To Shell and Back

For To Shell and Back I was brought into the project as a render wrangler and pipeline TD.  Over the course of the project I helped build a new pipeline, troubleshoot issues, and kept assets moving through the pipeline.  I reviewed on average 60 tasks per day for this short and promptly notified artist of issues.
