  • Jesse Kobayashi to Detail Cloud-Based Collaboration on “The Lord of the Rings”

    Posted by Ralph Hajik on March 26, 2023 at 7:36 pm

    Jesse Kobayashi, VFX producer on “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power,” will take the NAB Show Main Stage on April 16 to discuss how Blackmagic Design, Company 3 and AWS collaborated to create an entirely cloud-based infrastructure for conform, color-grading and delivery on one of the largest television shows in history.

    A bonus Post|Production World (P|PW) session open to all 2023 NAB Show attendees, “A Case Study: Color and Finishing in the Cloud” will detail this collaboration and explore how learnings and values from the production are leading to new use cases and opportunities for productions across the industry.

    Kobayashi is a visual effects producer with more than two decades of experience in the industry. In addition to “The Rings of Power” for Amazon Studios, his credits in visual effects include “Kong: Skull Island” and “Warcraft” for Legendary Pictures and “Krampus” for Universal Pictures. Kobayashi has also served as director of visual effects at Legendary Pictures and as a post producer at both Warner Bros. and Laser Pacific.

    A graduate of Azusa Pacific University, Kobayashi was instrumental in founding the university’s first film courses. He has since become a sought-after consultant for modern filmmaking and is a strong advocate for using new technologies to improve the overall quality and efficiency of the filmmaking process.

    P|PW, produced by Future Media Conferences, takes place April 15-19 and is the world’s leading training conference for production & post-production professionals, content creators, designers, TV, film & video editors, producers, directors, motion graphics & online video specialists.
