April 29, 2024 • 2 minute read

DNEG 360 offers state-of-the-art, end-to-end pre-production, virtual production, and development services, and two of the world’s largest LED volume stages.

We are thrilled to announce DNEG 360 - combining Dimension’s expertise in realtime production with DNEG’s world-leading visual entertainment services.

Alongside the launch of DNEG 360, we have released an exclusive behind-the-scenes feature: ‘The Evolution of Virtual Production’, to showcase our advanced virtual production techniques and advancements.

Our initial joint venture with DNEG began in February 2021, and today DNEG 360 expands this partnership to include visualisation, virtual production, content creation, and development services.

This expansion offers clients an end-to-end service and a seamless transition through development, pre-production and virtual production into visual effects and post for feature film and episodic projects, advertising, music videos, and more.

DNEG 360 operates two of the world’s largest LED volume stages, at studios in London and Rome. The London studio offers two stages: Stage One features an LED volume with 1600 panels making up a 20m x 8m curved LED wall, with four wild walls, and a retractable LED ceiling; Stage Two is set up for performance, vehicle, and volumetric capture. The team’s second LED operation is situated at the world-famous Cinecittà Studios in Rome, utilising a 24m x 8m LED volume with a LED ceiling and a 25m rotating platform deck to allow for quick repositioning of sets.

Since our partnership with DNEG, we have produced a number of high-profile projects, including ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender' (Netflix), ‘Masters of the Air’ (Apple TV+), ‘Those About To Die’ (Amazon Prime Video), ‘Here’ and ‘Bullet Train’ (Sony Pictures), ‘The Muppets Mayhem’ (Disney+), and many others.

“DNEG 360 is the only end-to-end, real-time powered service provider operating at this kind of scale anywhere in the world. Our experienced and talented team has delivered thousands of shots and over 800 virtual production shoot days.”

Steve Griffith

Managing Director of DNEG 360 and Dimension Studio

“The work the DNEG 360 team is delivering is second to none, and the advances we are making in realtime technologies and virtual production techniques are both creatively exciting and game-changing in terms of the opportunities for clients."
