NEXT GENERATION VIRTUAL PRODUCTION STAGE FOR ICVFX

We’re very excited to present our new, production-ready virtual production LED with innovative curved cinematic boards and their advantages as opposed to straight panels. LED production stages are dedicated to In-Camera VFX (ICVFX). We will be offering an in-depth presentation and hands-on shooting for all involved departments of film production. For executive producers and studios, we demonstrate how our mobile stage helps eliminate investment risks, how flexible setups work, and why we will innovate our LED product at least every 9 – 12 months.

Virtual production for producers

Permanently installed LED volumes demand high CAPEX and limit productions in their choice of set and creativity. To eliminate the initial investment and financial risk, we will show how to set up an entire studio just for a limited time during production. A temporary volume is more flexible, can be shaped to fit any production and set, and is in the long run more profitable and safer. To enable even more flexibility, we’ll introduce you to our newest curved LED, which can be tailored to any specific need.

6:00 p.m.

Get Together and Release Party

For all admirers of virtual production, we invite to our release party of HALOSTAGE Mk III, the only curved boards stage worldwide. Please join us for a cocktail or two. Also, there will be a secret tour of Charlie Chaplin’s studio and Henson will show, how puppeteers work.

During each session, the HALOSTAGE crew with VP Supervisor, TD, VP Producer, and technicians, as well as VFX Supervisors and Producers from LAVAlabs, Friends from DIGIC, and many more will be present to answer every question you might have. The aim of the workshops is to provide you with some hands-on experience, get rid of some commonly discovered prejudices, get you to feel comfortable working with the LED, and discuss technical, visual, dramaturgical and any aspect of the virtual production process you can think of.
