ARWALL IS LED VIRTUAL PRODUCTION FOR INDIE FILMMAKING
Are you an independent filmmaker looking for an experienced virtual production partner? We offer the stage, screen, operation, software, and servers in a bundled package for your production. The entire process starts with an understanding of your script, your desired shoot dates, and the size of LED volume you’ll require for your production. We’ve completed over 60 deployments including film and TV work for major studios. With over 20 years of experience in emerging entertainment technology, we’ve established ourselves as leaders in achieving beautiful cinematic results. Our innovative patented technology powers some of the best software and tools that are used on set during the shoot, rehearsal, and “tech scout.” What makes us unique at ARwall, is that in addition to providing the hardware, software, scene creativity, and supervision, we also do custom engineering for peripherals or feature integrations that are unique to a production. In plain terms, this means that there is nothing we can’t accomplish within the realm of virtual production.
For upcoming projects that are looking to get a quote for virtual production services, it generally starts with a discovery call and then at that point, we decide if it’s time for us to look at a script or storyboards. Our supervisors then turn those materials into a complete flat-rate bid for the virtual production department, scene creative, as well as suggestions on how we can optimize the production for this emerging technology. The most rewarding part for our team is creating stunningly beautiful environments that bring our client's visions to life so they can walk away from set with the final shot. We partner with numerous stages in Los Angeles and around the world. If you’re in the Los Angeles area, you can book a demo at our showroom for ARFX Pro, our flagship product for LED Virtual Production. If you’re in the South Korea area, you can book a demo at a partner showroom. Just reach out for more details.
We quote a 2-week minimum per scene for film/TV work, and 2 months minimum for interactive work. The upward cost depends on the complexity of the scene, with most environments being assigned a dedicated environment artist supervised by a Virtual Art Director who maintains the project’s vision across all scenes. On all projects, a project manager or Virtual Production Supervisor with deep experience in this type of deployment will also ensure efficient and timely completion.
During the virtual set design process, we’ll generate both image and video renders of the scene, iterate out options for the filmmakers on set, and previs as needed to ensure choreography is locked before the shoot. Done correctly, the on-set process will move smoothly from previs to rehearsal to production, with tweaks and continual changes available along the way. The true power of virtual production is generated during the preproduction process where control over the vision is set and maintained, and filmmakers will be able to enter the environments on their own device and provide comments.
For interactive projects, an interactive designer is also assigned to the creation, focused on the user experience and all interactive components. Most exciting is the opportunity to deploy and test work-in-progress versions of the environment for approval and notes, making all stakeholders an integral part of the process.
