Yesterday, Vū Technologies, “creator of the highly disruptive virtual production Vū Studio for film and video” announced it had closed on a $10 million seed round from a Minneapolis-based firm. This is the largest investment a Tampa Bay start-up has ever received.
Vū Technologies opened their first virtual production campus in Tampa Bay back in 2020 and has since done projects with the Today Show, 21 Pilots, Jeep, Mercedes and many more well-known brands.
With this seed money in hand, the company will begin to expand outside of Tampa. Vū Technologies will establish campuses in Las Vegas, Nevada, Nashville, Tennessee and other locations in the northeastern United States during Q1 of 2022.
Tim Moore, Vū Technologies co-founder and CEO shared that “we plan to add New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Orlando, Stanford and Toledo campuses before the end of 2022. With each additional campus, our clients gain additional benefits via the network effect of economic and logistical savings as well as remote operation capabilities.”
