January 2021 saw WASP3D empowering the vision of a Live/Hybrid Virtual Event for The International Film Festival of India (IFFI), originally scheduled as a live event in Goa, but migrated online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Local production company RIG 360 Media Pvt. Ltd created the vision of how the 51st International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa would look. They wanted to host the entire event in a virtual set scenario where guests from various parts of the world would connect to discuss their work and achievements.
WASP3D empowered their vision to host the entire event on the cloud, as a live virtual hybrid event. The event was shot in a small chroma setup using WASP3D VIRTUAL, an all-in-one solution to create an infinite virtual environment. The entire production & PCR operations, including the graphic triggering, camera switching, pan/tilt/zoom of the virtual production was held in the same premises and streamed directly to the IFFI’s OTT Platform.
Speakers from the film fraternity joined in to discuss their work, achievements & showcase their live virtual presentations. Key Guests(like Veteran Director – Shekhar Kapoor, Renowned Filmmaker- Aditya Vikram Sengupta, Co- Chairman CII – Mr. Siddhartha Roy Kapoor and others), were imported from remote locations using the Virtual Conference Integration feature unique to WASP3D VIRTUAL. The multi-video window simulations were overlaid within the infinite virtual environment to resemble a virtual conference system, thereby creating a unique brand value for the internationally acclaimed film festival’s online viewers.
“WASP3D, according to me is a solution based company,” said Rohit Gandhi – Director, RIG 360 Media Pvt. Ltd. “They do not look at the problem as one issue but they understand the Intricacies of small problems that may be associated with handling production processes. They work with you closely to create the final solution to best suit your needs.”
