“Nex-Gen Technology Exploration Short Film with a Focus on VR, HDR, and Cloud-based Workflows,” is the whitepaper for ETC’s most recent film project, Wonder Buffalo.  Abstract:  Wonder Buffalo is a linear short film and room scale virtual reality experience commissioned to test the Cinema Content Creation Cloud (C4) framework, the ACES workflow for end-to-end high dynamic range (HDR), and the VR production workflow in tandem with a linear physical production.

This paper focuses on providing an analysis of Wonder Buffalo regarding best practices and opportunities for standardization regarding the Cloud-based workflow employed for the film’s production.  It will also detail the HDR on-set capture and final deliverables, as well as the process of incorporating a parallel VR pipeline into the linear production workflow.  Download the whitepaper here.
