Blomkamp to premiere second installment of Adam: The Prophet at SIGGRAPH


Neil Blomkamp and OATS Studios are gearing up for the debut of ADAM: The Prophet, the third installment of the ADAM franchise. As part of the announcement, Unity Technologies, creator of the world's most popular creation engine that has over 3 billion users, unveiled today that 'ADAM: The Prophet' will premiere at SIGGRAPH Asia at 11p.m.PT on November 29th, and will be available to watch worldwide on YouTube shortly thereafter.

As the third part of the ADAM franchise, ADAM: The Prophet will treat viewers their first glimpse of one of the villains in the ADAM universe. It comes after 'ADAM: The Mirror', which follows the cyborg hero discovering a clue about what and who he is. The series originated with ADAM, an award-winning short film, originally created to demonstrate technical innovations on Unity.

Located at booth #A02, OATS Studios and Unity will be giving SIGGRAPH Asia attendees a look at the breakthrough achievements in 'ADAM: The Prophet', including deep dives into features and techniques such as photogrammetry, Timeline and other workflows used to achieve lifelike CG humans. Additional sessions will also be held to demonstrate the latest advances in XR, artist workflows and technologies in Unity 2017.

Dag, yo. All this information is making me want to pull some strings and see if I can't get invited to this thing. I'm a fiend for special effects and digital rendering technologies, and would positively love to pick the brains of those who work at Unity. I should do it, right? I mean, do I really need my next few month's rent money? Possessions are overrated anyway, man.

But hey, if you find yourself going to the SIGGRAPH event, drop us a line and let us know what went down.
