Filmed at Garden Studios in London using a state-of-the-art virtual production stage, the Future Lions seminar is one of the first films produced in the UK using LED and Unreal Engine technology. This transitions the viewer seamlessly into an immersive 3D Future Lions world to witness the live action of the finale unfold.
Virtual production uses 3D CGI modelling and precision camera tracking to film live action and computer graphics in real-time. With no imagery created in post-production, live action footage is captured within a pre-visualised virtual world.
The LED backdrop projected the 3D animated Future Lions environment showcasing rotating bricks and the Future Lions trophy, creating an immersive world. Shot on RED cameras that paired imaging sensors to a camera fixed to a dolly, it produced a gliding movement that gave the illusion of scale and depth, creating a stunning parallax effect embedding the virtual environment into the stage.
