Volumetric filmmaker Abel Ferrara scoops a Lumière Award for Missing Pictures

Virtual reality experience Missing Pictures: Birds of Prey took a prestigious Lumière Award at the Stereopsia immersive forum in December. 

This is a second annual Lumière win for Dimension’s work, following last year's accolade for "Best Use of AR in a Live Broadcast" with Madonna, alongside Reflector Entertainment, Boy Toy, Microsoft, and Sequin AR.

Missing Pictures: Birds of Prey is a production of Atlas V, Arte France, Albyon Studio, BBC, Serendipity Films, PTS, TAICCA and WildFang Films. It features a volumetric capture of punk filmmaker Abel Ferrara, produced by Dimension Studios using Microsoft Mixed Reality Capture technology. The VR documentary tells the stories of incredible ideas for films that have never seen the light of day, using a combination of original animated artwork and volumetric video of the filmmakers themselves.
