The current workflow we use in the VFX production of Spec Ops: The Line has been dubbed "Thin Slices" due to its quick and highly iterative approach. We use it to get a better handle on the issues presented by the interdisciplinary work and leverage as much potential as possible. The topic focuses on how this principle allowed us to cope with a quickly growing team, buffer various schedule changes and keep morale high when finalising the project.
