NEW YORK—GPL Technologies is currently providing IT and
engineering support to The Molecule as it prepares to move to a new production
facility at 29th and Broadway in Manhattan. 
GPL assisted in
designing the new facility’s shared storage environment and workflow. It also
supplied and installed workstations and software for visual effects production,
design and other functions. “We’re operating at a higher tier of capacity
than ever before,” says The Molecule CEO Chris Healer. “GPL’s consulting and
expertise have made this expansion possible in a way that few other companies
could.”

The new facility will be able to immediately accommodate 75
artists, up from a current capacity of 65. The workflow was designed with
flexibility in mind, so that The Molecule can quickly add more artists, or
alter the configuration of its team to align with specific project needs.
“In the future, we are expecting our staff to grow to 120,”
says Marketing Manager Audra Coulombe. “There is a lot to consider when
building a new production facility in the current environment. Post production
is moving to higher and higher definition. Streaming services like Netflix and
Hulu are now sending us footage at 4K and even 6K, and each VR production
involves much more footage than a conventional project. So, we’ve designed our
new facility to handle ten times our current capacity. We’re
doing it right and planning ahead.”
The Molecule, which specializes in visual effects, motion
graphics, and virtual reality, selected GPL for its expertise in production IT.
“We worked closely with The Molecule’s team to determine their needs and
building an ideal IT infrastructure,” notes GPL Technologies Account Manager
Chris Peterson. “The Molecule needs to be on the cutting edge of media and
entertainment technology.”
After The Molecule’s new facility launches, GPL will
continue to provide the company with technology and IT support. “We sometimes
get flooded with work and need to ramp up on a day’s notice,” Coulombe says.
“GPL knows post production and they understand our needs. It’s been a great
relationship.”
