Avatar Sequels Will Shoot VFX in Real Time
(411mania.com) Lightstorm Entertainment, the production company for James Cameron and Avatar, will be partnering with the visual effects company Weta Digital and software developer Autodesk to make brand new virtual production technology for the upcoming sequels to the hit movie Avatar.
The new software will reportedly combine the use of digital assets in an interactive environment. This will apparently allow for quicker creative decisions regarding visual FX on-set. This will be the most streamlined version of the technology than ever utilized before previously.
According to Cameron, “Creating the virtual production pipeline on Avatar was a groundbreaking process that only enabled us to scratch the surface of what is possible.” He also added, “Together with Autodesk and Weta Digital, we have used the knowledge gained from this first experience to clearly define the ideal process and then develop the technology needed to streamline our workflow. With the resulting pipeline, on the Avatar sequels, I will be able to devote more of my energy to the creative side of the moviemaking process, and dig deeper into all that is possible with virtual production.”
The second, third, and fourth installments in the Avatar franchise will begin shooting simultaneously in the fall.link

Corny but fun tvc with a rabbit-ish creature made by Fido.
The assignment was to create a character that would fit the title of the film: “Bizarre in a bar“ and himself fit inside a chocolate bar. So we created a highly unlikely spokesperson for Corny in this viral: a seductive and slightly overweight german rabbit with a taste for dancing.
