Academy Of Art University’s Avengers: Infinity War to Hit Home

By now, the majority of people who are going to see Avengers: Infinity War has seen it. It is getting ready to be released on home formats. The movie is first going to be available for streaming then physical formats. It has shatter plenty of records in its theatrical run. It is considered the best Marvel film as of yet with Avengers 4 to be released on May of 2019. Everything has worked together well enough to bring audiences an immersive experience that would stay with them for a long time. All of the elements of the movie have come together well.

One element that worked well in telling the story is the visual effects. The team behind the visual effects is led by Jan Philip Cramer. He is the leader of Digital Domain which has over seen all of the visual effects of this Marvel film. He has taken everything he has learned from Academy of Art University and has even come up with some of his own techniques in order to bring the action to life. Among the notable sequences in Infinity War is the big fight between the Avengers and Thanos on the Titan planet.

This big Marvel film was a lot more than a big action spectacle. It told a rather compelling and human story where it showed not only a clash of characters but a clash of philosophies as well. Even though Thanos is a villain for what he does in the film, he has intentions and even examples that are strangely understandable. The animation team headed by Academy of Art University’s Cramer has helped to bring that story to life for the audience so that they can be caught up in the key moments of the film. Soon, people will be able to take the event home.

 

For Desiree Perez, The Spotlight Does Not Become Her

Roc Nation Chief Operating Officer Desiree “Des” Perez has spent the last two decades trying to remain out of the spotlight. The long-time music industry executive keeps a low profile in her job running one of the world’s largest music conglomerates. That does not mean that her work is not recognized. Earlier this year Billboard Magazine named Perez as one of the most influential executives in the music industry. While the name “Des Perez” may be unknown to casual music fans, it is one of the most respected names to those in the music business.

Des Perez is a New York City native who spent much of the 1990s and 2000s as one of the premier night club, music, entertainment venue managers in NYC. She has been a close friend and advisor to rap music icon Jay-Z for years and when he was looking for someone to run his newly-formed Roc Nation in 2009, he chose Perez. The move was a bold one at the time but has proven to be the right one in the past 10 years, as Perez has led the company to great profits. She is known in the industry as one of the most fierce negotiators, being the primary deal-maker for Roc Nation. By Jay-Z’s own admission, there is not a major business decision that he does not run by Perez.

Perez was also named by Jay-Z as the CEO of TIDAL, a music streaming service, in 2016. She quickly made a big move by negotiating a deal with Sprint that gave the telecommunications giant a 33% stake for $200 million. The deal was heralded by many in the industry as one of the best deals in recent years. TIDAL will now have exclusive access to Sprint’s 45 million subscribers and it has already paid huge dividends.
