Photoreal, Surreal, or Fantastic, we make it beautiful.
Formerly known as Code-Monkeys, we've been building bespoke technology and artistic solutions for our clients and colleagues since 2000.
We've built hundreds of websites, mobile apps, and custom software solutions for discerning clients such as Intel, MGM, Four Seasons, and more.
Soma SetWorks is also a sister company to Soma Games, a veteran and prolific game development company operating since 2008.
We're ecstatic to bring the worlds of video game development and media services together in the new and exciting world of virtual production.
When The Mandalorian made virtual production a phenomenon, thousands of studios began building LED walls and volumes to meet the exploding demand.
But there's a bottleneck
For all of the projects that would benefit from in-camera VFX and all the XR stages available to shoot in there's a bottleneck resource:
Unreal Environment Artists!
Who is going to build all of these sets?
The need for everything from photorealistic jungles, to high-rise board rooms, and dragon infested canyons far exceeds the supply of trained creators.
Our unique blend of skills bring video game technology to film and video production realities.
For the Director and DP who needs everything to be just right and right now. The long-sought ability to "cue the sun" is here and we're at your side to make everything just right in real time.
We build bespoke environments from the ground up when everything has to be just so as well as kitbashing off-the-shelf sets when budget is the controlling concern.
Building a beautiful set is only half the battle. Having a trained expert on set and at the shoot is what moves a shot from "that'll work" to "that's amazing."
"Some of the best environments I've ever seen."
"It was a pleasure to work with Soma and so different from other experiences we've had in the past."
"I'm so glad we found you! There's an enormous need for this kind of product and this level of service."
"The sets are great, but it's the communication and professionalism that really sets Soma apart. Well done!"
