SAN MATEO, Calif. – January 31, 2023 – Mathematic Studio has deployed Hammerspace to enable global collaboration between its creative artists across multiple studios. Based in Paris, Mathematic is a creative VFX, animation, and motion design studio with more than 250 artists worldwide. The studio’s work spans commercial, music video, feature films and series, video game trailers, and entertainment creative content production.
Hammerspace’s Global Data Environment enables Mathematic’s artists to actively collaborate on content without the need to create copies and later merge updates into a single data set. Artists can leverage all of their workstation design tools for 3D compositing and modeling, visual effects, editorial finishing and archiving no matter where the artists or content is located. Previously the studio was having to manually copy assets from one location to another, resulting in disparate versioning and slow workflows. With Hammerspace, artists are able to collaborate and see changes in real-time across all locations. Hammerspace also provides Mathematic with a coordinated and consolidated archive solution.
With Hammerspace, Mathematic is able to make all data and applications available to its team of artists from any location with a global namespace. The studio’s team can access and use their preferred applications and tools seamlessly wherever they are based, allowing Mathematic to better leverage local talent in French, Canadian and U.S. markets and remain laser-focused on its mission of VFX production versus VFX execution.
Live Collaboration and Automated Data Orchestration Across Studios
“Hammerspace creates a global namespace and automates content orchestration, enabling our rapidly growing studio team to work more productively regardless of which office they are based,” said Clement Germain, Lead Flame Artist and VFX Supervisor at Mathematic. “Since our founding in 2006, our focus has consistently been on creating excellence in VFX art direction versus VFX execution. Hammerspace’s solution provides a competitive advantage to our team and the ability to continue delivering unparalleled work to our clients.”
Mathematic learned of Hammerspace through TrackIt, an AWS Advanced Tier Services Partner specializing in cloud management, consulting, and software development solutions with specialized expertise in media and entertainment workflows, high-performance computing environments, and data storage. Since Mathematic was looking to effectively manage file sharing across all of its facilities in multiple regions, TrackIt recommended Hammerspace as the ideal solution for the studio’s workflow.
Hammerspace provides decentralized organizations in media and entertainment – encompassing television and film creatives, content publishers, special effects artists, and corporate video producers – the ability to securely work efficiently and effectively in a decentralized world. Its Global Data Environment enables creative studios like Mathematic to orchestrate content to remote locations and provide low latency, local read/write access to global data.
