Digital backlot

A digital backlot (also known as a virtual backlot) is a motion picture set that is neither a genuine location nor a constructed studio; the shooting takes place entirely on a stage with a blank background (often a greenscreen) that will later on project an artificial environment put in during post-production. Digital backlot is more often used in certain genre of films, like sci-fi and comics, in order to achieve what would otherwise be too expensive or outright impossible to build as a real set.

Notable films

Among the first films to introduce the technique was Mini Moni the Movie by Shinji Higuchi in 2002, predated by Rest In Peace by Stolpskott Film (2000).[1] Others include:



  • Tribes of October[2]
