We are currently working on previs for our upcoming feature production “The CURSE.” Because of the large amount of mocap data we needed to record, we decided to put together our own virtual production stage to capture real-time performances. We rigged our stage in K-town with optitrack cameras. After a detailed calibration, we stream the raw mocap data to the 3D model of our character and place him/her into the virtual sets. We then play around with cameras and are able to see the final results all in real time!
We traveled to beautiful Marin County to check out Skywalker Ranch and meet the audio wizards of Skywalker Sound. We then went to the San Francisco Presidio to meet up with our friend Kim Libreri, ILM VFX supervisor who gave us a tour of the ILM offices.
