New York City, NY - The synergy of innovation and creativity took center stage in New York as 4Wall Entertainment joined forces with ZeroSpace and disguise, to deliver an unprecedented Virtual Production Accelerator training program this month. 

Located at ZeroSpace's state-of-the-art production facilities in Brooklyn, the 4-day hands-on training program provided an unrivaled learning environment. Participants marveled at the cutting-edge infrastructure and resources at their disposal, enabling them to unleash their creativity and unlock the full potential of virtual production.

Mathew Leland, VP of Special Projects at 4Wall Entertainment, expressed his enthusiasm for this pioneering collaboration. 

"We were truly amazed by the diverse array of professionals who signed up for the program," he said. "From seasoned filmmakers looking to expand their skill set to emerging talents eager to make their mark in the industry, the passion and dedication of every participant were evident throughout our time together."

Leland emphasized, "We firmly believe that the skills and insights gained during the VPA will serve as a powerful foundation for their future endeavors. Armed with newfound knowledge and creative vision, these talented professionals are well-equipped to shape the future of storytelling and revolutionize the entertainment industry."
