VFX house Nvizible announced the company’s considerable involvement with UK sci-fi film, Our Robot Overlords, starring Gillian Anderson and Sir Ben Kingsley.
With the nine week shoot underway in Northern Ireland and Isle of Man, Our Robot Overlords is about a gang of children battling an alien robot invasion. As the sole VFX provider, Nvizible will also employ its proprietary technologies Ncam and previsualization tool Nvizage for the film.
The Nvizible VFX team, supervised by Paddy Eason and with Gill James producing, is currently on location in Isle of Man. The work includes fully CG animated robots, flying vehicles, a spitfire plane, environments and explosions.
With previs provided by Nvizage, the production is also using revolutionary production tool Ncam. This piece of specialist equipment enables virtual production through real-time camera tracking, providing live previsualization of environments, set extensions and CGI elements directly in-camera while shooting.
“We are thrilled to be such a big part of this exciting British film,” says Nvizible Managing Director and Our Robot Overlords Executive Producer, Nic Hatch. “Through Nvizible, Nvizage and Ncam we are able to bring the full spectrum of visual effects creativity and technology to the project.”
This is Nvizible’s second collaboration with Grabbers director Jon Wright and producer Piers Tempest.
Other recent projects include The Muppets... Again (Disney), Nobel (Destiny Films), All You Need Is Kill (Warner Bros.) and Carrie (MGM).
