Shotgun Software is hosting a user group at SIGGRAPH 2009 featuring guests from Digital Domain and Zoic Studios. Shotgun Software develops Shotgun, a project management and collaboration system for the animation, games, and visual effects markets. The pipeline presentation will be held on Tuesday, August 4, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. in room Blaine Kern C at the Convention Center Marriott, New Orleans.
The event is open to all SIGGRAPH attendees; RSVP to register at http://www.shotgunsoftware.com/rsvp.
Ryan Mayeda of Digital Domain and Mike Romey of Zoic Studios will be guest speakers. Shotgun Software founders will also demonstrate new features and present details about their development roadmap.
Shotgun is a flexible, scalable Web-based project management system designed specifically for the visual effects, CG feature animation, and video game industries, allowing all parties involved in a project instant access to critical data, messaging, and real-time project progress. Available in both a hosted (SaaS) and licensed model, large, mid-sized, boutique facilities and independent artists can benefit from Shotgun-managed pipelines, says a representative. Shotgun is currently in private beta; companies can learn more and sign up for the beta at www.shotgunsoftware.com.
“We are looking forward to hosting an informative and lively discussion about pipeline productivity and production tracking,” explains Don Parker, co-founder and CEO, Shotgun Software. “Both Digital Domain and Zoic Studios have deployed very effective pipeline solutions for television and film VFX production, but they have focused on different parts of their workflow and have used different approaches and techniques. We think their presentations will provide a great launch pad for an engaging conversation about production tracking and pipeline problem solving.”
