Didn’t make it to FMX 2017 this year? Or missed our panel with MPC and Google Cloud? No worries — we filmed it! As a recap, this May Sohonet headed to FMX in Stuttgart,  Europe’s most influential conference for VFX, Animation, Games & Transmedia. We were joined by the experts behind the Oscar-winning film The Jungle Book and the Award-winning John Lewis Christmas Ad as well as Google Cloud. The panel focused on how VFX Studios such as MPC are utilizing cloud-based rendering tools to reach a level of visual complexity and detail in their work with increasingly tight deadlines. And also how they are benefiting from expanding their compute abilities beyond in-house walls to deal with the dramatic spikes in rendering workloads as deadlines approach. The Panel  Moderator: Gary Negus, VP Sales, EMEA at Sohonet Panelists: David Spilsbury, Director of Technology at MPC Advertising, Craig Dibble, Lead Render Systems Engineer at MPC Film, Oliver Pennington, Head of Engineering at Sohonet, Jeff Kember, Technical Director, Media, Office of the CTO at Google Cloud
