Our Volume

Our 270-degree 25.5 x 5m curved LED wall and 176m² out-of-camera LED ceiling makes us the largest independent Virtual Production facility in the UK.
We can offer both partial ceiling and full pod ceiling with lighting.

Partial Ceiling

A partially capped ceiling configuration which enables a cost-effective shoot without the need for a fully immersed lighting environment.

Partial Ceiling
with Embedded Lighting Fixtures

As a dynamic alternative to a fully capped LED ceiling; lighting fixtures are mounted into the ceiling and either pixel-mapped from environmental video, or controlled as individual fixtures.

Fully Capped Ceiling
with Automation Control

A fully capped ceiling with the addition of automation screen control enables a fully immersed lighting environment, in particular when paired with mobile LED Wild Walls.
