MediaTech Hub Potsdam startup Volucap has made it onto the 94th OSCARS shortlist with its development of the special effects for the film “The Matrix Resurrections”.

Volucap was involved in the early development of particularly sophisticated action sequences and visual effects and worked with the Matrix team for a total of two years on the new sequel to the franchise.

Congratulations to the entire team for the success of this project!

About Volucap

The Volucap has been an integral part of the studio lot in Potsdam-Babelsberg over the past three years. The studio was already considered to be a milestone on its opening, and it is the first volumetric production studio worldwide with a resolution of over 600 megapixels.

The initiative was launched in June 2018 after an operating consortium consisting of Cine Technik, Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute, Interlake System, Studio Babelsberg and UFA joined forces. Since then, special camera and software technology has been used here at Volucap to record lifelike, three-dimensional pictures of people, process them digitally and embed them like holograms in a virtual or augmented reality environment. The high camera resolution, in particular, allows for a very detailed, photorealistic three-dimensional recording of people in motion (so-called volumetric captures – volucaps). So did actors Keano Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss as Neo in Trinity become volucaps.
