The joint venture establishes a virtual production team that spans the US and the UK
UK-based virtual production specialist Bild Studios has partnered with LA-based Lux Machina to create a US-UK virtual production team.
The new team aims to provide the film, TV, and live event production industry with straightforward access to real-time VFX production technology.
Bild Studios’s film and TV productions include Detective Pikachu, Brave New World, Avenue 5 and Infinity, while Lux Machina has worked on high-profile real-time virtual productions including Disney’s The Mandalorian and League of Legends’ Worlds 2020.
David Bajt, co-founder of Bild Studios, said: “We are hugely excited and honoured to announce this partnership with Lux Machina. The combination of our teams’ skills, experience and technical know-how will provide film studios and TV production houses access to the world’s very best virtual production technologies, tools and talent. Our objective is to pioneer the latest technologies and workflows in the film, TV and live events industries, giving film-makers powerful storytelling tools using immersive in-camera VFX environments. This partnership marks a significant step forward for the future of virtual production, both in the UK, US and beyond.”
Phil Galler, co-CEO at Lux Machina, added: “Having worked closely with Bild Studios many times throughout the years, we could think of no better group to partner with as we continue to deploy virtual production stages in the US, UK and across the globe. Both Lux Machina and Bild have been focused on pushing the boundaries of what was previously thought possible. A partnership between both companies will provide our global network of clients with access to the world’s best talent and most-cutting edge technologies and workflows.
“There is no question that virtual production has cemented its place as a tool for storytelling, and this partnership provides producers and visionaries with the support of two of the foremost experts in in-camera visual effects.”
