As we slide into August and the dog days of summer, production companies and production personnel keep asking me the same question over and over. That question is: “Are we there yet?” It seems to be the overwhelming theme over the last month doesn’t it? To be honest, I think that the jury is still out. In some areas remote truck production “seems” to be working. Some mobile units are carefully rolling out and taking on new “remote” productions full stream ahead. Other truck owners are still taking a 'wait and see' approach and working in what I call a “hybrid” work model. In the truest sense of the word we are talking remote production but with a lot of caveats.
As 2020 comes to a close and the media industry begins to look to the future, it’s clear that long-term archiving and remote production will be two of the most important trends in 2021.
In the past there have been many good reasons why someone might choose to hire or work with a remote editor, however during the time of Covid-19 it’s become more of a necessity. If you’re planning on working with an off-site editor, there are some things you can do that will:
The year 2020 presented itself with a different face. One that most of us never anticipated. The pandemic has forced us into a new reality. A lot of team leaders are beginning to realize that the answer to surviving in this new world is ‘flexibility’ – a break from the traditional way of doing things. You would want to know how to boost productivity while working remotely, even when you’re in the film/TV production industry.
They say necessity is the mother of invention. 2020 is a case in point. Social distancing and widespread lockdowns during the coronavirus pandemic have fast-tracked a global digital transformation. Billions of people have found new ways to work remotely and connect with each other. In the audiovisual industry, productions have found new ways to continue, facilitated by live streaming, virtual production tools and video conferencing technology, not to mention super-fast connectivity thanks to 4G, 5G and fibre optics. Post-production, in some cases, has actually thrived.
Color is one part of the creative process that has distinct advantages to being completed in person. Typically, you’re working with the original footage, which can be quite large and hard to transfer over the internet. If you’re the client, it’s best to see exactly what the colorist is seeing. If you’re the colorist, you definitely want your client approving the color on your color calibrated monitor.
It’s been a harrowing year and a half for the video production world. Producers froze development, sets became ghost towns and the post production world faced the challenge of being separated from their SANs, fiber channel networks, and fast, redundant shared storage solutions.
With COVID-19 corporate shut downs and a massive shift to remote or furloughed workforce, the post-production industry and their teams have been one of the hardest hit. Teams are scrambling for solutions with a limited remote workforce that allows post-production projects to continue while maintaining social distance.
Over the past several years, two major technological developments have occurred in tandem, both of which have made wide-ranging and revolutionary changes in the world of media post-production. One of these developments is the explosion in sophisticated yet affordable software; the other is the exponential growth of cloud computing.
As many people are going to be working remotely for the foreseeable future, it’s important to find ways to keep teams engaged and up to date. Just because you’re not able to be in the same office doesn’t mean things like training should get neglected.
