The Digital Production Pipeline

Session Chair:

The Digital Production Pipeline

It used to be about getting analogue data in and out of the digital world. Today it’s about connecting those various digital worlds into a fluid creative process.

While studios look to tighten budgets, minimize risk and broaden films’ reach worldwide across platforms, there is no standard operating procedure for studios to produce content. Shorter schedules, and globalization are as disruptive to the digital pipeline today as non-liner editing and digital cameras were to their analogue counterparts.

We'll walk through digital pipelines, expose a few of the methods and workflows that haven’t changed for far too long, and take a look at trends in production workflows that will allow studios to quickly adapt to these ever changing environments.
