SXSW 2015

We will not be attending SXSW this year, but we will be there in spirit. We recently completed work doing VFX and Color Grading for the South by Southwest film festival bumpers, with the creative team behind the beautiful Pixar short film "The Blue Umbrella", and SXSW just published a quick interview about it.

We will have much more press and news about this soon, and eventually we will post a more detailed behind-the-scenes of how we brought everything to life in these bumpers, but for now, we couldn't feel luckier to have collaborated with Saschka Unseld and Kyle Ranson-Walsh in this adventure.

If you go to SXSW, let us know what you thought! Read more here:

The most innovative Portuguese working abroad

The weekly Portuguese news magazine Sábado just published a new edition with a cover article about the most innovative Portuguese who are currently working abroad. They chose five people to talk about their careers and how they are finding success, and failure, while taking risks and moving forward in their respective fields.

Sutro Studios got a mention through Afonso Salcedo, one of the five people mentioned in the article. Congratulations to everyone involved, and all the other people chosen for the article.

You can read the whole thing below by clicking on the thumbnails (Portuguese language only).

 

Trojan Horse

We are proud to announce we will be present in the amazing VFX/Animation/Games festival Trojan horse Was A Unicorn, this September in Portugal. 

Afonso Salcedo will be giving a couple of talks and will be hanging out for the four days of the conference, answering any questions about career, animation, vfx, and whatever else you might want to know. 

Stay tuned for further details. 

Learn more about the conference in it's official website or Facebook page.

Visao

Visao, the weekly news magazine in Portugal (similar to NewsWeek in the US), just celebrated its 20th anniversary with a special edition released today March 21st, with several articles on successful Portuguese people around the world. There's an insane amount of talent coming from Portugal as you can see through the pages of the magazine. We were fortunate enough to get a blurb in it, about some of the projects we are currently planning that hopefully will include Portugal in some way or another, and Afonso Salcedo being considered one of the top high-tech cinema gurus.

Thanks for the love!

IST Talk

The talk Afonso Salcedo of Sutro Studios gave at IST in Lisbon, Portugal, on February 25th is now online. You can watch the full-length talk which runs at around 1 hour or so. Please note that the slides are not filmed due to copyright issues and property ownership by Disney/Pixar. They own the material, not us, so they weren't allowed to be filmed.

Let us know what you think, but you can see the video here:


Cinebox

We made a national TV appearance in Portugal, during our recent trip there and Afonso Salcedo's talk at IST. The interview is in Portuguese and just recently aired on TVI, one of the main broadcasters there. Check it out and you'll see a brief appearance of our website and our quest for ideas for producing a feature film in Portugal, or about Portugal. Let's make it happen!

IST

The talk Afonso Salcedo gave at IST went tremendously well. Over 400 students came to the talk and we've received dozens of emails thanking us for the inspiring one hour sharing of ideas, experience and tips on film and cinematography. Couldn't be more excited and thankful to have met such wonderful people and meet some of the talented computer scientists and artists of the new generation. And on a more personal note, we hope we get to work with some of them sooner or later. Portugal is full of incredible talent. Here's a photo of the audience courtesy of Miguel Araujo Photography.
