HeadQ is the first Dutch Virtual Production team outside the broadcast industry.
We help to realize productions or shots that are impossible to do with traditional production
methods, and / or high production value content with almost limitless flexibility in versioning. We have a permanent team working with a network of technical and creative talent. A close co-operation with our partner Mo-Sys in the UK, guarantees continuous support and access to the latest developments in Virtual Production.
With over 25 years of experience in post production HeadQ’s focus has always been to tell our customers’ stories with the highest quality video editing, colour grading and sounddesign. We’ve done this for movies, tv-shows, commercials and corporate productions.
We draw on that experience for our new Virtual Production studio, workflow and pipeline. We are very excited about the possibilities of Virtual Production and have decided to continue as HeadQ Virtual & Post.
Vision & mission
Virtual Production has been around for a while, and has been used successfully in high end movie production and virtual sets in broadcast environments. But technology evolves and we believe NOW is the time for VP to be a feasible production method for the rest of us.
VP is real-time compositing of camera RAW output with CGI backgrounds and set extensions.
The 3D position of a camera is tracked and together with the lens data piped into a workstation that is running Unreal Engine.
This allows us to combine live action with photorealistic 3D environments in real-time.
Our mission is to continuously expand our knowledge, experience and team, so we can become the no.1 Virtual Production Hub of the Netherlands.
Every production needs a careful analysis to ensure it will be of the highest quality, within budget and meeting the deadline. Using an expanding database of freelance talent in real-time VFX and Virtual Production, it is our job to find the most efficient matrix of creativity, time, crew, technology and budget, managing expectations but exceeding them where we can.
We have a130 m2 in-house stage with a 5.2 m high acoustically treated ceiling. A soft lit 180 degree green infinity wall, specifically built for Virtual Production, is at your disposal directly. If you need a bigger stage, we can arrange that. Our camera tracking system is portable and can be used in bigger spaces, providing it meets our specs. Outdoor shoots are also possible.
Because we record all the separate layers – the final composite, the camera output and the tracking data – we can work on the edit for you, polish the composite if needed, render out different versions of the virtual environment, take care of colour correction and grading, sounddesign and mix.
Green screen dry hire
Our green screen studio is also for rent without our VP equipment. The basic green screen studio is equipped with some general soft light. HeadQ can facilitate extra light, rigging, jib, camera, props, catering or whatever else is needed. Just contact us about the possibilities.
