Born out of the hearts and minds of artists looking for a way to move past the organization of collaboration and truly just collaborate, NIM is a browser based management tool created by artists for artists to track the post-production pipeline from start to finish. From asset creation and shot tracking through bidding, scheduling, and actualization, NIM is customizable to meet the needs of any studio. We are extremely excited to share NIM with you in the hopes that it will enable existing artists and foster new studios, expanding the business of creation that we love.
FROM THOSE WHO KNOW
NIM has arrived with a level of simplicity and elegance to the very complicated world of post production pipelines. Bringing a complete solution out of the box (no programming team required) feature set currently only seen at larger post houses which have taken years to intergrate and refine.Saker Klippsten
NIM‘s innovative design has streamlined our workflow and made the process more efficient. It has been a useful tool in encouraging better communication between project managers and artists. The program’s overall structure easily keeps your project organized and accessible to its users.Shannon Sweeney
I have worked at many Visual Effects facilities doing all kinds of work. They cover the gamut from huge companies to small boutiques. It is always a challenge to get artists up to speed on many of their pipelines because of complexity and artists lack of familiarity with different pipeline’s idiosyncrasies. Some small places lack a proper pipeline at all. In my experience there is no single tool that allows staff to quickly ramp up to speed on a project while maintaining long term scalability. After using the latest version of NIM I can unequivocally claim that it is a piece of software that fits that void. Built for artists and production staff by people who work in the industry and do real work. NIM has really grown into a robust tool with all kinds of useful features without getting overly complex. It can be customized to show you what you need to see. It is also integrated into my software packages of choice which makes it a end-to-end-solution. All without daunting scripting or a dedicated IT staff.Mark Wurts
