January 14, 2014


Park City – Park City Film Studios has begun installation of its newly acquired digital motion capture and virtual stage, a key part of the studios’ planned technology platform. The filmmaking technology will be among the new studios’ first facilities open for client use during 2014.

"The motion capture, virtual sets and production pre-visualization capabilities of this digital media creation platform are important to our technology strategy for Park City Film Studios,” said Greg Ericksen, chairman of Park City Film Studios. “The platform provides our clients with a comprehensive virtual filmmaking capability.”

“The sound stage is another step forward in our ongoing effort to create the top advanced digital media program in the world,” said Michael Savoie, Utah Valley University dean of Computer technology. “Our collaboration with Park City Film Studios means the next generation of digital artists will have a home where education, research, development and commercialization of ideas and vision can occur.”

As part of the digital stage acquisition, entertainment industry veteran Ron Fischer joined the studio team to direct installation and development of the virtual stage technology.

Fischer most recently acted as technical director for Universal Studios’ virtual stage. His film credits include Polar Express, Beowulf and Alice in Wonderland

He is among a group of Hollywood professionals exploring the cutting-edge of virtual filmmaking techniques including virtual sets, motion capture, Simulcam and the like.
