Volu­cap on 94th OSCARS short­list with Matrix Resurrections

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.
