Dneg and Dimension team up on virtual productions
Dneg has teamed up with mixed reality and volumetric specialist Dimension to create a virtual production partnership.
They are working together on a number of virtual production projects, including what they describe as the “groundbreaking” short film Fireworks (pictured above), directed by Dneg creative director Paul Franklin.
Dneg CEO Namit Malhotra, said: “This partnership helps position Dneg and Dimension at the forefront of what is possible in virtual production. Our industry is evolving quickly, accelerated by the changes brought about by the global pandemic. This new creative process enables fresh approaches to the production of filmed content, opening more creative avenues for our filmmaking partners and addressing a number of the limitations imposed by the current restrictions on being on-set and travelling. Dimension is one of the best in its field, and I’m delighted to be partnering with Simon, Steve and the Dimension team to bring our clients the benefits of this exciting technology.”
Steve Jelley, joint managing director, Dimension, added: “Dneg is one of the world’s leading VFX companies, and we’re very excited to be partnering with them to provide filmmaking clients with the very best virtual production experience. Game technologies like Unreal Engine are elevating the creative process for filmmakers and storytellers and we’re seeing a surge in demand for our virtual production and volumetric services - right across the entertainment sphere. These state-of-the-art production techniques point toward an exciting new era for content creation and our partnership with Dneg brings these services to an even wider set of clients across film, episodic and animated content.”
