It is quite interesting to know that adobe company recently published 10 of the films nominated for the award ceremony by the academy, Oscar’s and that have made use of the company’s applications. Every story you saw in these feature films is part of a process that involves Adobe. Among the films to mention are three documentaries and some incredible films like All at Once Everywhere, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and Top Gun: Maverick.
In addition, among the applications that have been used the most by directors and teams that include Premiere Pro, Photoshop, After effects, Illustrator and Frame.io. The editing, assembly, creation and collaboration between teams is a fundamental part of projects as important and of such magnitude as the nominated productions. There are also programs like Adobe Substance 3D for creating increasingly realistic 3D objects and effects.
Adobe’s pride is reflected in the trust and effort for filmmakers with such profitable applications in highly creative work. This also prompts the company to push the limits of their own technologies in film “to create in new media and collaborate in new ways, from anywhere.”
The high competitiveness between filmmakers and productions leads to a better presentation and demand. Whether you’re more original, impactful, fluid, or bold in your presentation, better tools and creative collaboration are in order.
