Shotgun Software announced that production, design and animation studio Psyop has adopted site licenses of Shotgun and Revolver with Tweak Software‘s RV as part of its plans for expansion. The multidisciplinary studio will leverage Shotgun and Revolver to streamline production management, tracking and review and approval for its upcoming commercial, game and music video projects.
“To continue developing projects across facilities, we need a strong, cohesive pipeline in place, which is why we’ve turned to Shotgun,” said Tony Barbieri, head of pipeline, Psyop. “With Shotgun, Revolver and RV at the core of our pipeline, we’ll have a multi-location advantage. Artists across any of our studios will be able access and review the same information – an invaluable asset.”
As Psyop grew, so did its production management, tracking and project review needs, driving an effort to research various commercially available applications. “Priority for us was to find a solution that could adapt flexibly with our growth,” Barbieri said. “We found that Shotgun’s bundled toolset works right out of the box. Shotgun seemed like a great choice because it allows developers to easily build on top and it appears to be quickly becoming an industry standard. We also knew Revolver with RV would allow us to review projects more efficiently across locations.”
Shotgun is a web-based production tracking and collaboration system that gives all parties instant access to critical data, messaging and real-time project progress. Revolver provides digital studios with an all-in-one review toolset, including both a web player and deep integration with RV for native playback. Combining production tracking and review, Revolver makes it easy for teams in any location to view work in context of the cut, browse and compare iterations, annotate on images, write notes and collaborate in real-time. Both Shotgun and Revolver have an open API that enables studios to quickly build custom tools and bridges to other applications using Python scripting.
“Psyop has an amazing creative team that continues to deliver remarkable work,” CEO of Shotgun, Don Parker, said. “We’re huge fans of the studio and are delighted they have chosen Shotgun and Revolver for their pipeline. We look forward to building our next gen toolset with input from the Psyop team.”
