This paper proposes a new concept for a movie production system that utilizes a virtual environment and a computer network. The basis of the concept is that via a computer network anybody can be: (1) a performer, (2) a producer, and (3) the audience. A prototype composed of a server and client computers has been developed and is used to produce a movie based on both motion capture systems and CG animation. Experimental results confirm the feasibility of the system.
