Last summer, we introduced you to the Mill BLACKBIRD, a cool car rig that acts as a VFX tool for movies. Now we show you a bit of how the machine has evolved in terms of usage.
Mill’s newest project is a short film called The Human Race. It was produced in partnership with Epic Games and Cheverlot. In this behind-the-scenes video, we see how Mill and the use of Epic’s Unreal Engine were able to create the movie’s awe-inspiring showdown. Implementing both technologies made way for the development of a realistic matchup between the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and the Chevrolet FNR autonomous concept car.
The clip also extensively shows us how the vehicles were virtually formatted onto the BLACKBIRD rig — 360-degree cameras were used as well as additional software and programs. The short flick just goes to exhibit where the future of films and video games will be heading.
