"All of Frantic Films software tools have been developed out of necessity-to fill the need of complex production challenges we encountered on major VFX films like Superman Returns, as well as current productions for Walden Media," said Chris Bond, president & creative director, Frantic Films. "These tools have been put to the ultimate test-required to perform and deliver under tight timelines, not only here at Frantic-but also at several prominent effects, animation and gaming facilities around the world."
"The development team at Frantic Films is exemplary, they also provide incredibly fast and efficient support. We have been using Deadline to run a render farm of over 160 computers, and we are able to output thousands of images per month with no worries. I can rest assured that everything renders smoothly with Deadline," said Sylvain Berger, Technical Director of Alpha Vision, a 2-year customer of Frantic Films Deadline software.
