If you think our Academy Award winning software is only used in summer blockbuster movies, think again. Since first appearing on the big screen with James Cameron’s Avatar, SpeedTree is being used for digital forests not just for VFX in mega-blockbuster hits, but also in indie productions and television (Including Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No). As the demand for higher production spectacles on both cable and network television increase in this “golden age of television”, VFX is used to meet the quick turnaround and to make epic environments. SpeedTree offers an incredibly efficient workflow to help meet deadlines and quick visualizations. Next time you tune-in to a medieval fantasy epic, a superhero caper, or are an indie flick in your local theater, keep an eye out, you might catch some SpeedTrees in action.
Developed by Sundance Institute Creative Producing Lab, this sci-fi film is the first feature by Andrew Droz Palermo and stars Timothee Chalamet (Interstellar) and Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men) as gifted siblings. One & Two takes begins on a farm that is could be mistaken for being an Amish homestead if not for the high wall surrounding the entire property, and the ability of the young siblings to teleport themselves at will. While it may seem idyllic, conflict soon arises.
A retro spy thriller from the master of high-octane period pieces, Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, Snatch), The Man From U.N.C.L.E is a reboot of the classic spy tv series. Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill star as the odd couple spies forced to come together to stop a greater threat. Guy Ritchie is one of the most stylish directors in Hollywood that makes him a perfect match to bring classy 60’s action to the modern screen.
