Virtual production studio

Located at the heart of the International Media Production Zone Dubai, Fractal Studio is a state-of-the-art, mixed-reality facility equipped with a wraparound LED volume. With a virtual production stage that is 7000 sq.ft large, the 120 sq.m. LED wall, comprises a main, in-vision curve that is 24m wide by 5m high, two moveable side screens 3×2.5 meters each and height-adjustable LED lights that complete the fully encapsulated yet highly adaptable space. With LED volume featuring the most advanced real-time technologies and workflow, the production facility enables all delivery specifications of film and TV production necessary while using LED screens. The stage delivers a full solution for mixed-reality shoots and can be used for shooting in-camera VFX, and with camera, grip and lighting packages that are available on-site.

Virtual Production Benefits

Virtual production encourages a more interactive, non-linear and collaborative process. It empowers the filmmakers (including department heads) to collaboratively iterate on visual details in the moment, not deferring all of these decisions to post.
For filmmakers, the uncertainty of traditional pre-production and visual effects production are replaced with working imagery far closer to the final pixel. And because this high-quality imagery is produced via a real-time engine, iteration and experimentation are simplified, cost-efficient, and agile.
Creating Previs imagery via a real-time engine unlocks additional benefits. Sequences can be quickly updated and output at very high levels of image quality. As a result, more members of the team can share the vision of the final content much earlier in production.

  • Real-world camera movement for enhanced realism
  • Avoiding budget creep in post with increased levels of collaboration
  • Virtual green screen placement
  • Controlled lighting environment (as an example production can benefit a same sunrise light for 12 hours and days
  • Solving logistic problems and cost
  • Sustainable solution
