Hollywood's Alternative Soundstage
Imagine shooting a film on location in Tokyo, Paris, and London… all without leaving a soundstage in California. Each environment is digitally rendered in such detail that you can place lights, move cameras, and film on the virtual set just as you would a physical one.
