E-learning and edutainment

Digital cinematography and visual effects (VFX)

Rapid advancements in technology now permit shooting video on the same camera backs used in photography. The concept of a camera is changing as computer-driven sensors with optical lenses eclipse tradition film technique by surpassing them in quality and lowering the cost of production by using a completely digital workflow.

Taking advantage of a smaller footprint and less equipment setup, our quality is comparable to cameras costing 10X more. Advancements by RED (www.red.com) and the Canon 5D Mark III allow low-light guerilla filmmaking captured from multiple camera angles, facilitating post-production editing and ensuring we get the shot. The possibility of using a 5K plate and shooting up to 120 FPS bring feature-film quality to a lower corporate and independent film price point.

Game development

We see this multi-billion dollar industry converging with more visual storytelling and stronger plot lines. When most AAA titles costing above $40 million dollars to create, developers are at ever increasing risk. But the industry is seeing itself transform. The use of third-party game engines such as Unity is promising lower risk, cost, and size of development teams.

We can help you bring unique titles to market, breaking away from First-Person-Shooter types and offering a wide range of innovative games experiences and edutainment. Our aim is to leverage our vertically-integrated team approach to bring visually stunning and entertaining content to the iOS, Android, Xbox One, Wii, PC, and Mac platforms.
