Virtual Movie Production Comes to Australia
LOS ANGELES, July 7, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

--Global Leader Stargate Studios to Open at AMPCO Studios in Adelaide

Australian screen production company AMPCO Studios and Los Angeles-based 
Stargate Studios have opened Stargate Studios Australia, providing cutting-edge 
virtual production technology to assist Australian screen production to get 
back to work and to extend Australia's capabilities for the increase of 
big-budget movie production from the United States.

Stargate Studios is a global, award-winning production company that has been on 
the cutting edge of virtual sets and virtual production for over 30 years.

The studio's proprietary Virtual Backlot technology called ThruView is 
transforming global productions and helping address COVID-19 concerns 
internationally. Using the latest in gaming and Artificial Intelligence 
technologies, combined with decades of experience in virtual sets, a screen 
production that needs multiple real locations for the story can now be more 
easily made in one studio. Movies often need a collection of on-screen 
locations from deserts to snowy mountains to coastlines or city streets, which 
now may be all filmed in one controlled space using the ThruView system. 

ThruView also provides an affordable alternative to not only establish a 
controlled filming environment for COVID-19 protocols but also provides cost 
effective new opportunities to Australian filmmakers to enhance the creative 
boldness of their work. ThruView is a real-time virtual production system that 
greatly enhances creative possibilities for filmmakers and largely eliminates 
the need for green screen and extensive postproduction or visual effects work.

Stargate's ThruView was most recently used on the HBO series Run and will now 
also be utilized on productions in Australia in much the same way that is has 
been used in the United States, Europe and the Middle East by most of the major 
film and television studios, including NBCUniversal, Disney/ABC and HBO in the 
United States and MBC in Dubai and studios throughout Europe.

Stargate Studios Australia will be based out of AMPCO Studios in Adelaide with 
the ThruView system able to be assembled on any "Picture Stage," which can be 
any adapted space in any location across the country.

Stargate Australia's first project will be The Alchemyst, produced by AMPCO 
Studios and the newly formed entertainment Dick Cook Studios Australia. The 
Alchemyst is the first book in the six-novel, multi-award-winning 
fantasy/adventure series The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by famed 
Irish author Michael Scott. Production is slated to begin later this year.
