Hi everyone, I’d like to share my latest UE project. A tribute to Arrival by Denis Villeneuve, one of my all time favourite sci-fi films.
I used Livelink to Metahumans for the facial animation, while other movements were animated manually. I wanted to add a lot more to this mood piece in terms of dialogue, sweeping landscapes and more visual flare but I quickly ran out of time. Hopefully it’s something I can pursue for my next project.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this!

Gorgeous shots, lighting and compositions. What an amazing tribute to a great movie! Loved the facial animaitons, great use of the live link!
@Rok.Pat, I couldn’t have said it better myself! @JayHPatel, Your tribute to “Arrival” is brilliant; thank you for sharing it with us here in the forums! I only wish you had more time to add the other elements you couldn’t, specifically dialogue because that’s the only thing I feel is missing. Nevertheless, your creation is terrific, and I hope we get to see the next project you produce!
Hi there @JayHPatel,
Hope you’re doing well and having a great week so far
I just watched this movie with my friends! Was a genuinely brilliant take on alien life and humanity. You did a terrific job of showcasing the beauty of this movie and how utterly haunting it was.
Thank you for sharing this masterpiece and I hope to see more of your work around the forums
Thank you @Rok.Pat, really appreciate the kind words! There were some limitations to Live Link but it worked great for close up shots
Thank you @Zezkaii, appreciate the support! I had an entire section planned out for a brief monologue but I currently don’t own a mocap suit and didn’t want to embarrass myself by trying to animate it manually haha! I’ll keep this in mind and work towards that for my next project
Hey @PresumptivePanda I’m great thank you, hope you are as well!
I agree, it’s a great film and a breath of fresh air in relation to other sci-fi media. Thank you for the support, it’s great seeing and interacting with talent from all around the world on these forums.
The pleasure is all mine, and no worries! Even without the added dialogue, the finished creation turned out splendid. Kudos again on a job well done.
Amazing job! That’s great! I subscribe to you in the artstation
Congrats, really impressive work!
