Conductor's mission is to accelerate the VFX and Animation industry's transition from local, fixed infrastructure to an on-demand, cloud-based model. Leveraging the power of remote cloud rendering and seamlessly integrating with production workflow, the Company is a core enabling service and money saver for its clients. Conductor was spun out of Atomic Fiction, a visual effects company founded by Kevin Baillie and Ryan Tudhope where the product was used on blockbusters including The Walk, Deadpool, and Game of Thrones.
