The Scan Truck is a fully self-sufficient 3D scanning studio on wheels! Our custom on-board generator provides enough juice to power a 210 DSLR photogrammetry camera array and a epic sound system! This means that we are able to go to where the production needs us. No location is too remote for The Scan Truck even if we have to pull some old fashioned off-roading to get there! This time we got to shoot for a collaboration between two legendary fashion brands A.P.C. by Jean and Judith Touitou and Brain Dead by Kyle Ng. We drove high up into the mountains to a secret location complete with scenic views of the ocean, a hidden lake and of course an abandoned house designed by Eric Lloyd Wright.
This time we took our Scan Truck Spaceship all the way to the moon with Apple TV’s brand new series “For All Mankind”. This alternative-history series explores “What if Soviet Union succeeded in the first manned Moon landing and space race never ended”. Recreating the surface of the Moon presented an interesting challenge for the visual effects team. LIDAR scanning and lots of photogrammetry was needed to provide set extensions and digital doubles. Our mobile 3D scanning studio was a perfect fit on the Sony Pictures Studios lot. We landed next to the stage and worked closely with Method Studios on providing 3D scans of Joel Kinnaman, Michael Dorman, Jodi Balfour as well as other cast members and even Soviet and US space suits.

The advancements in digital technology are blurring the lines between what’s real and what’s virtual. This transition is proving to have incredible applications especially in the world of entertainment, where the need for reduced costs and while still providing high end results is at an all time high. Being able to recreate environments, people, and performances through the use of virtual production tools is becoming much easier, but still raising many questions in the minds of doubters.

The Call of the Wild was an unforgettable adventure! We deployed our mobile 3D scan studio – The Scan Truck on location over a period of two months. We had a great time working with legendary Harrison Ford, Karen Gillan, Dan Stevens and others. This production was a real endurance test for our hardware because of the large volume of scans and challenging weather conditions. Our rig performed flawlessly! We cannot wait to see this film on a big screen in February 2020!
We were invited to be a part of Brady Bunch history! HGTV called The Scan Truck to restore the broken parts of the famous Brady horse sculpture. We met up with Christopher Knight and the Property Brothers on location at the newly renovated Brady Bunch house. The high fidelity 3D scan was captured using our mobile photogrammetry studio. After the digital restoration was complete, we were able to 3D print the missing parts with our friends at There You Have it 3D. After the final assembly and finishing the horse statue was ready to return home to the iconic Brady Bunch house!
The Scan Truck was called in to bring another vision to life! Sudan Archives came to us with a beautiful vision of herself as a bronze sculpture for her new album cover. We 3D scanned her in a variety of statuesque poses. When we saw the final result we were blown away!
Recently The Scan Truck had an immense pleasure working with Will Smith and his team at Westbrook Media. Knowing the creative and fun-loving nature of Will Smith we could not wait to see what kind of content he will put out using our 3D scans. Will and his team did not disappoint! His campaign with ASICS Onitsuka Tiger takes us on a hallucinogenic trip around the world from the Brooklyn Bridge to the Great Pyramids. Check out the video below!
