About the event

Are you:

  • A producer or director wanting to see virtual production first hand before taking the plunge?
  • Crew captivated by the tech, have you been on the training, but never got 'hands on'?
  • An ad agency or client considering using virtual production for your next shoot but not sure where to start?
  • A writer, influencer, media owner, podcaster, creative team, Unreal Artist with a simple idea, brief, pitch idea, proof of concept, want to take your podcast to the next level, or an influencer looking to be the next Mr Beast...?

Well if the answer is YES to any of those then do we have the answer for you... These 'all-in-a-day' filming sessions are a chance for directors, producers, scriptwriters, advertising creative teams, DPs, camera ops, clients and influencers to create an ultra short for zero risk and at zero cost... nothing... nada...*

These sessions are designed specifically to be a sandpit for attendees to play in, test ideas, see how shots are created, light sets (on set and virtually) and explore camera movement, while shooting an ultra in the latest hybrid virtual production studio - a combination of LED and green screen virtual production in the same studio space.

With 3 options to participate the day is fully flexible:

  • Crew > For anyone from a traditional or non-traditional filming background. You will be able to light, shot block, direct and capture
  • Observer > For producers, media strategists, creative teams, clients and influencers. You will be able to see first hand and discuss options without the risk of holding filming up
  • Creator > If you're a writer, a CGI/SFX creator, creative team or client who would like to see how an idea can come do life, then this role is right for you. The only constraint is to tell the story in only a handful of shots (see HERE for more details).

A Typical Open Lens Session Preparation morning: Meet the team, plan the shoot, explore the virtual locations, discuss shots, lighting and environments, whilst gaining an understanding of the possibilities available. Shooting afternoon: Turn over time, experimenting shots, virtual set adjustments, using previz and rough cutting to produce an ultra short by wrap

More than just filming, it's a gateway to endless possibilities.

Join us at Morden Wolf and ignite your creative journey.

  • Observer

    We want to share our knowledge and creativity with as many people as possible so we are inviting you to come and be a ‘fly on the wall’ on our shoots, learn, listen and start to understand how shooting using VP works and the differences between a stereotypical shooting day. This opportunity is targeted to all (come and join the fun).

    Can you tell a story in three shots? We want to hear what ideas you would like to test out with the use of VP. Our aim is to showcase the possibilities of VP and help elevate your pitches through giving you visual content to use and market. This will be a collaboration and partnership with Morden Wolf.
