Rising VFX Studio Begins Rolling Out Studio Management Platform Across Company; Local Hosting to Help with High-Security Projects
Today, NIM Labs announced that Aaron Sims Creative (ASC), the powerhouse studio behind the Stranger Things Demogorgon and Ready Player One’s virtual characters, has begun feeding financial data into its studio management platform, NIM. ASC can now track the health of their studio using highly visual tools for bidding, timecards and projections, helping them stay on track and on budget as they continue to turn out some of the world’s most compelling creature designs.
Like most studios, ASC has to keep a careful eye on resource management. With change orders and quality bumps growing more common, finding a way to see if the internal numbers are pointing towards a steady path or a necessary change has become even more important.
ASC’s search for a better management platform led them to NIM. ASC was immediately intrigued by its ability to run locally, as this would make it applicable to projects that required zero internet access and extreme security. Once they started playing around with it, though, it revealed itself to be a true friend to the creative.
