Shotgun Software Helps Illumination Mac Guff Manage ‘Despicable Me 2′ Production

Los Angeles, CAShotgun Software’s web-based production management platform, Shotgun, kept Paris-based animation studio Illumination Mac Guff on track for the 3D summer family film and last weekend’s box office topper, Despicable Me 2. Flexible and scalable, Shotgun was first installed at the studio in 2007, and has become more deeply integrated into Illumination Mac Guff’s pipeline with each new project.

“The development cycle for any animated film can run up to four years, and managing our productions on Shotgun helps reduce this time by more than half,” explained Etienne Pecheux, Supervising Technical Director, Illumination Mac Guff. “Shotgun also helps create a real synergy between artists, team leaders and producers. It centralizes all data, which eliminates discrepancies between production reports, and makes it easy to arrange reports any way we need, with different levels of detail depending on scope.”

For Despicable Me 2, Illumination Mac Guff worked with more than 400 artists, 50 team leaders, 25 managers and 30 technical crewmembers. Shotgun provided users instant access to critical project data in real time from any location. During production, each movie or frame sequence published on the internal asset manager was automatically transferred to Shotgun where the content could be viewed via Tweak Software’s RV playback and review system. Illumination Mac Guff also fed Shotgun statistics on render times, which helped detect abnormally long renders and anticipate a re-allocation of render power based on weekly quotas. Having leveraged Shotgun for Despicable Me (2010) and The Lorax (2012), Illumination Mac Guff has also developed about 20 custom Apps around Shotgun to date, from simple Linux line commands to a complex timesheet system.

“Shotgun is a very open production tracking system. Without it, we wouldn’t have been able to track all we needed for three features films,” Pecheux said. “Moreover, we would have lost a tremendous amount of time gathering information for debriefing reports. Today, we have accurate statistics on almost any part of the pipeline, and can anticipate costs and durations very precisely. The simplicity of the API and the core engine behind the UI also make coding dedicated tools very easy.”

For each new feature film project, Illumination Mac Guff sets up a separate Shotgun database to control administrative settings and manage access and control of users at various levels of the production. Prior to deploying Shotgun, Illumination Mac Guff’s projects were managed with a smattering of homemade databases and Excel sheets.

“When Shotgun demoed at our studio, it was obvious that these guys came from production and faced the same problems we did, and that they found the proper answer to each question,” noted Pecheux. “Shotgun stores data in a very simple set of tables and makes it easy to access data through a viewer that you can configure almost any way you like. For our studio, Shotgun made it possible to get global reports as well as detailed views. It definitely changed the way producers and artists work here.”

Shotgun CEO Don Parker said, “Collaborating with the team at Illumination Mac Guff has been incredible and inspiring. We’ve worked very closely with them for years in the evolution of their studio and pipeline, and watching their growth and astounding success has been a thrill. Shotgun is designed to alleviate production tedium and maximize efficiencies so when customers really harness its potential, that’s a big win in our book.”

Featuring the voices of Steve Carell, Kirstin Wiig and Russell Brand, Despicable Me 2 was released in theaters July 3, 2013 by Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment.

About Shotgun Software
Shotgun Software was founded in January 2006 by a group of visual effects professionals to build production tracking and pipeline solutions. The founding members worked together on a major studio animated feature, and are developing Shotgun to fill the mounting industry need for a commercially viable system for managing complex projects spread across multiple locations. Shotgun is actively developing the system with more than 300 industry studios including Digital Domain, Double Negative, Framestore, Rainmaker, Playstation, Blizzard, Zoic Studios, Dr. D, and Laika.

Christie MicroTiles Illuminate Reception at Opening of Interactive Media Building at the USC School of Cinematic Arts

Christie®, a global leader in advanced cinema technologies and visual display solutions, recently showcased its Christie® MicroTiles® at the opening of the new Interactive Media Building at the University of Southern California (USC) School of Cinematic Arts (SCA). Christie is partnering with USC to provide students and faculty with access to the latest in visual technologies.

Christie MicroTiles at Univ. of Southern California


A gala reception was followed by an open house where attendees, comprised mostly of game and tech-industry executives, as well as faculty of SCA and friends of USC, could observe and interact with different programs and content being developed for new entertainment and educational projects. Content for the 30 Christie MicroTiles was provided by USC School of Cinematic Arts.
.
The reception was also followed by a panel discussion on “The Future of Entertainment,” featuring George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and Don Mattrick of Microsoft, and was moderated by Julia Boorstin of CNBC. The panelists discussed current technology shifts/trends with emerging medias and outlined where they believe the entertainment industry is headed in the future.

The SCA Interactive Media Building will house programs that include the Interactive Media & Games Division, the Media Arts + Practice Bachelor’s and Doctoral Programs, and the Institute for Multimedia. It will also house leading edge R & D labs, such as Game Innovation, Mixed Reality, and Environmental Media Lab. The building features all of the most advanced digital technology including 4K digital projection, game testing rooms, and multitouch screens.
.
“At the USC School of Cinematic Arts we always want our students to have access to technologies that will improve their ability to tell exciting stories and the Christie MicroTiles solution literally allows them to expand their vision,” said the School’s Dean Elizabeth M. Daley. “This is the kind of technology that seamlessly supports the best narrative storytelling, and the visual displays are just stunning.”

“We’re delighted to support the School with our proven Christie MicroTiles solution, built on DLP® technology, and used around the globe in many visual display applications,” said Jack Kline, President and CEO of Christie Digital Systems USA. “Christie MicroTiles are ideal for a wide range of demanding applications, including architectural elements, out-of-home advertising, command and control video walls, and event production, so we look forward to the content that the students will create to exploit the many features of our award-winning technology.”
.
Using the strengths of both DLP® projection and Light Emitting Diode (LED) illumination technology, Christie MicroTiles offer substantially brighter images and a much wider color palette than conventional flat panel LCD and plasma displays. With no practical limit to the number of tiles in a display, Christie MicroTiles produce a virtually seamless canvas, arranged in any shape or scale, with an unlimited number of super-fine pixels.

Coast Hills Community Church Achieves Clear, Crisp Recordings with DPA Microphones

Church Relies on d:fine Headsets and 4098H Hanging Mics for
Live Streaming and Recording of Sermons and Worship Performances

ALISO VIEJO, CA, JULY 10, 2013 – As production technology grows more sophisticated, the audio crew members at Coast Hills Community Church are finding themselves increasingly responsible for streaming productions live to the Internet or recording them to DVD. In order to deliver high-quality audio in these scenarios, the church relies on DPA Microphones’ d:fineHeadset Microphones and several DPA 4098H Hanging Supercardioid Microphones.

Designed to function much like a traditional performing arts center, Coast Hills Community Church is housed in a nearly square building with seating for 1,300 worshippers. The sanctuary has undergone minimal acoustical treatments and exhibits a lot of natural reflection, making intelligibility of the spoken word an issue. With the front-of-house production setup situated on a balcony above and behind the parishioners, mixing and equalizing can also be a challenge. To cope with these factors, Mike Sessler, the church’s technical arts director, employs the d:fine headset microphones. The d:fine mics ensure that Coast Hills Senior Pastor Ken Baugh always sounds natural, without producing any feedback.

The microphone requires little-to-no EQ, allowing Sessler to concentrate on other aspects of recording the sermons, such as mixing. While the audio can be improved in post production, if the EQ input is perfect right from the beginning, the resulting audio will sound much better.

“Baugh has a very distinct voice that is difficult to mic and still sound good,” explains Sessler. “Previously, we had to balance a lot of EQ to make him sound acceptable. With the DPA d:fines, we use very little EQ to produce his natural voice. He sounds like him, not like a processed, analyzed version of himself.”

The placement of the microphone also has an important effect on audio, making it critical to find the right position. Even slight changes to the angle or location of a microphone can result in sound that is less than harmonious. The DPA d:fine headset features a miniature capsule that allows Sessler to position the microphone on Baugh in a spot that produces the biggest sound without losing clarity. The miniature capsule also keeps the microphone discreet, making Baugh’s voice sound loud and clear without making it look like he is wearing the mic.

“That is what I love about DPA mics,” says Sessler. “You can just put them up, or on, in the case of the d:fine, and you don’t have to do a lot of work on them. They just make the sound you’re trying to amplify louder. The d:fine is comfortable and sounds great without my having to do a lot of work. I am confident that I can hand Baugh the mic and that it will go in the same place every time.”

Duke DeJeong, church relations director for DPA dealer CCI Solutions, which often works with Coast Hills, says that the most critical microphone for any service is the one the pastor wears. “As 60 percent of the service is focused on his spoken word, it is definitely not the mic to skimp on,” he notes. “The DPA d:fine ends up in the right place every time, so there are never any gain before feedback issues, and the sound is natural, loud and clear. In the end, it is one of the best microphones out there to use for services, especially those that are being recorded.”

While the pastor should be outfitted with the highest-quality microphone during a service, Sessler knows that other audio elements must be attended to as well. For the recordings, he relies on several DPA 4098H Hanging Supercardioid Microphones to capture the live sound of the congregation for a variety of church functions, including baptisms and large-scale musical performances. These mics are positioned over the house to provide live ambient sound back to the musicians’ in-ear monitors, and also near the choir and musicians for both live performances and recordings. As with the d:fine, the 4098H provides the clear, natural sound important to capturing a musical performance.

“DPA Microphones has earned a reputation for exceptional clarity, high resolution and, above all, pure, uncolored and accurate sound,” concludes Sessler. “Whether recording or producing sound reinforcement for theatrical or broadcast productions, DPA’s microphones have become the choice of professionals who demand sonic excellence.”

The church also relies on the DPA’s d:vote 4099 Instrument Microphones to pick up audio from its worship band.

Coast Hills Community Church grew out of a bible study led by Founding Pastor Denny Bellesi and his wife Leesa in their living room in 1985. As the church’s popularity grew, Dana Hills High School became the congregation’s first official meeting place. When the church grew to more than 400 families, it sought more space. In 1993, the congregation moved into a brand-new building in Aliso Viejo, California, where the congregation still worships today. Well-known for its weekend services featuring solid bible teaching and passionate singing, Coast Hills Community Church has drawn more than 3,000 families to its congregation.

ABOUT DPA:
DPA Microphones A/S is the leading Danish Professional Audio manufacturer of high quality condenser microphones and microphone solutions for professional applications in studio, broadcast, theatre, video/film and sound reinforcement environments. All DPA microphones and components are manufactured at the company’s purpose-built factory in Denmark.
