A Virtual Production Glossary launches today at, through a collaboration between the Visual Effects Society, American Society of Cinematographers and individuals from the community, with support from Epic Games and Netflix.

Three-time Academy Award-winning visual effects supervisor Rob Legato, a member of both ASC and VES who contributed to the glossary, relates, “The pandemic has sped up the demand to work together while not under the same roof. Simple creative questions can be answered easily and visually using shared screens via video conference, and the interactivity that virtual production can afford speeds up the creative decision-making process. Having the Virtual Production Glossary as a resource will help minimize miscommunications associated with the terms that define many of these newly emerging processes and technologies.”
