StoryFutures Academy Virtual Production Training & Research
Delivered by the National Film & Television School and Royal Holloway, University of London
We support training and research on live productions, including on-set workshops, professional placements, industry masterclasses, and behind the scenes videos exploring VP techniques. This has included working with the team behind Fireworks, a short film directed by double Academy Award winner Paul Franklin, and produced by BAFTA winner Annalise Davis.

We deliver industry-facing skills labs, both as remote ‘introductory’ sessions for those making their first steps into VP, as well as in-person, in-depth sessions focussing on the areas of Directing, Producing and the Virtual Art Department, which are hosted at our new LED Volume, built with support from Enterprise M3 LEP.
Research underpins all our activity, enabling us to share insight from a range of production and R&D initiatives. Our interim Virtual Production Skills Report identifies key skills requirements for creative companies to thrive. Meanwhile, our Virtual Production R&D Discovery Pilots enable SMEs to build important relationships for long-term R&D collaborations.
VP Futures is a new and innovative partnership delivering a package of targeted virtual production training, development and production support for the creative screen industries in the UK. The programme is run by StoryFutures Academy and Future Screens NI, and is supported by Epic Games and Industrial Light & Magic.
