Building the perfect creative production workflow


Companies are being asked to get higher quality results out of creative efforts, while at the same time having fewer resources and time as they had in the past. Those challenges, coupled with the inherently chaotic nature of creative production, have forced creative professionals to try to bring order to disorder so that they can achieve those goals in an ever-competitive marketplace.

  • What is the progression of the ideal workflow?
  • How do we move from an ad hoc, chaotic environment, to an efficient creative production machine?
  • Who are the right people to manage each phase of the workflow?
  • What is the best allocation of roles and responsibilities for maximizing results?

In the second edition of the Creative Ops Breakfast Series (Oct. 22, 2015), Stephen Hunking, Director of Studio Services and Asset Management at Showtime, Wiesia Mancewicz, Principal at High Touch Studio, and Lauren Philson, Digital Assets Manager for The Rockefeller Foundation, joined us in our TriBeCa headquarters to share their experience in building creative operations processes and workflows, taking them to the next level, and discussing the challenges they faced, from internal obstacles to managing external and internal technologies.
