Virtual Production

Disney Pinocchio

Robert Zemeckis and Kevin Baillie embraced virtual production techniquies for the reimagining of Disney's timeless classic Pinocchio.

Dimension was tasked with content management, interactive LED lighting, camera tracking, and Simulcam - enabling the team to marry CG characters and assets with the set builds and frame up shots.

The introduction of a live comp allowed the Director and DP to consider shot composition for elements that historically weren’t introduced to picture until the post production phase.

Delivered over ten weeks at Cardington Studios, UK, this is the most advanced and successful use of Simulcam in film to date.

"We used simulcam to visualize set extensions in real time on set, which allowed the camera team to compose for something far more informative than a bluescreen void!"
