A new 6,000 square foot LED virtual production innovation lab and production facility has opened its doors in Manchester.

Pathway will also provide virtual production skills and training for filmmakers. The studio is opening in partnership with HP, who will facilitate it with hardware such as Z-series workstations and scalable digital workspaces.

The facility's Trafford Park site consists of a 5k square foot soundstage, in-house virtual art department, make-up, wardrobe and dailies room. The new studio's LED stage technology is powered by ROE Visual Ruby LED panels, Mo-Sys StarTracker, MegaPixel VR Helios processing platform and Unreal Engine.

Pathway's clients already include Arrow International Media.

Amanda Nevill, former BFI chair, has also been confirmed as a member of the company's board.

Co-founder Nathan Newman said: Our doors are open to the filmmakers of the present and the future. LED wall virtual production presents a clear opportunity for filmmakers to be creatively inventive in new ways. We are here to support them on that journey with the provision of market-leading virtual production technology outside of London.
