practical use of on-set visualization and Virtual production
’On-set visualisation’ is the actual showing of mixed media on the film set e.g. live from camera, CGI or pre-recorded backgrounds/foregrounds, storyboard, animations etc.
Visualization engages directors, cinematographers, production designers, visual effects designers, actors and crew through both the technical and creative aspects of production planning - with improved performances, reduced editing pipeline and cost savings as a main benefit. On-set visualization is the part that takes place on the actual film set aiming for continuous visualisation enhancing the end result according to the original ideas.
In this session Allan O Lückow, CEO and founder of MoCopenhagen, engages in a practical discussion of issues related to the actual on-set use of mixing visuals. When is it useful, who needs it and why don’t we use it all the time? He also takes us behind the scenes of different on-set visualizations and virtual production attempts, including "Immortals" (2011) and the Danish attempt, "Dr. Feelgood”, talking about what was learned.
