Film Production 3D Scanning Services: Props, Set Dec, VFX, Construction & Costume
Film Production 3D Scanning Services – We have worked in the UK film industry for many years, and have produced high accuracy 3D scans and 3D prints for many well known film productions. The 3D scans we produce are used for various applications such as: prop making, set decoration, visual effects (VFX), costume effects and set construction elements. In addition to 3D scanning services, we also provide ‘digital to physical’ prop making services, using both 3D printing and CNC milling technologies.
A typical film production application might be a 3D scan of a scale model or maquette, which has been hand sculpted by a production Sculptor. Once the object has been 3D scanned, we are able to produce an accurate physical replica. This can then be re-scaled to any size using either CNC milling or 3D printing. Additionally, we can import the 3D scan into ZBrush (3D digital sculpting software) in order to make any final adjustments. We then output the final physical model using either CNC milling or 3D printing. The production team then handle the final finishing stages to make ready for camera.
The above images show some 3D scans we did for the art department on the last ‘Tomb Raider’ production (a Warner Brothers production). We were retained to provide a variety of different 3D scans (in studio and on location). Some 3D scans were used for VFX sequences as above, whilst others were used for producing actual sets via CNC milling. Here is one memorable scene that shows the use of our 3D scans of Himiko.
A big thank you to Simon, Allen and John for their continued support on the build. A great action adventure not to be missed!
