UE5 Music Video - dedicated to creative night owls!


My friends and I made a music video together (for the first time!) using UE5.

Would love to know what you think!

Here’s a short vid of how we created it: Minhy [mini] on Instagram: "3 months condensed into 2 mins 🤓A glimpse of how we made the ‘Dead Of The Night’ music video! Full music video now available on Vimeo - via my bio 🤗 Directed by: Minhy Technical & VFX Specialist: @rhys_arkm Animator: @thuanphuynh Concept Designer: @art_bleed Created in @Unrealengine Special thanks to #billymadison 😜"

Thank you :slight_smile:


Hey @anonymous_user_b678278c!

Welcome to the Unreal Forums, and thank you for sharing such a stunning music video to a beautiful song! You and your friends did a fantastic job with this visual. How long did it take to create this masterpiece?

Will your team continue to create more visual projects to illustrate future songs you create?

Wow, this is really cool!
Banging song too!

I really like the zoom-out and spinning, resulting in the statues coming alive. really fits the song.
(tiny nitpick) Might be neat to focus on that per-character a little more before the animated stills.

Hey !
Thank you so much for your kind words!
It took us around 3 months on and off (as we had to work between projects), but I’m super grateful for Unreal’s real time rendering, as this saved us sooo much time.

I hope we’ll collaborate again - I think we’ve got a good thing going! Thanks so much for watching!!


Hey @ !
Thanks so much for your feedback!
The music video is actually based off the concept of a zoetrope, if you’ve seen those before?
That’s where the spinning and animation came from :slight_smile:
So happy you like it!

yea, I have seen those before, even had an old childs-toy that worked the same way.
It helped me understand how movies where made when I was very little :slight_smile:

So cool that you had one of your own! And got that understanding from a young age :slight_smile: First one I saw was at a Pixar exhibition…my mind was blown :exploding_head:haha

It’s no problem at all! The music video came out spectacular for three months of working on and off on it. I hope everyone involved comes together again to do more great work inside of Unreal Engine for everyone to enjoy.

Thank you for sharing again! :sunglasses: :+1:
