Burning question: what is virtual production?
Technical innovations in video game development have allowed Virtual Production to explode in filmmaking and episodic series. We have several videos where the professionals explain exactly what virtual production is. In short, filmmakers use virtual sets and virtual actors to speed up production and save money. Ultimately, a lot of virtual production can be done in real time! We also have some cool examples of virtual production. This includes videos about the making of The Mandalorian and Game of Thrones, as well as The Mill's virtual production role.
