About this talk

By 2025, VFX budgets will exceed $25 billion annually. VFX is on the rise across film and TV production, whether it’s an action blockbuster with photoreal CG characters and explosions or an indie film that needs beauty work, or a network TV hit, or a niche streaming series. Getting a VFX budget set up quickly and accurately can go a long way to reduce headaches and more effectively allocate resources throughout pre-production, production, and post. CURÓ simplifies the creation, organization, and management of a VFX budget from pre-production through final delivery, for both the production’s producer and the VFX Facility to hired to create the magic. CURÓ is a unified web-based system for the creation, planning, and management of visual effects budgets for any project. Joyce Cox, the creator of CURÓ, has spent the past 25 years producing visual effects for numerous VFX heavy projects including THE JUNGLE BOOK, AVATAR, THE DARK KNIGHT, TITANIC, HARRY POTTER, and MEN IN BLACK III. Joyce saw the need for unification across the visual effects industry to simplify and standardize methods for budgeting and managing the complex process. The result of her collaboration with UST Media Services and Thom Miller, the project’s developer, is CURÓ™, the smart alternative to unwieldy spreadsheets. Join Joyce Cox, Creator of CURÓ, Don Farr, VP Sales, UST Media Services, and Thom Miller, Project Developer, UST Media Services as they discuss: - How CURÓ streamlines the bidding process across the studios, production entities, and digital facilities from anywhere in the world - The features available such as easy setup, streamlined revisions and accurate forecasting - How CURÓ VENDOR provides the tools to establish billing rates, build cost complexity pricing and quickly return bids for clients
