Abstract

This paper analyses methodological and conceptual shifts in filmmaking brought about by the integrated use of VR technology, game engines, and LED walls in a Virtual Production Studio (VPS). The paper focuses not only on the components of an integrated VPS system, but also on what makes it qualitatively different from traditional filmmaking technologies. The VPS concept transforms the relationships among display technology, live action, image production, and postproduction (VFX) by causing a qualitative and performative shift in filmmaking. The paper analyses the current state of VP research from both conceptual and technological perspectives, global VP facilities, and significant trends in Australia by presenting two business case studies. We have observed three major trends: Globalisation, Collaboration and Industrialisation. The paper concludes by stating that there is a need for an integrated VPS network through shared infrastructure and resources to foster high quality research and to solve industry-identified problems through industry-led collaborative research partnerships.
