VIRTUAL PRODUCTION

Our Expertise: Pioneering Virtual Art Department, Visualization, and ICVFX for Unforgettable Stories.

As the driving force behind Arctic7's Virtual Production branch, Narwhal Studios is honored to specialize in Virtual Art Department, Visualization, and ICVFX. We've been fortunate to collaborate with leading studios as they embrace these pioneering technologies, allowing us to play a key role in establishing industry standards.

Focused on high quality visuals and deep narratives, we offer an integrated approach that combines creativity and real-time technology. The result is storytelling that doesn't just captivate—it leaves a lasting impact.

OUR Services

Our suite of services focuses on designing scenes, worlds, characters, and experiences, seamlessly blending elements from both linear and interactive media forms. Our approach infuses real-time technology into every stage of production.

Discovery

We initiate your project with a comprehensive consultation, pinpointing both challenges and opportunities. Through a meticulous project assessment, we recommend pipelines and allocated teams to keep your production seamlessly on track and within deadlines.

Virtual Art Department

Our Virtual Art Department brings your creative vision to life through high-quality 3D concept art and virtual set designs. We emphasize virtual set decoration and tech-vis, identifying cost-effective solutions, while offering photogrammetry, virtual scouting, and virtual pre-lights.

Visualization

We transform your abstract ideas into vivid visual animated scenes, utilizing a range of tools from pre-vis to post-vis. This service allows for a collaborative shot design process, making it easier to make informed decisions and adjustments long before physical production begins.

Final Pixel

This stage elevates real-time visuals to photorealistic quality, creating immersive, script-aligned scenes. Utilizing Unreal Engine, we offer adaptable lighting solutions that can seamlessly integrate into both ICVFX shoots and traditional VFX workflows.

ICVFX

Our ICVFX services merge the best of traditional and real-time filmmaking by capturing scenes on an LED screen. This cutting-edge approach not only enhances the shooting process but also offers a faster, more dynamic alternative to conventional post-production VFX, expediting your overall production timeline.

At Narwhal Studios, we're passionate about Virtual Production, and we value collaboration. We're excited about the possibility of working together.

OUR Approach

We tailor our tools to suit your unique workflow,

from custom lenses to specialized lighting kits and art department tools. This customization allows you to visualize both physical and virtual elements effectively, fostering a more intuitive creative process.

We host regular real-time reviews with story, art, production, and VFX teams.

This collaborative approach enables ongoing dialogue and refinement, ensuring that all key creatives are aligned at each critical stage of the project.

In collaboration with physical teams,

We prioritize photogrammetry to ensure seamless integration. We work alongside set decorators to harmonize both physical and virtual assets, guaranteeing cohesive set extensions for both traditional VFX and ICVFX.

We offer virtual scouting

Via VR or iPads, directly collaborating with production designers on sets and DPs on lighting. This approach highlights scale issues and cost-saving areas, helping craft the final vision in sync with key creatives.
