Lexhag VFX announce launch of virtual production services as part of their visual effects offer
The London and Norfolk-based visual effects studio, best known for their work on all five series of BBCs Poldark and most recently ITV’s Too Close, will offer services across all aspects of virtual production with a focus on supporting LED volume shoots. Services will include planning, techvis, environment capture, plate preparation and stitching, and on-set supervision.
Tom Lewis, Managing Director, explains, “Our preferred approach as a VFX studio is combining traditional practical solutions with cutting-edge visual effects, so virtual production techniques have always been part of our toolkit, but more of our clients are looking specifically at LED volumes as a production solution. So we’re formalising our offer to help make this aspect of virtual production more accessible to clients.”
“We’ve supervised a number of VP shoots and provided VFX plates for in-car sequences, forest fires and nuclear explosions on LED stages with high-end TV budgets”, says Lexhag founder and VFX Supervisor Alexis Haggar. “Using the VFX tricks and practical tools at our disposal, and working closely with highly-skilled people and industry-leading suppliers and stages, we’ve demonstrated that you don’t need a Mandalorian-sized stage to get great results.”
“As a story-first VFX studio, we will continue to put our client’s narrative first and offer the best VFX solution for the challenge at hand. We just can’t help but be excited by the results we’ve had so far on a Virtual Production stage.”
