Francis Ford Coppola will use traditional filmmaking techniques alongside the latest technology for his new film, Megalopolis.

It will be the first feature film to shoot at the newly opened Prysm Stages at Trilith Studios in Georgia, United States.

The Prysm Stage accommodates both physical production, including practical lighting, grip and camera, as well as a state-of-the-art virtual production volume. Along with the new technology available at Trilith, Coppola plans to use new, never-before-seen techniques to shoot the project.

Shooting in an LED volume opens up new ways to create our stories in film, said Megalopolis producer, Michael Bederman. What's unique and exciting about shooting Megalopolis at Prysm at Trilith is that we can marry traditional filmmaking experience, techniques and crew with the most advanced virtual production capabilities in the same space, accessing the best of both the physical and digital options available to filmmakers today.

Written and directed by Coppola, Megalopolis tells how the fate of Rome haunts a modern world unable to solve its own social problems in an epic story of political ambition, genius, and conflict love. The cast includes Adam Driver, Forest Whittaker, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jon Voight and Laurence Fishburne.

Prysm Stages, which is part of NEP Virtual Studios, offers filmmakers the opportunity to use virtual production with a modular stage designed with an open framework for production workflows and colour pipelines that can be customized to any given project.

It is such an honor to be entrusted by Francis Ford Coppola and his team to bring Megalopolis, regarded to be his magnum opus, to Prysm Stages, said Barbara Ford Grant, president, Prysm Stages. He is a legendary filmmaker, and his choice to shoot here is supported by our purpose-built facilities and best-in-class talent who are well versed in supporting the most demanding physical and virtual production needs.
