Park City – PARK CITY FILM STUDIOS began 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,” says 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,” says Michael Savoie, Utah Valley University dean of computer technology.
