Collider Creates the First Ever Major Music Video Using Epic Games' Unreal Engine



H3000 project from Luke Steele and Jarrad Rogers takes us to a sci-fi landscape

Collider Creates the First Ever Major Music Video Using Epic Games' Unreal Engine

H3000 is the new musical project from Luke Steele (Empire Of The Sun, The Sleepy Jackson) and Jarrad Rogers (Charli XCX, Lana Del Rey), which seeks to tune the heart to a Year 3000 frequency.

The music videos for new singles ‘Running’ and ‘Flames’ were made by production and design company Collider and feature a playable final game level in which the musical duo ‘Luke 18’ and ‘Mstr Rogers’ control their own sci-fi avatars as they are chased across a dramatic black sand tundra.

Our duo, having successfully stolen an artefact make their way down from the mountains to get back to their craft. They know it’s only a matter of time before they are found out and pursued by an ominous threat who are hot on their heels.

Music video and animation director Andrew van der Westhuyzen said: "I've been following Unreal Engine for some time but this was the first project that Collider decided to jump all in and embrace a very different way of working. It was exciting to approach what would have been a traditional animation process in a very different way and discover the beautifully rich, immersive and serendipitous possibilities that Unreal Engine can create.”

Unreal Engine is the world's most open and advanced real-time 3D creation platform for photoreal visuals and immersive experiences and has been used to create games such as Fortnight, Street Fighter V and the Final Fantasy VII remake.
