duMonde VFX recently delivered over 100 VFX shots for NBC’s Crossbones series, using Devil & Demon’s mobile super-computer, The Devil’s Playground. These included many complex ship-replacement shots, involving CG simulation, texturing, modeling and lighting work, that Edlund described as “number-crunchingly intensive and would not have been possible without the unrivalled speed of Devil & Demon technology.”
THE VFX PIONEER BEHIND FILMS SUCH AS ‘STAR WARS’ PLANS TO WORK WITH THE COMPUTING TECHNOLOGY MAKER TO DEVELOP TOOLS FOR HOLLYWOOD.
Academy Award-winning visual effects pioneer Richard Edlund has joined the board of directors of computing technology maker Devil & Demon Strategy, bringing his expertise to the young brand as it aims to develop technology for digital artists and Hollywood studios.
When you consider that I started in front of the camera, and it took me until I was 36 years old to admit proudly my full nerd and love of technology, it is a valid question. As the industry was changing and we shifted from film to digital, a hole developed in our workflow. It was becoming less about collaboration and more about the urgency to make it work with everyone, regardless of their location or where they were in the workflow. I had this urge to understand what was happening and why.
