disguise has partnered with production studio Plató Nou to launch its Virtual Production Accelerator Programme in Barcelona in order to meet the growing demand for advanced virtual production skill sets in Spain.
The programme, which is already available in Los Angeles and Wakefield, UK offers a blend of traditional classroom training and real-world principal photography, equipping trainees with crucial skills in volume control operations, virtual art department integration and practical shoot elements, said disguise.
Plató Nou’s studio is equipped with a virtual production setup, including a 2.6mm LED Volume, with Brompton Processors, disguise vx 4+ and rx II media servers, Mo-Sys tracking, HTC tracking and ARRI Orbiters.
“Barcelona, a fantastic European production hub, especially for advertising, is well-positioned to become a major virtual production centre for Europe – and the demand for virtual production skill-sets is growing rapidly,” said Antoine Vaxelaire, co-founder and creative director at Plató Nou.
In addition to launching the Accelerator Programme, Plató Nou will be a fully-fledged partner of disguise Learn, offering in-classroom and online courses for those working within virtual production, extended reality, broadcast graphics, location-based experiences and live events.
