A new £1 million virtual production studio is set to open its doors in Wakefield, Yorkshire later this year.
The Centre for Virtual Production is set to be the first of its kind in Yorkshire, and will be situated within the XPLOR facility.
The facility will use extended reality technology to offer film and TV producers the ability to build fully immersive video sets.
XPLOR’s development director Jim Farmery said: “We’re really excited to be launching the XR studio this year. We believe it represents a really exciting investment in the future of the region’s blossoming creative industries, which we hope will further bolster Yorkshire’s position as a world-leading centre of excellence in film, TV and live event production.”
The Centre is the latest in a number of virtual production studios either set to open or already available in the UK. Earlier this month, the UK’s largest independent virtual production facility opened in Ruislip, West London, and Warner Bros has opened a virtual production studio at its base in Leavesden.
