Unusual times call for new ways of working. As the COVID-19 crisis deepens, it is becoming obvious that, to maintain business continuity the Media & Entertainment industry must pivot rapidly towards remote collaborative production. While companies across the industry scramble to put together new workflows, it is worth examining some of the successful businesses that have been working this way for years.

The facility uses EditShare’s Flow and QScan tools amongst others to ensure that its staff can work collaboratively wherever they’re based in a truly distributed workflow.

Investments are made into people and technology. It’s a fascinating set up and a fascinating story, as the workflows that have helped them buck the recent crisis were actually established coming out of the global financial crash of 2008.
