Pixit Media has announced that VFX expert Dave Goodbourn has joined the company as Head of Workflow Development. Focused on customer success, this appointment strengthens Pixit Media’s workflow consultancy services, helping clients manage their data more efficiently and harness Cloud technologies for remote working, global collaboration, scalability, archiving and business continuity.
Goodbourn has over 20 years industry experience including complex VFX pipeline design and delivery in the Cloud – most recently as Head of Systems at Milk VFX. As part of Pixit Media’s broad technical team, he will share his frontline expertise with customers, providing consultancy to design and build efficient on-prem, remote and Cloud workflows for VFX and Post-Production.
“As a Pixit Media customer, I could always rely on our PixStor storage platform to deliver high-performance no matter what I threw at it and I can wholeheartedly say the same of Pixit’s technical team. I have always been impressed by their deep understanding of workflows and genuine care to help overcome any challenge we faced,” said Goodbourn. “I’m delighted to now be on the other side of the table as part of this team, helping media organisations find better ways to tackle demanding projects and deadlines.”
Unlike other storage providers, Pixit Media really gets under the skin of the workflow to deliver a complete solution that adapts to changing needs, whether on-prem, in the Cloud or across both. Working closely with Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud and Azure, Dave has already helped a number of high-profile Pixit Media clients extend their workflows into the Cloud, addressing immense VFX pipeline demands whilst keeping control of costs.
“At Pixit, we’ve brought together a unique team of experts firmly rooted in the media industry, fanatical about driving our customers’ success,” said Barry Evans, Pixit Media’s CIO. “Dave’s strong technical background, commercial understanding and invaluable real-world experience make him a real asset to our pre-sales team – strengthening our in-house skills to help our customers deliver and grow their business.”
