Moonbot Shoots for the Cloud to Meet Deadlines and Manage Costs
Threatened by deadlines for Academy award submissions, Moonbot Studios faced a shortage of rendering capacity while working on Taking Flight, its newest animated short film, and other important projects. As a small studio with a matching budget, the team did what it does best—it got creative and solved the problem with what they first called “magic.”
In this webinar, the Moonbot team will tell its tale of sending its rendering capacity to Google Compute Engine and how they defied networking odds by caching data close to the animators with an Avere vFXT. Hear Moonbot’s pipeline supervisor tell how they turned cloud data center distance into a non-issue, met deadlines, and gained quantitative benefits that sparked energy in this small team of creative aviators.
In this session, you will learn:
•What drove the Moonbot Studios to move to the cloud
•How they moved complex renders to Google Compute Engine, overcoming data access roadblocks
•Measurable results including speed, economics, flexibility, and creative freedom
The Moonbot Studios flight to the cloud will be supported by Google Cloud Platform and Avere Systems for a complete overview of how the technologies help bring new ideas to life.
