The core team consisted of an animator, three level artists (including the lighting of the scene), a technical artist, an fx artist and two audio designers.

The entirety of the storyboarding, pre-visualization, level art, animation and visual effects was done by the core team.

There were also external contributors who helped with some character modeling, rigging and concept art.

100% of the short film was rendered in real-time in UE4.
