ZELDA AND THE HUB ARE MADE FOR LOVE

The team played the VFX high notes in the captivating series, Solos. This anthology series that streams on Amazon Prime Video, takes place in different time periods. Amazon VFX Executives partnered with our team on 512 shots that include green orb, CG pool, twins and floating chalk.

“As each episode is essentially its own standalone short film, you’d think that each director would really vary wildly in style and approach, as there’s no set guidebook or guardrails as there is on an episodic. But that wasn’t the case with Solos. Our visual effects, sets and lighting were a backdrop for some of the world’s best actors to give incredibly moving performances to incredibly moving scripts.”

—Matthew Poliquin, Executive Producer, Ingenuity Studios

Ingenuity Studios Executive Producer Matthew Poliquin reflects on how Ingenuity helped navigate different time periods and execute key VFX shots including a green orb, CG pool, twins and floating chalk for Amazon Studios' anthology series Solos.

In collaboration with Spotify 's in-house creative team Ingenuity Studios were excited to develop the five creative concepts.

Managing larger scenes, however, as well as transitioning from world to world posed a technological challenge. With a huge assist from Houdini USD and Renderman, we were able to render the complexity of the Today’s Top Hits ship in one fell swoop.

We're proud of our client Ingenuity Studios for bucking this stubborn trend. Thanks to Karen Idelson at Variety for covering this important topic! Here's an excerpt: "At Ingenuity Studios, senior producer Rachel Hanson, executive producer Kieley Culbertson and senior producer Jumanah Shaheen have all found that working with a smaller, nimble VFX studio may make for faster career development. Each of them received the training and support they needed to advance their skills there. “I can see myself working for [Ingenuity] until I retire because there’s always movement,” says Hanson. “That’s not the case with other studios. And I hate saying that all the time but there needs to be more development of skills and advancement. It needs to be part of career development.” https://variety.com/2022/film/spotlight/women-vfx-1235156897/ #womeninvfx #vfx #ingenuitystudios #womeninvisualeffects #visualeffects #vfxindustrynews #vfxindustry #womeninbusiness #womeninleadership
