Wow, that's super cool. I should research if we have something like that in the Netherlands, cause that's exactly what I'm looking for. Thank you for your answer!
This is for VFX. I don't think there's any director (or DOP) who would use this for every scene. It's perfect for compositing CGI into your scene; it's overkill for shooting a family drama.
