Netflix’s live-action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender has kicked off production in Vancouver, and the show will be utilizing some notable tech to create its fantasy world.
Netflix says it has partnered with effects studio Pixomondo on a custom-built facility that’s 84 feet across, 28 feet high, and features 23,000 square feet of stage and more than 3,000 LED panels. It’s similar to the virtual sets utilized most famously by Disney on The Mandalorian. According to Netflix, the set “allows for visual effects to be done in real time in camera, combining multiple environments on a single stage.” The company calls it “one of the biggest virtual production volumes in North America.”
