No Film School Virtual Production Articles
This is the first article in a four-part series covering virtual production. In this first part, we are going to introduce some basic types of virtual production. The definitions used to describe VP terms in this series are moving targets in a rapidly evolving set of tools used in film production, so they may change with time. This is where virtual production currently fits within the filmmaking industry.
This is part two of four in this article series covering virtual production (you can read part one here). In this section, we will cover what is different about working on a virtual production that uses an LED volumetric film set in contrast to a traditional production that uses chroma keying.
The use of LED volume stages for film and commercial productions is becoming more popular following the critical success of Disney’s The Mandalorian, lensed by Grieg Fraser. This article is the third in a four-part series aimed at helping onboard filmmakers into this new toolset for telling great stories. For a primer, read parts one and two.
This article is part four in a series aimed at bringing knowledge to filmmakers around the world about working with virtual production toolsets. If you missed the first three, I highly recommend you check them out starting with the basics before jumping into this one, as they will give you the fundamental knowledge you need to understand how VP is changing things in the film industry.
