The Technology

Overview

What used to require extensive location shoots, expensive set design and construction, and/or exorbitant special effects production, can now be done in the comfort of our Nashville studio, without the headaches of the past.

As the first Nashville-based, full-service LED virtual production studio, Arc Studios enables filmmakers and content creators to capture anything they can imagine on video, using state-of-the-art technology.

From cutting-edge robotic motion control equipment and in-camera visual effects (ICVFX), to over 1,000 sq. ft. of LED volume, to working with the top 3D and Extended Reality (xR) professionals in the business, we have the equipment, the software, and the partners to capture your lightning in a bottle.

What can all of this actually look like for your project? There are many incredible benefits to virtual production, but let us cover just a few.

Benefits

Pre-Visualization

See a near-perfect end result of your lighting and location before we begin shooting one second of video.

Location Adjustment

Change your location with the press of a button and adjust your environments with ease … something that could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars on a physical set (or might not even be possible).

Lighting Control

Switch from day to night time shots in just seconds and hold a “golden hour” shoot for as long as you want … instead of the mere minutes available in natural light!

Faster Turnaround

You’ll experience a much faster turnaround time of your final files, due to the reduction (or, sometimes virtual elimination) of post-production processes.

How do we make all of this possible and available to you? These are the incredible technology partners we’ve engaged with to make Arc Studios the creative incubator you’ve been dreaming about …
