VIDEO: ILM's Kevin Clark on LucasFilm's Data Demands


Although this video is three years old, its still worth watching to see the hardware ILM had and have to produce movies such as Rango.  Back in 2011 they had 8500 CPU cores!  I might be able to play Skyrim in full resolution with that.
Arik Hesseldahl talks to Kevin Clark of LucasFilm's Industrial Light & Magic about the data center that serves the famously geeky and CGI-intensive company.

Watch the video here.
