Speed Is King – rendering at Outpost VFX
Finding the right renderer is more about creating stunning visuals – it’s about streamlining production and giving artists the space to explore their creativity. For the Bournemouth-based Outpost VFX, Redshift is the solution that meets those needs and more.
Outpost VFX is a visual effects vendor with a difference. This growing company isn’t located in the bustling hub of Los Angeles or nestled somewhere in the heart of London’s vibrant West End. Instead, Outpost rests on the far more relaxing southern shores of England, calling coastal beach town Bournemouth its home. It’s a far more tranquil way of life – not to mention a cheaper one.
