The coronavirus pandemic may push more visual effects work into the cloud. That business, like many others, is heavily dependent on cramming as many people as possible into office spaces where they can work on tight deadlines, racing to create the kind of elaborate digital wonders that enhance movies and television shows.
But that’s no longer possible in the age of COVID-19. Visual effects, like most post-production work, must now be accomplished remotely as people social distance in an effort to stop the spread of the disease. Arch Platform Technologies, a provider of cloud-based infrastructure for visual effects companies, has seen interest in its product soar in the wake of the shutdown.
