Virtual Production Showcase at MMC Studios.“MMC Studios are the hot spot for every kind of moving-image production in Germany, so the best way seemed to organize a real-life demo in our Cologne based studios, with a complete set up of all the components involved and an actress performing in the set” comments Jens Wolf, Managing Director at MMC Studios.

Using a virtual background cannot only reduce the costs of on-location shoots and the post-production time, it also can boost the performance of the actors involved.

Virtual Production Showcase at MMC Studios.As actress Neshe Demir explains: “You’re directly in the right environment depicted in the scene, so you don’t have to visualize it. I could feel that my body reflections reacted to the environment shown, making the acting much more natural and easier”.

For the set in the MMC Studios a backwall, measuring 96 sqm, consisting of 416 ROE Visual Diamond DM2.6 LED panels was used for the on-camera shoots, requiring a finer pixel pitch.

Additional dynamic lighting and reflections were created using a flown LED ceiling of 45 Carbon Series CB5 panels, enhancing the level of accuracy and realism.
