael. This comes from an Oscar winning VFX house so it has that near-perfect look and feel. I love that this shows how much potential hoverboards really have in the future.
