Synapse is Virtual Production
for filmmakers by filmmakers.

Synapse takes a holistic approach to Virtual Production, offering a curated umbrella of services that safeguards our clients and shepherds them through the entire process.


This begins with the very earliest stages of the production chain in the bidding process – breaking down the storytelling needs and how those can be achieved via the host of techniques available to productions today – and continues on through the development of any virtual art and environmental assets required.


We then advise and guide filmmakers through the physical on-set execution of their planned vision and finally help manage any and all needs during post-production.

However, Synapse is so much more than just a virtual production solution. By adopting a “one-stop shop” model, we offer a complete spectrum of services related to and supporting the various facets of immersive visual/storytelling technology, including:



The technologies that drive Virtual Production span multiple industries, sectors and applications. And it is for this reason that Synapse is more than just a company offering an LED stage.

That background enables us to leverage those skills to offer the most sweeping and forward-thinking solution to your specific needs.

Virtual Asset Creation/Util


One of the primary barriers to entry into this exciting facet of film production is obtaining or generating the content that will be displayed on the LED volume screens.


Finding an LED wall to shoot isn’t the issue, it’s all of the hurdles that come with that prospect that can trip up a prospective VP client.

From the ground up, Synapse has curated the Virtual Production experience to encapsulate all aspects of the process under one banner. And all of this process hinges on the most basic of questions: What do we display virtually and what do we need to build physically?


Like the physical art department, the digital content/environments displayed on the volume’s LED panels likewise need a “Virtual Art Department” similarly designing, iterating and delivering these virtual assets, all in concert with the director, producer, cinematographer and production designer to work in concert with each other.
