Although this expansion is across the board with all operations to increase, the new floor is primarily a virtual production space for both Nvizage, the previsualization division, and Ncam, the marker-less tracking system that enables live previsualization of environments, set extensions and CGI elements, directly in-camera while shooting. The floor will also be home to a motion capture area.
In the past year, the group has doubled in size and recent credits include two critically acclaimed and multiple award-winning award releases: Gravity (Warner Bros.) and Captain Phillips (Sony Pictures) as well as the soon-to-be-released Muppets Most Wanted (Disney).
Through Nvizage, Ncam, Nvizible and Nhance, the Ngroup has the capacity and experience to produce the full range of digital effects. Providing a greater degree of responsiveness, flexibility and creative control to filmmakers, the Ngroup brings both creativity and technology to a project.
Managing Director of Nvizible Nic Hatch commented: “I’m really proud of what we have achieved, the business is continuing to thrive and it’s great that we are bucking the trend in the current economic climate. We are all working incredibly hard to meet the demand for all our services and by expanding our business will be able to work more efficiently and continue to create superb VFX that exceed our clients’ expectations.”
