Vancouver, BC

Just as Vancouver’s tax credits and talent lure many stellar productions to this growing film location, TNG Visual Effects has embraced the new territory by opening a Vancouver office supplying the quality service TNG’s clients have come to expect: an elegant and cost effective solution serving the industry’s 3D Photogrammetry needs.

Located at Park Place, 666 Burrard Street, Suite 500 in Vancouver, B.C. the new location makes three, joining the corporate office in Los Angeles and the Louisiana office next to Pixel Magic at 537 Cajundome Blvd. Ste #132 Lafayette, LA 70506. A Toronto office will open soon and is already accepting clients.

TNG Visual Effects delivers a photo-realistic digital model applicable to film, television, video game productions and more. The process is fast and efficient and for the client, is literally as simple as standing there. Offering scanning services for characters, vehicles, and interior/exterior architecture, TNG’s expert technicians scans the subject, their artists’ fine tune the model and textures, confirm the strict quality control standards are met, then the file is FTP’d to the client. The process is overseen by Founder and President Nick Tesi, who brings over 28 years 3D scanning experience to the table.

Completely mobile, TNG brings this technology to your door anywhere in North America within 24 hours, with additional services and locations planned for the near future. “As the company grows,” says Tesi “we continue to build our service, and in the interim customers will get our full size service and quality in Vancouver with local service and tax credits.” Tesi’s dedication to the craft has built an impressive client list, including Fox, Summit Entertainment, Evergreen Productions, HBO, Stargate Studios, Acne Media, Blur Studios, THQ, Midway, Sony, 2K Sports, Bioware and EA.

5 Ways to Prep for a 3D Scanning Session

Preparing for a 3d scan is a breeze. Production life however is more chaotic because of the many scheduled activities. The right people must be available and things must be synchronized.

Here is a list we put together to help the process run smoothly:

1. Have a Visual Effects person on site with the talent with a detailed list of what needs to be scanned, as well as someone from Wardrobe to ensure they have the correct outfit that will match the scene. Determine if the talent needs their face, head, and/or full body scanned and how each part needs to be scanned: do jackets need to be open, do zippers need to be zipped up or down, does the clothing need to be layered, will their caps/masks need to be scanned separately, should jewelry be on or off, will there be any other props that need scanning? This will make sure the final product looks correct and will eliminate any back and forth during final quality control.

2. Determine if facial expressions will be needed. Will the final product need the use of blend shapes or should just a neutral pose be used for the scan?

3. Consider briefing the talent on what will be scanned. Most are OK whether they know or not, but on occasion a talent has just come out of hair and makeup and the last thing they want to do is put a wig cap over what took hours to create.

4. Coordinate the timing. What are the expectations? Always add additional time as a buffer for unexpected events and situations.

5. Prep for the scanning crew. Their needs are typically small, however it is helpful to have a table for computers and cameras, electricity, some chairs, and a certain amount of room to do the scanning.

As you can see there is not a lot of overhead, but when there are a lot of things going on at the same time, this can be more difficult than it needs to be. If done with minimal man power and some planning, it will be an easy operation. Good luck with all of your projects.
