ABOUT US

Dreamscreen has been a long-standing dream of CEO/Founder Clayton Jacobson who began experimenting with virtual production as far back as 2004 using Playstation backgrounds, greenscreen and foreground performances.

 

By 2009, Clayton had produced and directed a virtual production webseries called Mordy Koots in partnership with Obisoft. He coined the acronym MOGIE (Movie Over Game Integrated Entertainment).

 

In 2016, Clayton built Australia’s first LED virtual production R&D station in his backyard shed. The interest was always there, but it was about waiting for the gaming engines to deliver more dynamic, realistic and performant graphics. By 2020 it was starting to arrest greater attention.

 

Then Covid19 hit, and Clayton’s next feature film fell over due to lockdowns. Virtual production immediately became a priority in a world suffering from a pervasive virus and social distancing. Clayton put a team together and by August that year had formed the company Dreamscreen - named after the tests and R&D undertaken in his shed back in 2016.
