VP & GM Space Technology
Felix & Paul Studios Space (a division of Felix & Paul Studios) focuses on telling extraordinary immersive stories set in the world of spaceflight. We are the only NASA-approved studio with the capacity to film in ultra-high-definition 3D, 360° virtual reality aboard – and outside – the International Space Station.
End-to-End Immersive Media Productions
We offer end-to-end creative, operational, and technological expertise to create engaging and spectacular content that can be experienced on any screen and immersive media device including mobile, television, cinema, fulldome, virtual reality and augmented reality – for both digital and out-of-home distribution.
Our Hollywood-caliber content and production capabilities can be used for:
2D/16:9 and 3D/360° experiences
Immersive training (virtual reality, mobile, desktop)
Documentation or operational awareness using highly detailed footage.
State-of-the-Art ISS and Outer Space Cameras
We designed and engineered our cameras for image capture both inside (IVA) and outside (EVA) the International Space Station at the highest possible level of definition. With minimal on-site operations, the cameras produce highly versatile footage that is usable for 2D, 360, and virtual reality documentation and storytelling.
ISS-IVA Camera Specifications
- 8K 3D-360 image capture
- Engineered for physically constrained locations (various ISS modules)
- Optimized for remote operations; minimal astronaut interventions required to operate
Outer Space Camera Specifications
- 8K 3D-360 image capture
- Engineered for vast locations with radical lighting, temperature variations and exterior hazards (outer space)
- Designed for remote operations
- Attachable to the Canadarm2 for crane-like movements
Felix & Paul Studios’ experienced production team has significant shooting experience in Low-Earth orbit along with years of successful collaboration with astronauts and ground teams to articulate complex shooting schedules and requirements, Our highly automated and lean shooting pipeline is purpose-built to maximize astronaut time and minimize data transfer load, along with proprietary computer vision algorithms for high-fidelity stereoscopic calibration.
Spectacular Virtual Reality and 2D Content for Every Platform
As a pioneer in the field of immersive storytelling, our virtual reality content emulates human perception at a level unmatched in the industry. We have now captured over 200 hours of ultra-high-quality immersive footage usable for operational awareness, photogrammetry, or telling new stories about Space. Our 360° footage can also be cinematically reframed to create amazing 2D content. Finally, our source content can be packaged for multiplatform distribution in virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality, mobile, desktop, fulldome, giant screen, and other formats, including location-based entertainment (LBE) such as THE INFINITE, the world’s largest interactive and collective location-based virtual reality experience that allows visitors to explore a life-sized 3D model of the International Space Station.
