About RIG21

RIG21 is a virtual production studio connecting great ideas, sustainable development, and commercial production with the help of new digital production methods.

Founded by Christian Faber and Thomas Lydholm in Copenhagen, the studio works after their motto “Small Step, Giant Leap”, experimenting with virtual production in film, animation, and everything in between. With the help of real-time technology, their ambition is to create and facilitate film production faster, more creatively, cheaper and in a far more sustainable way than what is being done today. Virtual production allows for a far more effective recording period compared to normal productions, since most decisions can already be made in pre-production with the help of 3D estimates of set building, camera sequences and more.
