MPG has two spin-offs:
Labo Mixed Realities AS:
Tomorrow’s technology for visual effects will be developed by LABO Mixed Realities in Norway, in collaboration with the leaders of the European film industry. In modern film production, animated effects are used extensively, to the degree that the audience now expects this as an aspect of large Hollywood productions. In European contexts, animation is used considerably less, due to the smaller budgets, and the fact that digital effects are associated with high risk investments and sizable expenses. Through our development efforts we are bringing to life a product where it will be possible to preview digital effects on set, and we further aim to heighten the efficiency of postproduction work considerably.
