Joel Edwards, founder and executive producer, Evolve Studios commented, "For us, it's always been about big ideas and bold creative. You've got the cutting edge of technology here, where the biggest, boldest ideas can be executed, you could only pull off with the scope and the scale of a virtual stage like Vū. We're able to use a proper volumetric stage digital set extension with Unreal Engine one day, and the next day we're using it as a massive event space."
Ryan Trommer, Lead VFX + Design, Evolve Studios added, "Any story that you have, you can bring it to life on screen. It doesn't matter if it's in reality or not. By doing real-time 3D environments with a real-time tracked camera, and merging the two into what you see as the background in real-time, in real position. I'm still blown away by the whole thing."
