How Recon's LiDAR Reached New Heights of Dynamic Film-making

Every so often you work on projects that are fun, rewarding and definitely at times put you outside of your comfort zone. Working with GSR Productions and the Locations and Art departments on The Lord of The Rings - The Rings of Power was definitely one of those experiences. Turning some of New Zealand's most scenic landscapes into digital representations saw us travelling to some incredible spots that we had no idea existed.

Often combining ground or air-based LiDAR with high resolution imagery from UAVs our team would turn around survey-accurate digital outputs in the shortest possible time, often overnight. We would witness only pieces of the creative process but could quickly appreciate just how intricately planned and scrutinised the journey is from its original content through to set-building and filming.

Now with Season 1 released on Amazon Prime we're enjoying seeing how our (comparatively tiny) contribution aided the design of some truly incredible sets while also giving us absolute appreciation of how hard people involved in film and television truly work!

Recon’s now involved in another exciting project but as with The Rings of Power we can’t share any details on this one until it’s also been released.
