Context / environment
VPH studios allowed the production of the movie “Les Gars Sûrs” realized by Louis LETTERIER, Mandarin producer and distributed by Netflix.
Louis LETTERIER is a French director and producer, mainly known for his blockbusters (The Transporter 1 & 2, Danny the Dog) and American films (Clash of the Titans, The Incredible Hulk and Now you see me).
The director and the production team have the ambition to make their film, an action that is as similar to reality as possible so that the viewer has new sensations.
The XR technology on this project was used in order to record various scenes: action, chases, scenes in a supermarket. The use of dubbing did not make these scenes realistic, as there were no real action scenes. The main actors could take part in the action scenes and could live the scene live, which made their acting more real and alive. Following the use of LED screens, one of the major advantages of this technology is the reduction of time and budget in terms of post-production because the shots could be indoors as well as outdoors : cliffs in the south of France, road shots, disused factories.
So in the same place, the director could shoot several scenes from totally different place.
