DreamSpace

By | All, Germany, Cologne | No Comments

Project DreamSpace is a three-year EU funded project which aims to combine the work of universities, industry and professionals to produce new and innovative workflows. It is especially focused on virtual production and moving technology processes earlier in the production, such as on set. It is ambitious as it is broad and recently in Germany the team presented their progress at FMX. Some of the technology impressed, some showed promise, but perhaps the most impressive aspect is the power of mixing different academics, industry researchers and actual practitioners together with a reasonable planning horizon. Too often the technology must serve the immediate project, the shot that is directly in front of one, and newer unexplored approaches are left as pipe dreams or as after-hours hobbies, – no so with DreamSpace.
