At Virtual Resolution HQ we have our very own studio which is an ideal space for photography, film and special projects.
With 3 metre high ceilings and a 2000 sq ft footprint the studio is located next to our production offices and is used by our own team as well as being available to hire. It's kitted out with a 6m x 5m infinity cove, backdrops, make up area, kitchen facilities and much more.
In addition to the studio we also have green screen facilities on site and a HTC Vive demonstration area for clients where they can experience for themselves the possibilities offered by augmented reality and virtual reality technology for marketing and design.
It isn't just about having incredible facilities and technology. We also have one of the UK's best in-house teams of specialist creative artists whose experience in CGI and 3D visualisation has led to the creation of some bold and innovative animation work for global projects.
