The movie "Collaboration 2: International" (director Lee Seok-hoon), which was released earlier this month, has surpassed 5 million cumulative audiences, continuing its success. In addition to the enthusiastic performances of the actors, the "previsualization" technology, which improved the completeness of the production process, seems to have driven the success of Cooperation 2.

According to the integrated computer network for movie theater tickets, the cumulative number of visitors to Air Conditioning 2 was 5,071,109 (as of the 22nd), surpassing all new foreign currency works and ranking first in the box office. In commercial films, production costs, investment scale, and other productions determine the success.

Directing is an area that encompasses screenplay, camera composition, and actors' emotional lines. Based on the extended reality (XR) metaverse system, Space Elvis, which is equipped with pre-visualization technology in the Netflix movie "Carter" released last month, is receiving positive reviews both inside and outside the industry.

This technology increases the production completeness through pre-planned production simulation, allowing the filming period, production cost, and audience response to be predicted. The pre-visualization technology added to 'Collaboration 2' utilizes Unreal 4, a real-time engine, and its own XR solution 'Xhuttle'.

It can predict high-level action sequences, actors' lines, and fine acting breathing in seconds, reducing additional variables to be filmed and enabling smooth communication between directors, members, and actors in the field.

Park Kyu-min, vice president of Space Elvis, who oversees the pre-visualization and real-time action works of Air Conditioning 2, said, "Based on shuttle and photo scan data, we added various technologies such as sensor linkage technology, motion and facial capture, digital avatar, and virtual stage to maximize production efficiency."

The content industry is paying attention to XR technology used in film production, with the movie "Carter" (Director Jung Byung-gil) topping the top 10 Netflix rankings released on the 10th along with the drama "Weird Lawyer Woo Young-woo."

The Netflix movie "Carter" is a story about Carter (Juwon), who wakes up with a memory loss, successfully completes the mission within a given time, showing various actions from a first-person perspective, and this filming technique allows viewers to experience controlling characters by playing FPS games.

Carter's intense action scenes and unique filming techniques were completed through the pre-biz process of Space Elvis, a domestic XR content company.

Previs is an abbreviation for Pre-Visualization, which means making a temporary edited version of a movie with CG before shooting.Through this, the importance of directing freebies in Hollywood blockbuster films is highlighted as accurate spatial information and camera movements can be grasped in advance, and "Carter" is known to be Space Elvis' first attempt to conduct freebies of all processes as a Netflix domestically produced film with director Jung Byung-gil.

Carter's Free Biz production has the advantage of reflecting the modifications of production in real time using Unreal 4, a real-time engine, and XHUTLE, its own XR solution, and high-level scenes such as motorcycle chase, helicopter action, climbing, and skydiving are also possible.

Park Kyu-min, vice president of Space Elvis, who oversaw the pre-visual work, filming and one-take real-time action work of the movie Carter, said, "Through the advancement of its own solution 'Xhuttle' applied to the movie 'Carter,' it will be a customized service."

Space Elvis, Decaric, Mobile Tech, etc. participate...I'll show you a new type within 2-3 years.

A consortium of six companies organized by XR company Sears Lab (CEO Jeong Jin-wook) signed an agreement on the 8th as the final operator of the 2022 Metabus Platform Development Project promoted by the Ministry of Science and ICT and the Korea Radio Promotion Association in the first half of this year.

The Metabus Platform Development Project, selected by the Sears Lab Consortium, is a project that supports the development of a new type of metabus platform that differentiates itself from existing platforms in various areas such as daily life and economic activities.The total business budget is up to 15 billion won, which will be developed over about two to three years.

The recently selected Sears Lab consortium was evaluated as having the best capability to professionally cover all areas necessary for commercialization of meta-bus platforms that require convergence development, from AI source technology to XR platform and content development, spatial data, and blockchain technology.

It consists of a total of six specialized companies, including XR content company Space Elvis, VR platform company D-Caric, space data company Mobile Tech, blockchain company Community Lab, and graphics company DeepX Lab.Apart from the consortium participants, SK T Mobility, Google Korea, SK Shielders, and Hanyang University will participate as cooperative organizations for the successful commercialization of the project.

The project aims to revitalize a commercial-level platform and open ecosystem that allows participants to freely implement daily life and economic activities within an open platform, allowing users to communicate and interact offline and directly build data, content, and business models.After commercialization of this platform, it is expected to contribute to the development of Korea's metabus industry ecosystem by creating new virtual economic value through the Mirror City platform in various fields such as the government, local governments, and general companies.

Amid intensifying competition among major global IT companies such as Apple, Google, and Facebook to dominate the early global meta-bus market, the project is drawing attention in the market as the government and the private sector lead together at a time when securing a globally competitive meta-bus platform.In particular, the private-led government-supported "creative innovative future platform" discovery project is more meaningful in that it is the largest platform project under the new government's meta-bus policy.

We will utilize about 80 existing customers and partnerships for successful commercialization and actively utilize existing overseas networks for global expansion, said Jeong Jin-wook, CEO of Sears Lab.

Meanwhile, Sears Lab, the organizer of the consortium, successfully launched the world's first augmented reality selfie video app "Lollicam" in 2015, and attracted investment from Y Combinator, which is known as Harvard in the startup world.ARGear, an augmented reality core engine developed with Sears Lab's own technology, is a vision AI (Vision AI) technology-based XR company with about 80 million commercial mobile applications worldwide.
