Two highlights in Dark Matters’ programme for the event.
At the forefront of innovation in the field of virtual production, and as such a winner of France 2030, la Grande Fabrique de l’Image, Dark Matters will be hosting a demonstration of its technologies as part of the Big Shoot XR, a unique Virtual Production demo area set up for the first time by the SATIS organisers. The case study is based on Handicap International’s latest campaign.
The round-table discussion on « The future of film sets between modernity and eco-responsibility » will enable Romain Cheminade to present the technological facilities and top-of-the-range services offered by DMS and its ability to propose Research & Development and innovation solutions that integrate societal and environmental dimensions to make Dark Matters a low-impact, responsible and sustainable studio.
Founded in 2021, Dark Matters is proud to have hosted the filming of Dogman by director Luc Besson, the Handicap International and Paco Rabanne – Parfum Phantom advertising campaigns, the « Modern Jam » video clip by Travis Scott and the Terminal series co-directed and produced by Jamel Debbouze.

Dark Matters is an innovative production complex just outside Paris, specialising in real-time virtual production and hardware and software innovation. The campus offers 15,000 m2 of studios, 6 stages, virtual installations equipped with LEDs and unique support services for analysing the feasibility and use of virtual production technologies during filming. The campus thus offers productions a complete service for making films and series, advertising and television broadcasting. Dark Matters also deploys solutions outside its own studios.
Construction work on our buildings in Tigery was still in progress! Despite this, two studios of 1400 and 2000 m² were used to set up 70% of the film's sets, including the abandoned school and the police station.
Discover the impressive physical sets made possible by a 2,040 m² stage and the explosive virtual environments on LED walls for this magnetic shoot.
With three locations to film - from the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia to the Rwandan genocide, and from the tsunami in Southeast Asia to the earthquake in Haiti and the war in Syria, the production team chose to shoot the film using the latest ground-breaking production technologies.
Dark Matters, specialist in Realtime Virtual Production and located at their 15,000m2 (162,000 sqft) studios South of Paris, is one of the awarded projects of the France 2030 - "La Grande fabrique de l'image" plan. Supported by the French Government, the CNC et la Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations, 68 projects in training, film studios and post-production, out of 175 submitted, were selected in France for a financial support of 350 millions of euros.
