The Volume

The Volume is a new visual effects technology being used on The Mandolorian as a replacement for green screen. It uses huge LED displays to create a stage set, with lighting and colour being controlled and adjusted in real time. I love seeing how much human craft and artistry goes into each shot to make it look realistic. It’s a pity that the better VFX people do their jobs, the less we notice because it just looks right.

Watching this has me wanting to go back and watch this show again, but focus on taking in the visuals rather than just the story and characters.
