HP Makes Final Cut with AFI Filmmakers

The AFI Conservatory, the American Film Institute’s Master of Fine Arts program, is now using HP Workstations to create its next cinematic projects.

The 20 HP Z 800 Workstations feature 3-D, animation, stop-motion video, and breakthrough lighting, sounds and background capability. The same workstations were used in the creation of blockbusters such as “Avatar,” “Slumdog Millionaire” and the “Shrek” movies.

“The marriage of art and technology in storytelling is here,” said Robert Mandel, AFI Conservatory dean. “HP’s generosity and the HP Z Workstations provide AFI fellows the latest tools to tell their tales.”

Other creative industries also use the HP technology, such as running shoe and race-car designers and animators.

“It is imperative to provide the next great filmmakers with the tools they need to produce the films that will inspire their generation,” said Jeff Wood, director of Workstation Worldwide Marketing for HP. “Customers around the world choose HP workstations for the best in performance and reliability, and we need future filmmakers pushing the limits of our workstations and bringing out the best in HP.”
