Abstract [en]

Previsualization is a process within pre-production of filmmaking where filmmakers can visually plan specific scenes with camera works, lighting, character movements, etc. We developed and assess a prototype for previsualization in virtual reality for collaborative purposes where multiple filmmakers can be present in a virtual environment to share a creative work experience, remotely. The costs of computer graphics-based effects are substantial within film production, using previsualization, these scenes can be planned in detail to reduce the amount of work put on effects in the later production phase. By performing a within-group study on 20 filmmakers, our findings show that the use of virtual reality for distributed, collaborative previsualization processes is useful for real-life pre-production purposes. These results provide insights on how to best design collaborative, virtual reality-applications used for remote work, and highlights the pitfalls of certain design choices.

Abstract [sv]

Previsualisering är en process inom filmskapande där filmskapare visuellt kan planera specifika scener med kamerafunktioner, belysning, karaktärsrörelser, etc. I denna uppsats utvärderas en prototyp för previsualisering i virtual reality för samarbete där flera filmskapare kan vara närvarande i en virtuell miljö för att dela ett kreativt arbete i realtid. Kostnaderna för datorgrafikbaserade effekter är betydande inom filmproduktion. I och med previsualisering kan dessa scener planeras i detalj för att minska mängden arbete som påverkar den senare produktionsfasen. Genom att utföra en studie med 20 filmskapare visar resultaten att användningen av virtual reality för distribuerade previsualiseringsprocesser för samarbete är användbart för verkliga scenarion. Dessa resultat ger insikter om hur man bäst utformar virtual reality-applikationer som kan användas för distribuerat arbete och lyfter fram fallgropar inom vissa designval.
