Join Quasar Science on their Instagram live, this Saturday, April 11th at 2:00 pm PST for a discussion between two cinematographers about the collaborative art form that is film making; where the Arts and Sciences meet a practical approach.

Frame.io's New "Workflow from Home" Series – Episodes 3 & 4 are now up

CioniFrameIOFrame.io has launched its new “Workflow from Home” series hosted by Michael Cioni, Frame.io’s Global SVP of Innovation and DCS Advisory Board member, a brand new video series developed as a response to the COVID-19 outbreak and transition to home offices.
This series is specifically designed to help teams who’ve been working in brick-and-mortar facilities quickly transition to a remote workflow. Productions have ground to a halt, but the truth remains: consumers want to keep watching new shows, so studios need to find ways to keep putting them out. The craving for content might be stronger now than ever before.

Cioni writes: “Our goal is to identify the steps and dive deep into how you can shift from an on-premises workflow with centralized network storage to one that’s based either partially, or entirely, in the cloud.” The guide, which launched Monday, March 23rd, with an intro from Michael Cioni https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDRBPtxW2w4

Episode 1 - Setting up at Home: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtXX2zWBpio

Episode 2 - Air Gap Editing: https://frame.io/remotework/workflow-from-home-episode-2/?utm_source=mktg&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=workflow_from_home

Episode 3 – Remote Post House: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a109aR0kVk8 Michael Cioni interviews Lucas Harger, Editor & Partner at Bruton Stroube/Outpost, a video production and post-production studio. Learn how Lucas set up a remote video workflow for his team by using Premiere Pro and the Frame.io integration to mirror their onsite server’s structure.

Episode 4 - Offline Team Editing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6rHlFIDKHo David Stevens, Editor at The Assembly Rooms in London and The Bothy on the Irish coast, explains how he set up a remote video post-production workflow for his episodic TV series team by using Avid with hard drive clones and Frame.io so the team could collaborate from home.

By using a combination of local storage and Frame.io, both Lucas and David made the transition quickly, and both are still meeting their deadlines easily.

Also, Frame.io has created a microsite - https://frame.io/remotework/ - which will be updated weekly with new videos exploring how to enable a remote workflow from start to finish, with the goal of helping folks get up and running in response to the new realities we’re now facing.
