Garden Studios has partnered with Quite Brilliant and MadeBrave on a new film that showcases the real benefits of virtual production, and how the wider creative industries can contribute to tackling climate change and environmental degradation.
Shot using virtual production at Garden Studios in London, the film visits ten global locations, from the Scottish highlands to the streets of Japan.
According to the companies involved, the film emitted less than one tonne of carbon. If it had been shot as a traditional multi-location film, it would have emitted over 120 times that amount.
Chris Chaundler, MD of Quite Brilliant, the London-based production house behind the film, said, “Virtual production is here to stay and has the potential to massively decrease the carbon footprints of productions, as we have demonstrated with this project.
“With virtual production, the possibilities are truly endless; creatives can influence sets in ways they’ve never been able to before. Virtual stages are also inherently safer and more efficient places to create new film content, while some virus-related restrictions remain in place.”
