This paper gives the reader a behind the scenes look at how cloud native automation pipelines play a significant role in the production of Live Action, Visual Effects, and Animated content at Netflix Studios. Netflix’s Studio Orchestrator is used to connect creators around the globe by efficiently sharing, tracking, and transforming production data on a scalable architecture that can be customized to meet the needs of production. We will uncover how our approach provides a way for geographically distributed creative teams to share and collaborate on assets as well as save our developer’s time by leveraging shared infrastructure and shared components to build automation pipelines. We will use specific examples of automation pipelines that are in production today across Live Action, Visual Effects, and Animation to highlight the benefits of our approach to solving common industry workflows.
