In line with VA’s vision, Cassandra, with her team of experts and partners, combine the latest technological revolutions as AI, VR, blockchain technology, and volumetric capture with cinema techniques and acting methods. In the Virtual Acting Studio, it’s all about experimentation to find the answers to challenging questions related to the integration of humans and technology, and the transition from the physical human to the virtual one (in media).


Experiment 1:
VA method test – testing and developing our methodIn 2018 we developed our VA method, we continue to test it with actors and develop it further. We use our in-house method for acting in immersive media.
Experiment 2:
Virtual actors and traditional cinema: We continue to research the increasingly large role that virtual actors and game engines have in the development of traditional cinema and what new possibilities they may offer.
Experiment 3:
Invisible and intuitive interaction: A very effective technique to employ in immersive cinema is allowing characters to react to the viewer without the viewer having to undertake any action to trigger it. We are exploring what opportunities this provides for the use of AI.
Experiment 4:
Volcap tests: Volumetric acting is an important development in the world of virtual acting and immersive cinema. As part of the Chronosphere program, we are exploring its possibilities and pitfalls, with partners and makers.
Experiment 5:
Volumetric test – natural interaction: In this short VR video we tested how many volumetric models we could use together in one scene. We also tested how we could create natural interaction between the captured actor and the viewer.
Experiment 6:
Photogrammetry: photogrammetry can play an important role in the development of immersive cinema. We are also exploring the integration of photogrammetry and volumetric capture.
