Ngroup virtual offerings set for physical expansion
London VFX house Nvizible, part of the Ngroup, is considerably increasing its capacity and expanding its capabilities for virtual production and mocap . The company announced today that has taken on a whole new floor at its Soho base in London.
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 award-winning previsualisation division and Ncam, the marker-less tracking system. The latter enables live previsualization of environments, set extensions and CGI elements, directly in-camera whilst shooting. The floor will also be home to a motion capture area.
The Ngroup comprises Nvizage, Ncam, Nvizible and Nhance and claims to have the capacity and experience to produce the full range of digital effects. In the past year the group has doubled in size and recent credits include two critically acclaimed and multi award winning award releases – Gravity (Warner Bros.) and Captain Phillips (Sony Pictures)- as well as the soon to be released, Muppets Most Wanted (Disney).
“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,” said Managing Director of Nvizible Nic Hatch. “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.”
