Lola Visual Effects specialises in changing the onscreen appearance of a character and also creating an environment that allows them to project the face of a hero actor onto a body double, using a custom-built rig called The Egg. Their work can be seen in blockbuster movies such as Guardians of the Galaxy, Top Gun Maverick, Barbie, Game of Thrones and many more.
The egg uses eight RED cameras shooting 6K and six Sony cameras shooting at 4K, all uncompressed and running at 48 frames per second. Needless to say, storage performance, capacity and security are important considerations for their work. Find out why the iodyne ProData is their storage solution of choice in the video below.
