41 SPACE RACE
Looking at the facilities charging ahead to set up virtual production stages.
H ere we are: 2022. What’s your New Year’s resolution? Maybe 8K, 12K or beyond? A joke... but as we enter a third year of the pandemic, a little laugh wouldn’t go amiss. Our duty at Definition is to entertain, inform and inspire – and in this jam-packed issue, we’ve got some fascinating features to get you through the January slump. Fans of horror (I use this word lightly) will be pleased, as we pick apart the cinematography in Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci and Netflix’s love-to-hate series You – and, as a post-Christmas treat, our usual two production stories become three, with a delve into Squid Game ’s set design. Continuing our popular round table series, we focus on the future of virtual production. We also get mathematical about codecs, and untangle sets, with the latest wireless gear. Definition has always been about looking towards new technology – but it’s also important to celebrate what has been, because it’s only with practice and experience that innovations emerge. DEPUTY EDITOR Chelsea Fearnley
