A Day in the Life – #324 November 2022

This month, we get a peek into the lives of Pete Divers (Head of VFX) & Deanne Czarnecki (Head of Studio), the co-founders of Australia’s virtual production studio Fika Entertainment.

8 a.m.  Our day starts with the team arriving at our new Burleigh Studio on the Gold Coast. Sometimes we need a little VR/AR to hide our true images on mornings when the coffee hasn’t quite kicked in!

8:05 a.m.  Dee and I jump straight into video calls and review the day’s schedule. No two days are ever the same, but what’s not to love in a world where you have the power to create anything!

8:30 a.m.  The team is already hard at work on today’s daily shoot and run schedules, as well as all rigging and equipment set up.

9 a.m.  The performers arrive and are dressed in their superhero attire … I mean, motion-capture suits.

9:30 a.m.  Test and adjust time, to ensure all the mo-cap action is interfacing correctly with the animated worlds we’ve created, using our Alchemy pipeline and virtual production techniques.

10 a.m.  Not sure if I should call Dee and I puppet masters, wizards or sorcerers, but I definitely feel like all of the above.

3 p.m.  Time for editing and post production. Thankfully with our revolutionary tech solutions, this is far less tedious and time consuming than traditional animation.

4 p.m.  That’s a wrap as they say! Let the cast and crew’s pack up begin.
