Forma Pro Films is launching one of Europe’s largest LED Unit studios in Latvia this summer, Variety has learned. The virtual production facility will utilize the latest state-of-the-art technology in real-time rendering, live camera tracking hardware, and LED screens to enable what the company describes as “a completely new way” of producing films, TV shows and commercials. Three films and seven commercials are already lined up for production.
The 16,000-square-foot site, set to open in the Latvian capital of Riga this August, will offer a combination of game engine technology and a photorealistic 3D environment to allow for the creation of spatial imagery that the company says goes beyond what is currently possible in film production. The studio’s background can dynamically update to match camera perspectives in real time, and huge LED panels will generate the ideal lighting to replicate natural settings and reflections, allowing for a real-world feel mapped onto a wide range of LED screens.
