Black Channel

This collage shows just a few previews of the VFX for the Black Channel project

Bachelor of Creative Media Production

As the VFX Lead on Black Channel, my role entailed making FX that enhanced the experience of playing the game. This project intrigued me because it was the perfect opportunity to challenge my skills. My passion for VFX and Animation grew even stronger from this journey. I learned so much and am proud of the work I did considering it was my first time doing VFX for a game.
Black Channel is a 3D first person cassette futurism horror game that follows Markus, a newly recruited search and rescue pilot, as he begins his first day patrolling the infamous Bermuda Triangle-like area of the Boötes Void known as the ‘Black Channel’. As you explore his ship, you interact with belongings, audio-logs, and black boxes from previous pilots, piecing together a mystery revealing eldritch entities that reside within the void.
