Visual effects company DNEG and xR studio Dimension are joining forces on a virtual production partnership.
The venture will align Dimension’s volumetric and real-time development capabilities and DNEG’s creative talent, technology teams and entertainment industry relationships.
“This partnership helps position DNEG and Dimension at the forefront of what is possible in virtual production,” said DNEG CEO Namit Malhotra.
“Our industry is evolving quickly, accelerated by the changes brought about by the global pandemic. This new creative process enables fresh approaches to the production of filmed content, opening more creative avenues for our filmmaking partners and addressing a number of the limitations imposed by the current restrictions on being on-set and travelling.”
“Game technologies like Unreal Engine are elevating the creative process for filmmakers and storytellers and we’re seeing a surge in demand for our virtual production and volumetric services – right across the entertainment sphere,” added Steve Jelley, joint managing director, Dimension. “These state-of-the-art production techniques point toward an exciting new era for content creation and our partnership with DNEG brings these services to an even wider set of clients across film, episodic and animated content.”
DNEG previously worked with Brompton Technologies to create an in-house studio environment tailored to virtual production.
