OPSIS offers a new way to meet the needs of The Creative.

Years of experience have taught us the value of Previs, Techvis and Postvisualization to aid the creative process, allowing visual exploration and most of all, streamlining the process once the production machine gets into motion.

With the tools to take early concept work all the way through physical production into post and finals it comes down to deciding on the right approach for each production.

Every project is different and what is creatively and economically wise for Project A might not be for Project B.

That’s where we come in, working with you on determining what’s best for your project. Is it the all hyped VIRTUAL PRODUCTION PIPELINE, or does your project benefit from some classic stand alone pre and techvis, followed by traditional vfx shot work?

What is 'your' process?
We have all the tools at our disposal and the team to help find the best solution for your project

We do not need your project to conform to our pipeline, we customize one for you!

Thinking outside the box has become the new normal given the times we are living in – embracing that concept and challenging the status quo allows us to align ourselves with those who see this as an opportunity and welcome the challenge – please let us know how we can help!

Opsis (Ancient Greekὄψις) is the Greek word for spectacle in the theatre and performance. Its first use has been traced back to Aristotle‘s Poetics. It is now taken up by theatre critics, historians, and theorists to describe the mise en scène of a performance or theatrical event.  It is also the word used for “sight” or “appearance”.
