Crafty Apes Relies on Qumulo for 2D Compositing for La La Land Film

Crafty Apes is a powerhouse in 2D Compositing, but even it was pushed in creating the 8,000+ frame opening sequence for the hit film La La Land. Fortunately, the studio knew it could rely on its Qumulo storage cluster—and more importantly, the company behind it—to move mountains of data in order to deliver.

At more than 5 minutes long and over 8,000 frames, the La La Land opening sequence dwarfs the film industry’s average of two to five seconds and a hundred frames between cuts.
