SUNDAY SUPER CINEMA: FIRST DAY – A Star Wars short film made with Unreal Engine 5

A fresh trooper butts heads with a grizzled veteran in this Star Wars short. First Day was created entirely in Unreal Engine 5 as a workflow test for the upcoming AFK miniseries ‘A Hole in the World’.

Starring Calum Gittins, Dallas Barnett, Hweiling Ow and Mia Pistorius.

AFK is a gaming / fantasy web series that follows the misadventures of a group of gamers who mysteriously wake up in the bodies of their MMO characters. Gender swapped, confused and out of their element, they must work together to survive in a hostile new world.

Filmed entirely in New Zealand, home of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit
