Versatile Co-Hosts International Cinematographers Masterclass on Virtual Production.

Our newest LED stages hosted a first-of-its-kind masterclass on virtual production with hands-on training for creatives around the globe.

February 10-12, three days after announcing the opening of our new LED volume and film facility, our stages were buzzing with excitement from international filmmakers around the world who were in attendance as both participants and auditors.

The advanced curriculum headed by The Canadian Society of Cinematography was developed by Philip Lanyon, csc, Director of Photography for Star Trek: Picard, Star Trek: Discovery, and Netflix’s Frontier, in conjunction with Buckethead creators, Marco Bossow and Andy Brown of Transmute Pictures.

“Hosted in the magnificent Versatile Studios, and the result of a unique and committed partnership among industry partners, the Masterclass also shows the commitment of the CSC and its partners to virtual production training in an ongoing way.”
– Susan Saranchuk, CEO of the CSC

The CSC is focused on ensuring skilled workers are available to make productions in Canada a success. We were proud to be a part of that initiative along with key partners like Peacemaker Studios, ARRI, William F Whites, Sunbelt Rentals, and IATSE 669. Vancouver is well on its way to advancing some of the most knowledgeable DPs in virtual production.
