  The workshop for the future of filmmaking enters the second edition

The Erich Pommer Institut (EPI), in cooperation with the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF, is organizing the Virtual Production Lab  for the second time. The workshop will take place in two parts September 6-8 and September 20-22. Applications are now open.

New virtual production and mixed reality production methods combine real footage with VFX elements using real-time rendering engines and LED displays. They are now used not only in blockbusters such as Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, The Mandalorian, Thor: Love and Thunder, or The Book of Boba Fett but increasingly in innovative smaller productions. The focus is on novel iterative and collaborative processes for "in-camera compositing" and the generation of "final-pixel" images during shooting, but it requires entirely new approaches in collaboration.

The Virtual Production Lab provides this revolutionary filming method's basics and core competencies through practical exercises guided by national and international experts from the field and professors from the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF.

Participants can expect a mix of practical exercises, lectures, theoretical knowledge, discussion rounds, and networking. In addition, they can already try out their new skills in the workshop at LEDcave Berlin.

The workshop will be held in English for the first time. It is aimed at international professionals from the film and television industry, e.g., production, editing, camera, directing, and creative technologies. A selection of students from the Film University will also participate in the Lab.

Interested people are invited to the first online info session on July 6.

Applications for the Virtual Production Lab are open until August 2, 2023 here.

As a partner, Netflix supports the Virtual Production Lab.
