The drama from Dark creators Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar, set aboard a steamship in 1899 headed from Europe to the United States, will feature an international cast from European countries including Spain, Denmark and Germany speaking in their native languages. It will be filmed at a state of the art virtual production facility at Babelsberg Studios in Germany. "The stage, similar to the tech notably used on Disney’s The Mandalorian, is 75ft across and 23ft tall, with 4,500 sqft of shooting space," Deadline says of the very expensive facility. "It is surrounded by a dynamic LED backdrop that is rendered in a video game engine (Unreal Engine) in real-time, moving with the camera to simulate a realistic background and sky that creates the illusion of shooting outdoors. Because the whole process is captured in-camera, with effects added in real time, the technology eschews the need for green screen and drastically reduces the post-production process."
