Interactive entertainment including game development also has close ties to software development, and that community seems to be embracing agile itself as evidenced in recent job postings. However, this site will focus on specifics in VFX and feature animation. Additionally, we’ll explore how the Agile thinking pertains to the health of the VFX industry.
