We meticulously develop any visual effects for any films, beginning collaboration with the creative team at the screenplay stage. During pre-production, we offer our services to create pre-visualizations using cutting-edge VR/AR technologies for precise task definition for both the production team and our future work. Our supervisors rigorously oversee the entire filming process, enabling us to execute tasks at the highest level and promptly respond to any unforeseen circumstances. During post-production, we undertake various types of work, including:
- Modeling; - Texturing; - Shading (material adjustments); - Animation; - Visual Effects (VFX) (simulation of water, fire, smoke, explosions, etc.); - Compositing of any complexity...and much more.
Having vast experience collaborating with leading studios in Russia and worldwide, we are ready to offer complete organization of visual effects production for projects of any complexity. Budget control, subsequent monitoring, and production organization, optimal task allocation among studios - we will ensure everything necessary to achieve the highest quality in our work.
Over the past five years, we've successfully implemented a new tool for virtual pre-production in six films. Using the Unreal Engine gaming platform, we create a virtual replica of future sets or real locations. Inside this environment, the cinematographer or director manipulates a virtual camera within Unreal Engine while operating a real camera in the physical world. This setup allows for seamless shot replication, movement at any speed, flight, real-time adjustments to lighting, and scene component animations. This method constitutes a full-fledged filming process within the confines of a studio. It enables meticulous preparation for shoots, rehearsals for shot sizes, blocking, movement dynamics, lighting, and other on-set aspects. This tool has proven exceptionally effective, evidenced by the feedback and reactions from our clients. Experience it for yourself!
