“The pipeline handles the flow of the data as it travels through the stages of the production“

I worked on a many productions where I either was part of the implementation process of the pipeline or I was responsible for the whole production and therefore had a leading role in the design and set-up of the pipeline and the production management.

  • What is a Pipeline: There are various types of pipelines (e.g. for production, data or approval). Often people tend to think of pipelines as an integrated pipeline to control and manage the data and the work-flow.

    A pipeline is really about analyzing and describing processes and work-flows. They are not the program or script itself - they are the idea behind the program - and eventually become transformed into code. These processes vary a lot between studios as well as individual productions. And there are differences for VFX, CGI, S3D, Cel Animation and Stop Motion productions.
  • Pipeline Generally: I design, plan and integrate pipelines and provide workflow and process definition as well as database creation and integration. This is either done on customers' in-house resources (programmer and code) or with the help of external tools and programmers.
  • Database: Excel/Google–Doc, SQL, FileMaker, ftrack and Shotgun (setup/customization)
  • Scripting: Python, PyQt/PySide, MEL, SQL
