Movie Studio Saves Production Time with High-Speed File Transfer

Challenge: When a studio is filming a movie, they often hold onto the raw footage filmed that day for later reviews and processing. The film industry refers to the raw footage as “dailies.”However, when a major film studio and Globalscape customer needed a fast and reliable way to send their dailies from a remote location in New Zealand to the studio’s special effects and editing crew in Los Angeles, they hit an obstacle. The studio was relying on shipping DVD dailies during the production process. Unfortunately, international shipping costs were skyrocketing, and the risk of the dailies getting lost or stolen in transit was great

Solution: The studio had multiple big budget films being produced internationally and on location. They were looking for a managed file transfer solution that could address multiple priorities, including:

  • Global transfer of large, media-heavy files

  • Fast and secure file transfers for strict deadlines

  • Mobile file transfers for the ability to send large files from anywhere
