Digital backlot

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A digital backlot (also known as a virtual backlot) is a motion picture set that is neither a genuine location shoot nor physical (i.e. hand-built) sets on the soundstages; the shooting takes place entirely on a stage with a blank background (often a greenscreen) that will have an artificial environment put in during post-production. It is often used in futuristic films to achieve what would otherwise be too expensive or outright impossible to build as a real set.

Notable films[edit]

Among the first films to introduce the technique was Mini Moni the Movie by Shinji Higuchi in 2002, predated by Rest In Peace by Stolpskott Film (2000).[1] Others include:



  • Tribes of October[2]
