Virtual Production

Virtual production (often abbreviated to VP) is an emerging method that uses a combination of technologies ranging from the use of LED screens, real-time game engines, AI, 5G, cloud rendering and edge computing to combine live action footage and computer graphics in real-time.

Billed as the future of film-making, virtual production is the process of mixing live footage and computer graphics simultaneously, to get real-time feedback and to make decisions on set about composition, VFX and animations. Combining the power and affordability of game engines such as Unreal Engine and Unity and the visualization capabilities of VR, virtual production shifts the pipelines and creative workflows of film-making.

Virtual Production Service Work

From our Advanced Media Production Studio, at our Central London hub, we can set you up for remote connection with performers, creatives or directors anywhere in the world. Our team are here to ensure you get the highest level of accuracy from our performance capture stage whilst you view the virtual environment and characters in real-time.

In 2021, Target3D collaborated with Digital Catapult to launch and run the Virtual Production Test Stage in Guildford, UK. Following its success the collaboration continues with Advanced Media Production (AMP), a network of technology studios from Digital Catapult and Target3D that provide access to Virtual Production and 3D technology for filmmakers, universities and creative industries across the UK.
