Virtual Production On a Micro Scale

Mar 10, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

Mandalorian-sized volumes can cost up to $100,000/day, but innovative Twitch streamers are engineering their own solutions to leapfrog the big studios and teleport themselves into the future. Utilizing motion capture suits, AR filters, green screens, Unreal Engine, and other custom software, these innovators are gaining mass amounts of followers and revolutionizing the game show and talk show formats. This panel will discuss the logistics of entering the virtual world on a very real budget, how technology can be the ultimate tool for creativity, and what new opportunities are being created.
