OVERVIEW ENERGY & MATERIALS HEALTH & RESILIENCE WORK & PROSPERITY GOVERNANCE APPENDIX FY22 IMPACT REPORT 22 Westworld How Westworld is leading the way in the Korean VFX industry Founded in 2018 by a group of industry veterans at the forefront of the Korean VFX scene for over 20 years, Westworld is a specialized visual effects company with an impressive portfolio of globally recognized films and TV series. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic making it difficult to shoot on location, interest has increased in virtual production, a filmmaking method in which real-time virtual rendered scenes surround physical actors and props on set using an LED screen during shooting. By quickly and actively adopting the latest tools and techniques, Westworld is now leading the way for virtual production in South Korea. Westworld used virtual production for Sweet Home, a Netflix original series released in 2020 that was shot while monitoring pre-produced digital characters at the studio. The Silent Sea, another Netflix series, also used virtual production methods, this time shooting against a background displayed on an LED screen. “Autodesk Maya is the most fundamental and important Learn more tool we use to perform VFX and CFX work. With Bifrost for Maya’s excellent performance and compatibility, we will be able to create more elaborate, delicate, and realistic visual effects than ever before.” Byeong-geun, Lead Character Technical Director, Westworld Image courtesy of Westworld Image courtesy of Westworld
