Pixomondo Constructs ‘Virtual Production Studios’ in Toronto
October 2, 2020 – The Mandalorian and Greenland VFX outfit Pixomondo (PXO) has begun construction on one of Canada’s first ‘virtual production studios’ in Toronto. The facility, scheduled to be completed by the end of 2020, will be overseen by PXO Toronto/Montreal Head of Studio, Mahmoud Rahnama. The company has designed a modular smart stage that includes multiple Toronto-based layouts.
The stages will be available for shoots, and equipped with on-set PXO personnel for productions using the company’s 3D environment creation services. Virtual production includes virtual scouting, remote collaboration and the use of LED technology for “in-camera” visual effects. The structure allows for adequate social distancing of crews, reduced travel and for a range of production departments to collaborate virtually. PXO says it has already secured interest from a number of U.S. and Canadian productions to book the stage, beginning in early January 2021.
Pixomondo is an international visual effects company with a global network of studios in Los Angeles, Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Beijing and Shanghai.
Pixomondo offers 24/7 visual effects production and supervision, CG character creation, 3D animation and pre-visualization for the feature film, television and commercial industries.
