Dolphin Image--an Orlando-based film studio founded in 2018 by Delphino Huang and several Full Sail University alumni--has partnered with ARwall, a Los Angeles-based large-scale interactive technology company. Dolphin Image recently closed a $2 million seed funding round to enter into a strategic partnership with ARwall and to develop ARwall’s augmented reality (AR) motion picture effects tools.
The ARwall Effects System generates real-time CGI effects using a LED “smart wall,” allowing filmmakers to capture VFX in-camera, without the need for a green screen or excessive post-production; this matches Hollywood-grade VFX without the Hollywood cost. This technology allows studios like Dolphin Image to streamline their filmmaking process and budget, and turn their focus toward creating compelling stories. The ARwall and Dolphin Image partnership marks an important step toward making dynamic VFX implementations cost-effective, revolutionizing modern film production processes.
Upcoming Dolphin Image projects include its debut, Hired Sword, Sucker Gun, a black-and-white steampunk action film currently in pre-production along with several other projects.
