Fox Renderfarm：可以和我們介紹下這部作品的 pipeline嗎？團隊如何分工合作的？如何把控預算的呢？
Fox Renderfarm：SIGGRAPH 2019剛剛結束，大會中推出了很多“黑科技”，開源軟件發展態勢也不錯！對於這些新技術是怎麽看待的？覺得未來的視效行業應該是怎麽樣的發展趨勢？ 李昭樺：特效行業在本質上來說是個需要大量人力與時間的產業，隨著科技的與硬體的進步，可以有效的的減少人力與時間上的成本需求，AI最近壹直都是業界研發的壹個重點，如何用深度學習來取代人力來處理壹些枯燥的工作，讓Artist本身可以更加的FOCUS在創作上面；但隨著軟件的進步，Artist本身解決問題的能力也逐漸下滑，在未來也許有壹天AI可以顛覆整個創作的流程，但以現階段，我們內部還是著重於Artist本身解決問題能力的培養，讓Artist有靈活的思路與作業模式，盡可能的不去太過依賴軟體。Blender今年的更新的確令人驚艷，但開源軟件有壹個最大的壞處，往往在遇到軟體的重大問題時開發團隊無法提供有效且即時的支援，在Production這種快節奏的環境之下，並不是壹個最佳的選擇，並且在這樣的狀況之下，公司往往需要培養壹批Blender的TD來開發專屬工具，來應對專案的多樣化的內容，無疑會在人事上提高成本。但相對來說，希望藉由開源軟體的壯大，可以給壹些軟體開發公司適當的警訊，更加用心地去經營線上的主流制作軟體，開發出更穩定更進步的更新版本。
Fox Renderfarm：對瑞雲(Fox Renderfarm) cloud rendering service的服務體驗及評價？ 李昭樺：我覺得Fox Renderfarm給予兔將最大的幫助是在服務的部分，每當有問題時，不管任何時間，總是會有親切的窗口來幫助我們排解問題，讓我們的渲染可以順利的完成。

Interview With Blow Studio, One Of The Animation Producers Of Netflix’s Love, Death & Robots
Fox Renderfarm News
Love, Death & Robots, is an American adult animated anthology web television series on Netflix, consists of 18 stand-alone episodes, all under 20 minutes long and all produced by different casts and crews. Now, Fox Renderfarm is so happy to have an interview with Blow Studio, the animation producer of “Three Robots” in Netflix’s Love, Death & Robots, and honorable to provide cloud rendering services for “Three Robots”. Here is the interview regarding “Three Robots” between Blow Studio and Fox Renderfarm.
Fox Renderfarm: We noticed that you provide production services for commercials, TV shows, short films, and many other formats related to animation, so can you please give us a brief overview of Blow Studio?
Blow Studio: Blow Studio is an animation and VFX production company formed in 2011. We provide production services for commercials, series, short films, and many other formats related to animation. In addition, we are always looking for personal projects to push our limits.
We have worked on projects for brands such as: Netflix, Chanel, River Island, Johny Walker, MTV, Izze, Axe, Rdio, Sanex, Vimeo and others.
Fox Renderfarm: Which part is the most important in production of this project？
Blow Studio: All production stages are important. Every step must have an even quality so the final product is balanced. Considering the type of story, if we had to choose a fundamental area of this episode that required a greater effort from us, I think we would choose animation.
Fox Renderfarm: Can you share with us the challenges in the production of this short film?
Blow Studio: The animation was a challenge because we had to animate about 120 shots mixing styles. We had to invest a lot of effort in this area in order to take forward the project
Another challenge I would like to highlight is the making of a realistic talking cat. Modeling, shading, rig, animation, hair...everything required the highest quality to make this character credible. The cat was the most complicated character of this episode and we are very proud of the result.
Fox Renderfarm: How do you like this short film? Which part do you think is the most interesting?
Blow Studio: Three Robots is the most important project we have made at Blow Studio. We love the story, the tone and the visual design. If we had to choose one sequence, maybe it would be the abandoned house. It's a very funny part, with a delicious animation and hilarious lines. Also, here is when we meet the cat, a character that will be the key at the end of the story.
Fox Renderfarm: What do you think of Netflix's animated series Love, Death & Robots?
Blow Studio: We are fans of "Love, Death & Robots" and we are completely into adult animation. Before the series, back in 2017 we release a short film called "Alleycats", and it goes in the same tone of "Love, Death & Robots". This is a short film where we did what we wanted to: ninja cats slicing their heads through the alleys of the city with a dark vengeance background reflected in the story. So yes, this is the kind of things we love to do.
We needed someone to stand for this kind of animation, and Netflix did the bet. We just hope they continue investing in this type of content because it looks that it's something people was asking for.
Fox Renderfarm: Which episode do you like the most in season 1 of Love, Death & Robots? Why?
Blow Studio: All episodes have a very high level of quality and something to highlight, so it's very difficult to choose just one. But if we had to, we will surely choose "Three Robots" because making it was very satisfying and it is like our little baby.
Fox Renderfarm: Speaking of rendering, please tell us more about your overall experience with Fox Renderfarm?
Blow Studio: It was a pleasant surprise to work with Fox Renderfarm. We had to outsource some parts of the render in order to deliver on time and Fox Renderfarm allowed us to meet our deadline. Sure we will work again with them if we need to.
Fox Renderfarm: In closing, is there any interesting behind scene story you would like to share with us?
Blow Studio: Thanks to 'Three Robots' now we are cat experts. We had to do a very laborious study of them to reach this quality, and we really don't know how much hours we had to spend watching references for animation, the hair, the anatomy, the behavior of the skin, etc.
And we just wanted to say that it has been an adventure and an honor to be part of the production team of this amazing project along with the best CG studios today.
Fox Renderfarm: Thank Blow Studio for taking time in this interview, looking forward to seeing more and more wonderful works produced by Blow Studio.

The Shipment Win Best VFX
Fox Renderfarm News
Berlin Science-fiction film Festival is the first international festival of Science-fiction Film in Germany. It has shown about 200 independent films from over 30 countries in the past 2 years.
The 2018 Berlin Science-fiction Film festival vote has come to end of a phase, but much professional staff has anticipated the winner of the Berlin Science-fiction film. For the VFX and animation industry, the most concerned prize is the Best Visual Effects. Today let us share the film which has won the Best Visual Effects---The Shipment.
The Shipment has also been selected to Tribeca film festival which is ranked one of the top 10 film festivals in the world as well recently in New York. It is really proud to say that the render of this film is supported by Fox Renderfarm. Let us watch this film together.
- Name: The Shipment
- Country: Canada
- Language: English
- Release Date: 21 October 2018 (Australia)
- Also Known As: Cargo
- Filming Locations: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
The film tells the story about a widowed cargo hauler Aedin Katar and his young daughter Zohra.
Aedin Katar is an ex-slave trader struggles to live a reformed life as a lowly interplanetary cargo hauler. While transporting a shipment of alien livestock to a distant planet, their ship encounters a mechanical failure and must land at an old spaceport. Unable to afford the repairs to their ship, Stranded and broke, he faces his dark past and difficult ethical choices in a desperate attempt to provide a better life for his daughter.
Being a sci-fi film, The Shipment needs a tremendous amount of VFX and rendering. The film is entirely self financed by the director Bobby Bala, Who is also the CEO at Flying Car Productions, and it is over budget. Fox Renderfarm has provided rendering power with a significantly discounted rate for this film which is over 40,000 frames. Bobby mentioned in the interview that "Fox Renderfarm was critical to the success and completion of our film The Shipment. Their customer service was excellent and their cloud rendering system was very reliable and user friendly. After many unsuccessful experiences with other cloud rendering services, we were grateful to find Fox which surpassed our expectations. Without their affordable rendering options, we would not have been able to complete our independent sci-fi film which has recently been chosen as an official selection at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival in New York."
Here we also have an interview with Katapix Media which teamed up with Post-VFX to tackle the bulk of the Post production, Tasked with more than 390 shots for this film. Carlos Duque who is the Co-founder of Katapix Media tells us it was a Learning experience working on this project. They had short notice to put together a team and train some of the crew so they could be on par with the quality requirement, Bobby definitely has an eye for detail so they needed to beat his expectations.
Carlos also introduces some challenges of the production:
Our company (Katapix) is based in Medellin (Colombia), we’ve been in the industry for more than 15 years doing CG and VFX for tv and advertising, and started Katapix 5 years ago with a goal in mind, Feature films, The Shipment brings us closer to that goal, so this project was a welcome challenge. As every project it had its ups and downs but nevertheless was super fun and now that we see the results and all the selections and awards it’s getting, you realize it was all worth it!!
One of our biggest concerns was rendering times, since we are a small company and we knew this was going to be super render intensive, so we looked for a reliable cloud rendering service , tried a bunch, and ended up picking Fox Renderfarm over the render farm , because their price/benefit are more important, their staff was there for us 24/7 not via email or forums, we actually had direct contact with our account manager and a group of TD’s willing to help us regardless of the hour. It was an overall great experience to work with them and we still use Fox Renderfarm as our sole render solution.
The Shipment has brought home the award for Best Visual FX from Berlin Sci-Fi Film Festival and thrilled to be a Tribeca 2019 Official Selection! At the same time, it is also Honoured to be an official selection of Idyllwild International Festival Of Cinema, Irvine International Film Festival, Fantasporto - Porto International Film Festival, Bermuda International Film Festival, The European Independent Film Festival & Irvine International Film Festival, Miami Sci-Fi Film Festival, and so on. Looking forward to its release in China.
“Upin & Ipin: Keris Siamang Tunggal” Rendered With Fox Renderfarm
Fox Renderfarm News
“Upin & Ipin: Keris Siamang Tunggal”, produced by Les’ Copaque Production Sdn. Bhd. has been on screen in Malaysia on 21st March 2019. This film was rendered by Fox Renderfarm.
This is a 100-minute feature film of adventure, family and fantasy genre, with a very interesting story. The details of the movie are as follows.
“Upin & Ipin: Keris Siamang Tunggal” is Les’ Copaque Production Sdn. Bhd.’s third feature film.
Les’ Copaque Production Sdn. Bhd. was established in December 2005 to spearhead Malaysia’s animation industry and specialize in producing high-quality 3D animation and IP production.
Les’ Copaque Production has spent five years producing their second full-length 3D animated movie “Upin & Ipin: Keris Siamang Tunggal”.
Before this feature film, “Upin & Ipin” is the longest-running Malaysian animated series and the most popular IP in South Asia with over 12 million audience on Facebook. The series is currently on its 13th season in production.
This new adventure film tells of the adorable twin brothers Upin and Ipin together with their friends Ehsan, Fizi, Mail, Jarjit, Mei Mei, and Susanti, and their quest to save a fantastical kingdom of Inderaloka from the evil Raja Bersiong. It all begins when Upin, Ipin, and their friends stumble upon a mystical kris that leads them straight into the kingdom. While trying to find their way back home, they are suddenly burdened with the task of restoring the kingdom back to its former glory. With help from Mat Jenin and Belalang, Upin, Ipin and their friends must overcome a series of challenging obstacles in this action-packed, magical and humorous adventure film produced by Les’ Copaque Production Sdn. Bhd.
“Upin & Ipin: Keris Siamang Tunggal” is the most expensive movie in Malaysia, costing an estimate of 20 million ringgit (around US$4.92 million). The movie is 100 minutes in duration and took a production team of 140, including 12 lighting and rendering artists, and 5 years to complete.
Over 50 different species of animals were created. It is also the first time Les’ Copaque Production has had hair groomed for over 70 rigged characters. There were a lot of technical challenges that the production team has to overcome. For example, one dancing shot has a crowd of 120 characters at once, with some heavy shots that have more than 180 rendered layers, etc.
During 5-year long production, the team has had three major upgrades in regards to their hardware and software in order to deliver the complexity of the film. The longest shot in this film has 722 frames and it took 100 rendering nodes and 2 months.
As a leading cloud rendering service provider, Fox Renderfarm’s reliable and high-efficient service helps Les’ Copaque Production in its support of the 3D feature film “Upin & Ipin: Keris Siamang Tunggal”.
The technical team of Les’ Copaque Production greatly praises the high-quality rendering service. They said: “We are very satisfied with Fox Renderfarm’s 24/7 real-time technical support, reliable download and upload speed, the user friendly webpage interface, and very simple desktop client app for our alternative option. For example, we have some frames that took 3 days to render locally, and after we submitted to Fox Renderfarm’s cloud rendering platform, it was completed in 2 hours, which greatly saved our time and budget. More importantly, the reliable and quality rendering also guarantees the quality of this film.”
“We use this mentality to the way we do our work, in giving our best in creating our own Intellectual Property (IP) with the highest quality possible.” This is the Mission of Les’ Copaque Production Sdn. Bhd.
Personally, I really like this mission statement. We look forward to the release of “Upin & Ipin: Keris Siamang Tunggal” in China and more countries in the world. It is our hope that the “Upin & Ipin” series will bring joy to more and more people, they will understand and enjoy the culture of Malaysia, and we expect nothing less than excellent work coming from Les' Copaque Production Sdn. Bhd. in the future.
