Nickelodeon AR Series - Meet the Voxels

Augmented Reality Going Mainstream

Deadline Hollywood

This marks Nickelodeon’s first project that will use its use of cutting-edge virtual cinema technology, including real-time full body and facial performance capture, which takes innovative and immersive storytelling to another level.
Meet the Voxels takes kids behind the scenes of a video game world and follows a family of video-game characters, the Voxels, on their adventures on-and-off-duty. The family members are:  Hunter, the 13-year-old star of a laser-tag video game; Maude, a 16-year-old girl fighting to pop as many bubbles as she can;their younger brother Cody who has not found his video game calling yet; Mom, a popular street fighter in her game; and Dad, a ’90s-era classic console game character who quit the business years ago. All the characters currently have working names. Nothing is set in stone yet as the series is still in development.
“Our vision is to take the real-time technology we’ve been exploring in the Lab and marry it with a creative concept that connects with kids and their passion for video games,” said Young. “We designed this next-gen animation workflow and filled it with characters who can exist naturally across multiple platforms from day one.”
