Over the last few months, we've been speaking to key players in the film, television and advertising world in and around the province of Quebec and realized that while most people had heard of virtual production, many didn’t completely understand what it is and how it works. 

That's why we decided to present a full event on this topic: InFocus Virtual Production :: Perspectives Production Virtuelle. This free online conference took place on May 13, 2021, and gathered local and international speakers and panelists from across the industry - Dreamwall, Epic Games, Mtl Studios Grande, Ncam, Neweb Labs, Zero Density - who discussed best practices, practical cases, and how virtual production can accelerate the whole creative and production process.

Our main focus

Our focus with this conference is to explain to the community of directors, producers and technical teams:

  • What virtual production is
  • The differences between the traditional and virtual production pipeline
  • What technologies can be used, and when and how to use them
  • And lastly to get to know virtual production best practices and use cases!

While virtual production was made popular in blockbusters like Avatar and more recently with shows like The Mandelorian (Star Wars), the good news is that you no longer need a Hollywood budget to bring virtual production to life and it can be used for television and advertising as well.
