Virtual Production requires working with highly optimised real-time environments built within a game engine to be used as the backdrop for a shoot in film, television or advertising. We predominantly use Unreal Engine to build our environments. Our team of experts strive to achieve the highest levels of photorealism combined with performance on the Virtual Production volume, in particular when working with LED.
Anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 weeks. We recommend getting in touch as early as possible. We also have library environments we can start from to expedite the process if you are working to a tight deadline. These can also work out more cost effective than building from scratch.
A 3D environment optimised for Virtual Production starts around $10k. Typical ranges are between $15-$40k depending on level of customisation and scale of environment. This price includes concepting, a series of creative reviews, optimisation and delivery to stage. You get a dedicated team of experts who are experienced in all aspects of Virtual Production, known for pushing the boundaries for clients and delivering on time.
We can build any environment you can imagine. We don't need to travel to locations and do any fancy scanning or photogrammetry - you could start with just a photo. It may start with just a nugget of an idea, that we can help you to develop.
We work closely with producers, directors, clients, production designers and all types of creative involved on a project to shape the concept and design. Our in-house team then builds custom 3D models which are then incorporated into an Unreal Engine environment optimised for use in Virtual Production. We have created a bespoke, bottom up pipeline specifically for meeting the demands of all types of Virtual Production shoot.
We typically begin with a brief provided from you - this can be accompanied by mood boards and visual references to help guide the look. We can help you put together this brief if you don't know where to start - its no problem, this is a new process and we are here to help guide you.
We are a global team working in multiple time zones, and we are setup to deliver anywhere in the world. We use tools such as Perforce and secure storage to facilitate this.
Yes - absolutely. We are adept at working with stage teams, and we know what it takes to make content that really sings in Virtual Production. Final Pixel is an end-to-end production company, which means regularly working closely with On Set Virtual Production (OSVP) teams at many different stages across the globe. Yours may even be part of our trusted network, which guarantees the highest standard in service.
Please get in touch! We would love to hear from you.
