The new EP team brings over 2 decades of experience in the production servicing industry, working on commercials, films, and broadcast, with the likes of CNN Create, JWT, RSA Films. Coming from a physical production background Kamal, and Karim have been exploring alternative solutions to shooting on location for some time. They recognize the complications productions have faced due to the global pandemic that are forcing many to change direction and utilize technology, with OSF technologies they can get the best results within their budgets whilst keeping their cast and crews safe.

OSF technologies enable them to maximise their creativity on the studio floor by creating a space that creatives can visualize and interact with in real time, whilst providing the highest quality end product possible, and removing the need to go on-location. Now leading a global team of VP Crew the duo have their work cut out as OSF On-Set Support™ crews are in demand on sets world-wide.

The 2 EP’s will officially start operations from the beginning of 2020’s autumnal equinox, although unofficially they are already on the ground ready to help with any virtual production inquiry.
