Virtual Production: How We Do It
Butcher Bird tackles eight dynamic CG scenes that show off our innovative approach to virtual production using a green screen volume.
The phrase “Virtual Production” often brings to mind massive shows like The Mandalorian or 1899, but this exciting new technology is quickly becoming a key tool in the Butcher Bird arsenal. In collaboration with Pixotope, Mo-Sys, and Blackmagic Design, This is How We Do It pushes the limits of VP (Virtual Production) capabilities for independent studios by creating eight distinct virtual environments, all shot live on a green screen volume.
Unique virtual environments
Virtual production shooting days
Our unique green screen volume solution allows us to push the boundaries of creativity with real-time motion tracking, compositing, multi-cam shooting, and world building in Unreal Engine. From a talk show set, to distant alien planets, we place live actors in environments that teem with possibilities. Now we can apply virtual production flexibility to small and mid-scale production, with thrilling results.
“I’m blown away with the real-time keying this team accomplished with the Ultimatte 12. They’re achieving a look that would have only been possible on broadcast budgets just a few years ago — and they’re doing it for a livestream workflow.”- Dave Hoffman, Blackmagic Design
