Welcome to VP Land!

I know NAB is a few weeks in the dust, but we’ve still got new videos and interviews coming out.

In this VP Land, we recap all the videos we posted about virtual production (plus a few links to other coverage that we couldn’t get to).

We’ve also dive into some new projects coming out with Sora.

Speaking of AI, we’ve got some cool projects in the works with AI on the Lot, which is coming up next week in LA.

Let me know if you’ll be there. And if you’d like to attend there’s a 20% discount code below.

Alright, let’s jump into it!
