Virtual Production Inspirational Lab in partnership with European Virtual Production Alliance

“Demystifying VP and its applications for independent productions and industry”

Virtual Production has undoubtedly been one of the most spoken-about industry innovations of recent years, yet for independent industries, it remains a practice shrouded in mystery. Is it only about hyper-expensive LED screens and blockbuster productions, or will this novel approach also revolutionise independent productions? 

VIRTUAL INNOVATION, organised in partnership with European Virtual Production Alliance – an industry network of Europe’s leading virtual production experts and studios, will demystify virtual production once and all for independent industry leaders from financiers decision makers to producers, VFX supervisors, and below the line crew. This Lab will look into different forms of VP, including In-Camera VFX, LED production, previsualization, virtual cameras, and set capturing, as well as into how to assess VP suitability for your production, how to budget and plan the workflow, and how to manage the process from start to finish successfully. The Lab will also present recent case studies from awarded European festival favourites and feature films and TV series to give the participant a 360-degree look into the world of VP.
