NantStudios and Impossible Objects are excited to launch a new demo film for Polestar, a fully electric car company, which was built entirely in Unreal Engine by Impossible Objects and serviced by NantStudios and its virtual production team to showcase the limitless potential and capabilities of virtual production.

NantStudios is a full-service virtual production company specialising in LED stage build outs, virtual art creation and onset operations.
