The first virtual production stage in London’s Soho will be opened by Film Soho during the final quarter of 2022.
V-Studios will be powered by the disguise Extended Reality (xR) workflow, featuring Absen’s 10m x 5m LED wall.
The new stage will operate alongside Film Studio’s ADR unit KrADR, who has worked with the likes of Netflix (Top Boy), Universal (Downtown Abbey) and CBS Studios (The Man Who Fell To Earth).
According to the company, V-Studios will allow filmmakers to place actors in completely controlled virtual environments, without ever having to leave Central London.
Its technology can also provide a range of filming solutions from pre-visualisation, virtual location scouting, additional photography and feature film pick-ups.
Nick Hamson and Chris Greenhill, founders of Film Soho said: “Film Soho are excited to launch at the end of this year, the first ever virtual production stage in the heart of Soho. As a talent and production led company it made perfect sense for us to incorporate Virtual Production into our film making offering.”
