“To create ‘Inside the Boys’, we needed to create a polished virtual world that paid homage to the aesthetic of the original ‘The Boys’ series. We wanted a solution that enabled on-set spontaneity, and minimal post-production to help us deliver the series in a four-week time-frame.
Notch’s sandbox qualities and strengths in real-time animating suited Inside the Boys. Honestly, it was quite brilliant. Combining Notch and TouchDesigner, we were able to change the virtual environment and surprise viewers by triggering effects like lasers and flames on cue. The immersive and dynamic lighting is just stunning – plunging The Boys hideout into darkness and then flooding it with the flash of ‘Starlights’ energy blasts. We were able to add an extra dimension to this by linking our on-set lighting fixtures and SkyPanels to our Notch scenes. This feature enabled us to light the talent dynamically together with the scene.”
