    3rd February 2014 by Sharde Ahyaee

    Welcome to our first video newsletter of 2014!

    We were a little emotional to leave our old studio this month – but very excited to move to our new one! Squeezing in building work around Mobile Studio jobs, including a project for new client Illumina, was certainly tricky, but more than worth it in the end!

  • VirtualStudio.TV is based in Cambridge simply because that's where all the Directors live.

    Originally it was our goal to set-up another small studio in London, but we quickly realised what our clients really wanted was the ability to create high quality, low cost videos in the comfort of their own offices.

    From Plato to Portal: 3000 Years of Virtual Reality

    6th September 2012 by Lindsey Kennedy

    Ask most people what they think of when you say ‘virtual reality’ and you are likely to get one of two answers: video games or The Matrix. In fact, virtual reality technology is extraordinarily far reaching, playing a major role in providing training to sectors such as healthcare and the military, and providing incredibly diverse uses in everything from architecture to finance.

  • People visiting our green screen studio in Cambridge to make their videos often ask me what to wear before they arrive. It is a very good question to ask because there are a few clothing items and choices that do not mix very well with videos created using a green screen studio.

    When someone stands in front of our green screen we magically (it’s not really magic!) take out all of the green from the image, and replace it with one of our virtual studios. The reason the screen is green (or sometimes blue) is simply because it’s not a colour found in the pigment of our skin. As a result when you remove this colour you will always be left with a person in the shot which is a good start to making a video. If you do wear anything green, part of you will become invisible which isn’t such a good look!

I’d argue that stock footage is so good now that it can only make a production richer, more creative and ultimately, your client happier. Stock footage of course does have to be used sympathetically and blended into a final production piece to be effective – there is no need for space travel in the CEO’s annual video report...
