LONDON — Big Pic Media (www.bigpicmedia.net) , which handles design and installation services, helped build one of London’s latest creative studios - Elmntl (www.elmntl.studio). The Shoreditch facility is built around a host of cloud-based creative tools that allow artists to collaborate in the studio or remotely. This cloud-enabled approach provides the ability to scale processor-intensive tools in the cloud without being limited by physical footprint or on-premise hardware.
Elmntl features an open-plan with collaborative project areas and suites for color grading, VFX and CG/motion graphics. There are also multiple support stations for production planning, ingest, QC and delivery. Big Pic Media supplied and installed all local hardware required for monitoring, control and networking. This included Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve Advanced Panels; Sony BVM HX-310 and PVM-X3200 monitors across color grading, online and QC monitoring space; and Sony A95k QD-OLED displays in client areas, which are calibrated to match the reference HX-310.
Big Pic Media worked alongside Konsistent Consulting, an AWS-approved independent consultant company, to specify, install and commission the on-prem hardware, networking and cloud-based infrastructure required to support the studio’s technical infrastructure. This ensures that the studio can use all required resources on-demand, simply and efficiently.
“Elmntl has built a facility that is extremely friendly and welcoming,” says Adam Welsh, Big Pic Media director. “It has the infrastructure to allow creatives and clients to work in a flexible environment and make sure the work produced is of the highest standard, on-time and on-budget.”
“Adam and the Big Pic Media guys were great to work with, flexible and accommodating to our changing needs and expectations during the build,” adds Danny Whybrow, Elmntl founding partner. “Our operations were up and running on schedule. We are now flat out on new projects with everything working perfectly. We look forward to bringing Adam and his team back to expand our studio facilities in the near future.”
