Virtual Production 201 (Unreal Engine)


In film and TV, live action and animation production is often a resource-heavy enterprise involving large sets, scores of crews and a big budget to create. But in recent years, there’s been an emerging trend for streamlining production in a novel way that involves a “virtual set.” It's a different world... An Unreal world for production as you read this!

This intermediate VP class will explore the use of Unreal Engine to gather assets to work on a basic VP project using existing (and emerging) VP workflows. Students will learn how to create, use and manage production assets, and how to create scenes across both an actual and digital production environment.

Explored will be uses and techniques of VP for camera, set design, prop design, motion capture and more, including the use of LED walls and simulated environs for scenic design for lighting, color control and the use of highly realistic digital mattes in the brave, new world of virtual production!

Prerequisite:Any of the following: Virtual Production 101, Unreal Engine 101, Previs 101 (Unreal).
