(Source: lvbusinesspress.com) Canada-based Avrio Filmworks Inc. opened a filming and production facility in Las Vegas, hoping to attract national and international producers and to capitalize on the city’s brand.

Avrio Studios will offer postproduction capabilities as well as feature Southern Nevada’s largest Cyc, a shooting stage with curved angles used to create scenes with visual effects. Commonly referred to as a “green screen,” this stage lets movie makers digitally add background scenery, moving the action, for example, to the top of the Empire State Building or to the bottom of the ocean. The stage runs 275 linear feet, which according to owner Michael Derbas, is compatible with top Cyc studios in California. The 23,000-square-foot facility is part of the new 100,000-square-foot Avrio Walnut Center.

Would-be director Federico Alvarez, who runs a post-production visual effects house in Uruguay, filmed ‘Panic Attack’ with a budget of just $500 in his free time.

The five minute clip – which he then uploaded to YouTube – shows an invasion of Montevideo by giant robots and had special effects which could rival many big budget movies.
