The ease of transition was due to Temprimental’s core business model: ever since the company’s inception in 2015, Temprimental’s artists, supervisors, producers, pipelined devs, and more all work from their homes or remote offices, sharing work and collaborating via technology like cineSync. So, as the rigors of 2020 set in and facilities fought to transition significant workflows from on-premise to remote, Temprimental needed to change very little. Indeed, they hit the ground running.
For Executive Producer and company founder Raoul Bolognini, remote was the obvious choice for Temprimental from the start, even in 2015 when the concept was largely alien to the VFX business.
“We weren’t ever going to be a brick and mortar facility with hundreds of seats,” begins Bolognini. “We always liked the nimbleness of the remote model, which offered access to a global selection of artists and boutique houses with whom we could partner. Remote also enabled us to offer our clients the flexibility they desired from VFX; we could come in at a certain budget level aligned with the type of films and TV work we wanted to take on. Remote work gave us the flexibility to stretch the dollars, approach exciting projects, and even explore different markets. And it certainly set us in good stead ahead of the global changes in 2020 that forced the industry to evolve.”
