What is Virtual Production?

The term “virtual production” is an umbrella-term for techniques that allow filmmakers the ability to interact with the digital process in the same way they are used to interacting with the live-action process, as a means towards creative problem solving.

Techniques include world capture (location/set scanning and digitization), visualization (previs, virtual camera), performance capture (mocap, volumetric capture), simulcam (on-set visualization) and interactive lighting (including In-Camera VFX).

At Netflix, we see virtual production as an approach to production that connects all parts of the production process (pre through post), and requires an advanced culture of planning.
