Virtual Production is the future of filmmaking, combining physical and virtual filmmaking techniques to create cutting-edge media. For virtual production, teams use a real-time 3D engine (Unreal Engine) to create photorealistic digital assets and then display them on large LED walls combined with a physical set using the real-time rendering capabilities of game engines. The cameras are synced with motion trackers for enhanced realism and depth of perspective.

Industry experts and veterans will share tips and tricks to achieve magical light, personalized realistic virtual sets, Quicker turnaround between shots, hassle-free shoots in locations where permissions are impossible/expensive to obtain, immersive lighting, clean plates, and cost-efficient shoots.
