Look Effects, the Hollywood-based visual effects company whose stellar credits include The Producers, The Life Aquatic, The Passion of the Christ, Into the Blue, Malcolm in the Middle and CSI: NY, announced today that it has been successfully using Apple products on the hit television series Bones (20th Century Fox Television) and Criminal Minds (CBS) and film projects including Stick It and The Fountain.

Look Effects (http://www.lookfx.com), renowned for its visual effects work in feature film, television and commercial productions selected Apple solutions such as the SAN and G5 for a number of reasons including speed, reliability and their effectiveness as an all-around compositing solution.

“Our business is extremely deadline driven with some projects being delivered less than 24 hours before screen time,” said Look Effects Founder and President Mark Driscoll. “We needed a solution that could produce results in a short time frame. After evaluating numerous offerings, we determined that the best solution was an Apple solution.”

“Compared to the old system we had been utilizing, the G5 has reduced time by over one-third,” said Visual Effects Supervisor Max Ivins. “The G5 gives us incredible speed at the workstation, allows us to work with extremely large files, and is by far one of the most reliable solutions available to our compositors providing real-time HD and fast playback at each station.”
