DreamWorks: Allegory

Enabling teams to visualize workflows previously buried in code

A screen design of DreamWorks Allegory

Animated film production is a highly complex process that requires intense planning and coordination. Expanding this process to a cloud-based production pipeline required DreamWorks to rethink decades of standard operating procedure in the film industry.

In coordination with DreamWorks and DXC, argo designed Allegory, a tool that allows teams to visualize preexisting workflows previously buried in code. Users can also utilize Allegory to author new workflows collaboratively based on individual project specifications.
