Reel Virtual

The first virtual production studio to open in New England welcomes DESIGN WEEK attendees and the creative community to a live demo of our studio. (add)ventures, based in Rhode Island, launched virtual production last year and is leveraging the new technology in innovative ways, as well as inventing new processes to maximize the storytelling possibilities. Come and take a tour of the (add)galaxies studio, meet some (add)venturists and make some new friends.
