Fans of Percy Jackson have been anxiously awaiting for more information regarding the promised series for Disney+. Although we haven’t learned much about filming, casting etc, we did get more information about how they they might go about filming the series.
Something they are looking into is the use of the “Rig” video wall technology that we saw in The Mandalorian. WhatsOnDisneyPlus explains the Rig:
The Rig is an immersive and massive 20’ high by 270-degree semicircular LED video wall and ceiling with a 75’-diameter performance space, where the practical set pieces are combined with digital extensions on the screens. Digital 3D environments are created by ILM and played back interactively on the LED walls, edited in real-time during the shoot, which allows for pixel-accurate tracking and perspective-correct 3D imagery rendered at high resolution via systems powered by NVIDIA GPUs. The environments are lit and rendered from the perspective of the camera to provide parallax in real-time, as if the camera were really capturing the physical environment with accurate interactive light on the actors and practical sets

With the pandemic, use of the Rig helps prevent delays is production which is a huge consideration. It does seem like they would have to use a combination of the Rig and physical locations, but we will have to wait to see exactly what the end result will be.
