The ‘logic’ and IT magic behind animated movie making

Jennifer O'Brien | Jan. 30, 2017
An increased focus on data management is transforming the way Animal Logic makes movies.

“Running out there without a really clear understanding of what your strategy is and why you might be moving data or a particular process to the cloud, for example, is pretty futile. You really have to understand what the core value proposition is,” he said.

“It’s about monitoring automation - looking to see what opportunities may exist in the cloud.”

Security is another area of focus and the organisation is eyeing next-generation security and identity access management, multi-factor authentication, best-of-breed firewalls, and network segregation initiatives.

And while his head is squarely in the IT space, his main mission is to push the envelope, be one step ahead of the industry changes and help the team provide groundbreaking visual effects and animation.

“Every movie seems to be trying to push the boundaries. People want to see something new, something more spectacular - and creatively that’s definitely what directors and studios and ultimately the end consumers want to see.

"They want to be wowed by a good story and amazing visuals and with that comes the constant desire and challenges to reach over the bar. Once you set the bar to a certain height, you want to exceed that and push the bar higher.”
