Park City Film Studios Completes UVU Motion Capture Studio

Press Release

July 21, 2014

Park City – Park City Film Studios, in conjunction with Utah Valley University, has announced the completion of its technical, digital motion capture stage, now open, at UVU’s Wasatch campus in Heber City.

“We are thrilled to bring the first truly all-encompassing virtual production stage to Utah that provides motion capture, virtual set and production pre-visualization capabilities,” said Greg Ericksen, chairman of Park City Film Studios. “This initial virtual stage is just a small piece of the overall blueprint that Park City Film Studios intends to provide filmmakers in Utah which includes mobile on site services.”

In addition to the stage completion, initial film classes for film students began last week.

Industry veteran Ron Fischer, who originally joined Park City Film Studios to oversee the development and installation of the virtual stage, is conducting a virtual set filmmaking workshop – a class which covers photo reconstruction, HDR spherical panoramas and how they are used to craft virtual sets.

Formerly a technical director at Universal Studios Virtual Stage—Fischer is a leading visual effects artist and expert in the virtual camera and live on-set compositing technologies. His recent credits include “Alice in Wonderland,” “Beowulf” and “Polar Express.”

“We are excited to work with Park City Film Studios and Ron Fischer to provide such innovative technologies and opportunities for aspiring filmmakers,” 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.”
