Tim Sarnoff, President of Technicolor Digital Productions, talks in depth about new paradigms in integrated global content production pipelines. The worlds of animation, visual effects and post-production have changed dramatically over the last few years, driven by growing demand, as well as a new decentralized model for production, and a whole new palette of tools that allow filmmakers to draw upon global creative resources – often in “real time.” Now we find a world where the creative filmmaker is at the center of the universe - with an ability to call upon talent from around the world, almost without restrictions.With more than 95 years of experience in entertainment innovation, Technicolor serves an international base of entertainment, software, and gaming customers. The company is a leading provider of production, postproduction, and distribution services to content creators and distributors. Technicolor is one of the world’s largest film processors; the largest independent manufacturer and distributor of DVDs (including Blu-ray Disc); and a leading global supplier of set-top boxes and gateways. The company also operates an Intellectual Property and Licensing business unit.
