Milton Ngan - Life After LOTR

Milton Ngan, Digital Operations Manager, Weta Digital Ltd.

Having spent the last six years overcoming challenge after challenge producing LOTR (Lord of the Rings), it has become apparent that there are other things than this project. We have accumulated a significant legacy of software and hardware technology during this journey. Now that we have reached our destination, there are new roads to travel. We have a unique opportunity to shed the dead weight and re-sharpen our tools based upon the lessons we have learned. At this crossroad, we also have a number of choices to make, Linux, OS X, or Windows? The choices are not easy for technical, political, and religious reasons. After experiencing the freedom and frustration with a predominantly open source platform, this is a troubling decision, especially when open source platforms are not looking so cost effective anymore. The show must go on, and it will.
