Virtual studio projects are ideal for achieving an impressive studio look without incurring the expenses of location hire. Using specialised compositing techniques, footage and custom digital elements are compiled to create a ‘studio’ environment. This type of visual effect is becoming increasingly popular in product videos, entertainment reviews, educational films and tutorials.
Although complex in terms of post production, the main advantage of this format is that the client can bypass the need to release a large part of its premises or hire a suitably large studio-like office space. Using green screen keying technology, the talent can present to camera in a makeshift but well-equipped studio space set up in any common home or office space over 4 square metres in size.
The ‘See it Live’ button below features a selection of visual effects-based productions involving composited environments including those I created for the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay.
