Congratulations to our talented Head of Pipeline Benoit Leveau, who deservedly scooped a 2015 Shotgun Pipeline Award for his ‘Smart Publish Notifications’ pipeline tool while he was over at Siggraph in LA this summer.

Shotgun’s Pipeline Awards honours excellence in pipeline tool development and contributions made to the pipeline community.

Benoit’s ‘Smart Publishing Tool’ is a simple, powerful tool that grew out of experience; it ties together publishing and communication, connecting people inside a small studio in an elegant way. It sends ‘smart’ publish notification emails based on pre-defined rules (rigging to animation, lighting to comp, CC to the HOD of the department, etc.)

Check out his cool trophy and watch Benoit’s interview to find out more…the beers are on us Benoit:)

“We are super proud of Benoit. Our London and Cardiff studios share a seamless workflow and Benoit’s Smart Publish tool helps ensure seamless communication to support this.”

“All of us here at Shotgun are massive fans of our industry’s Pipeline community, who selflessly invest so much blood, sweat and tears into tools that make so many impossible productions possible, and help artists spend more of their time being creative,” said Don Parker, co-founder of Shotgun and Autodesk Senior Director.

“It’s an honour to acknowledge this community and specifically celebrate truly excellent pipeline work this last year.”
