CURÓ - Extended Free Trials and Discounted Pricing
August 1, 2020 - Hollywood, California
UST Global Media Services has announced it will extend discounted access to its CURÓ / CURÓ BidMaker platform for companies impacted by the Coronavirus outbreak. The platform encompasses applications for VFX Budgeting, Scheduling and the creation of Custom Bid Packages with CURÓ BidMaker.
“As more and more companies are having their staff work from home, our clients haven’t missed a beat,” said Joyce Cox, the creator of CURÓ , who was the VFX Producer on "AVATAR", " JUNGLEBOOK" and many more. “We are extending discounts to any company who needs help in managing their business remotely during this time.”
"Right now this an excellent time in Hollywood to learn CURÓ, so we are extending trial accounts for an additional 30 days, and are offering 1/2 off our standard pricing", said Don Farr, CURÓ Product Manager. "Our clients are saying that CURÓ has been a huge help during the COVID pandemic, providing their VFX productions a great tool set for initial breakdown and preliminary budgeting production planning".
CURÓ was born out of the entertainment industry’s need for a unified system for the financial planning and management of visual effects, the fastest growing segment of the film industry. CURÓ was developed based on product-proven best practices and methodologies applied to some of the top-grossing VFX films of the past two decades including The Jungle Book,” “Men in Black III,” “The Great Gatsby,” “Avatar,” and “Titanic.” VFX Producers have used CURÓ to manage recent shows such as “The Mandalorian”, “American Gods”, “The 100” and the new feature release “Dune”.
Clients now include NETFLIX, DISNEY, WETA and many more.
Phase one of CURÓ focused on the VFX producers and studio VFX departments, providing tools for initial breakdown and preliminary budgeting of digital and overhead production costs. CURÓ BidMaker is available now. The CURÓ Vendor module with tools for a digital facility's detailed bidding of human and technical resources is slated for release the summer of 2020.
