BOXXER: Sabour Amirazodi
Creative director and visual effects producer Sabour Amirazodi (Seventh Dream Media, Inc.) is a BOXXER whose projects include a Shanghai theme park experience, visual effects for Netflix features, interactive animation for a Disney commercial, and music videos for Britney Spears, Ke$ha, The Black Keys, Ariana Grande, and other artists. Currently, he oversees the graphics and visual requirements for TNT network’s Chasing the Cure, a groundbreaking, weekly live program which also relies on a 24/7 digital platform to help people suffering from undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, or uncured medical conditions. Sabour also creates the internal assets displayed on stage for the live broadcast.
Sabour’s BOXX workstation computer of choice is the APEXX W4L ProViz equipped with a 28-core (56 thread) Intel® Xeon® W-3275 processor and 128GB of memory. In addition to the latest Intel processor technology, the powerful system includes four NVIDIA® Quadro RTX™ 6000 GPUs. Purpose-built to accelerate rendering, simulation, and other GPU applications, the highly versatile APEXX W4L is ideal for motion media applications like Cinema 4D. Intel Xeon 3200 series processors offer up to 4.6GHz with Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0, 64 processor PCIe lanes for more I/O throughput for networking, graphics, and storage, and new Intel Deep Learning Boost for accelerated AI performance.
“What I’m able to accomplish on the APEXX W4L with a 28-core Intel Xeon W and multiple NVIDIA Quadro RTX GPUs is incredible,” says Amirazodi. “It’s a monster that handles anything I throw at it. From fluid dynamics in real time, to massive 3D scenes and render previews in seconds, this is the solution I have been looking for and BOXX is the company I keep going back to.”
