Matchmove, sometimes also referred to as Camera Tracking is known as 'the invisible art'. A highly accurate recreation of the camera movement from set is DFFX's goal to provide. Character matchmoving is a technique that we can also provide. DFFX can also go on location and recreate an accurate to-scale representation of the set using a variety of techniques.

Previz, short for previsualization, is a collaboration between a filmmaker and a group of artists to create preliminary versions of shots or sequences, typically using 3D animation tools and virtual environments. Essentially, it is the process of conceptualizing and improving a project in its developmental stages, before the final endeavor is attempted. Previs allows filmmakers to explore creative ideas, plan technical solutions, and share a vision for efficient production. The talented artists at DFFX will put your ideas in motion, equipping you with a high-quality video to successfully pitch your project to other industry professionals.
