)-- Accelerated Pictures has been accepted into the Microsoft Ventures Accelerator Spring 2015 cohort in Seattle. The Microsoft Ventures Accelerator is a mentor-driven program aimed at empowering key startups. Microsoft Ventures recognizes the evolutionary potential of Accelerated Pictures' use of technology and its impact on industries.
“We are excited to be part of the Microsoft Ventures Accelerator. The program mentors and connections they can provide will slingshot our next release of Filmmaker Live.”
- Don Alvarez, President Accelerated Pictures
Filmmaker Live is changing how Filmmakers plan their projects by addressing two of their biggest problems: Reducing time on set and helping share their vision. “Our fast, easy, visual film planning app helps filmmakers discover shots and build films with their team before production,” said Don Alvarez. Using virtual 3D sets and non-linear planning, Filmmakers can explore their options when planning and make better decisions for production.
“Communicating your vision is hard,” added Don Alvarez, “most filmmakers find their clients and backers have a hard time understanding the creative vision of a story. An edited animation lets everyone see.”
Advanced capabilities like Non-linear planning let filmmakers can make changes to their edited footage without having to re-do their work. Collaboration features let you present your project, invite others to work on project, or work together on your project, across the table or country.
Accelerated Pictures presented Filmmaker Live at 2014 Directors Guild of America Digital Days, highlighting important new technologies that will impact film and at 2014 SWSX Interactive Festival for Entertainment and Content.
