One of the greatest things about creating storage software and hardware for our industry is that we get to work with some incredible studios and networks whose artists pour their hearts into their work and create award-winning productions.
We’re proud to work with the best in the world, and we love to hear that our products have helped transform the workflow of our customers. Here are two of our most recent customers who have shared their stories with us…
Michigan based, Gorilla, a commercial and entertainment based production company, has many stories to tell.
Starting as a two-man venture in a basement, Gorilla set out on a journey to find success in the industry. Ten years later, the company is now a thriving community of over 30+ artists in a collective space, collaborating on the production of award-winning commercials, documentaries, music videos and animations. Now with the inception of an LA division, GRLA, they will be seeking to expand their theatrical and narrative reel.
As Gorilla continues to grow, so have their workflow demands. Thanks to SNS EVO, there’s a solution that fits perfectly into their unique and synergistic style.
Leasing a large space, Gorilla subleases offices and/or workstations out to various freelance artists. This allows them to pool their resources on projects and tap into the many different artists’ talents and interests. It’s an ideal format for fueling creativity, but has proven to have workflow efficiency challenges — a system that provides little safety and security for media assets and time consuming methods of sharing and transferring files. more »
Based at Ealing Studios in London, the oldest continuously working film studio in the world, Met Film Post is one-third of one of the UK’s most remarkable film organizations, Met Film.
Met Film combines three leading-edge companies, Met Film School, Met Film Production and Met Film Post. By providing hands-on professional experience for students, award-winning productions and front line post-production technology services, the vanguard organization creates a unique and a symbiotic working setting for aspiring filmmakers and established experts.
When Met Film Post needed to make a significant change in their post-production workflow, they turned to SNS EVO to provide a more accessible, collaborative and cost-efficient shared storage solution.
“We were looking for a system to replace our Xsan that would allow us to do shared collaborative Avid offline services,” stated Matthew Troughton, Senior Colorist and Online Editor at Met Film Post. “Bringing the EVO on-board allowed us to fully provide Avid offline and online services. Prior to EVO, our editors were not able to work collaboratively on projects in such a developed way. EVO gave us the flexibility we needed and immediately increased our productivity.” more »
