The companies have designed and will build the volumes in close collaboration with technology partners Brompton Technology, Epic Games, Lenovo, Nvidia and Roe Visual. Two new stages are already under construction in Vancouver and Toronto, and several others will follow in 2022.
The new Toronto stage will be completed in July and is designed for short-term bookings. It’s based at Studio City’s recently completed development at the east end of Toronto’s downtown core, close to Pixomondo and William F. White’s respective Toronto offices and Pinewood Studios.
The new Vancouver stage is under construction at an undisclosed location and is scheduled for completion in September.
As with Pixomondo’s first Toronto stage, the two new volumes will be operated by on-set Pixomondo personnel for all productions, including those using the company’s 3D-environment-creation services.
“We are absolutely delighted to be able to formalize our collaboration with William F. White and their unassailable track record in film and TV equipment rental and studio-property management,” says Jonny Slow, CEO of Pixomondo. “We’re also excited to confirm additional investment in virtual production in Canada and in these state-of-the-art physical production techniques.”
“As leaders in our respective industries, our two companies are a natural fit when it comes to providing a full-service client experience that is truly unmatched in the world of virtual production,” says Garin Josey, executive vice president/COO of William F. White. “This next phase we’re embarking on together has the potential to radically change the production process.”
