Client Case Study: Temple Street Productions
“globaledit has been the best company I have ever worked with. Our account manager was kind, funny, and stunningly accessible. The software is so easy to use and it repeatedly reduces the stress of the job.”
— Cynthia Amsden, President, Roundstone Communications
CHALLENGETalent approvals have always proven to be a daunting task, with tight deadline requirements and constant interaction among several players including the networks, producers, agents and talent. Roundstone Communications and Temple Street Productions were looking for an easy and powerful way to manage the talent approval process for Orphan Black, a TV Series produced for both Space and BBC America. Other vendors often only provided complicated work arounds and lacked the flexibility to overcome simple disruptions such as an on location upload. The standard time from production to file upload was upwards of 10 days, while an excessive time was spent moving assets to and from vendors. Talent and reps couldn’t access images or determine when an approval was completed.
SOLUTIONPartnering with globaledit immediately eliminated complex procedures. The dedicated support team organized and facilitated upload and delivery of all assets, and actively managed the approval process. globaledit became the central location for assets and information for all stakeholders involved in the process. Fast uploads, customized reporting and on-call production support helped to take the fuss out of talent approvals. All ten thousand photos were uploaded to globaledit and went through the approval process. Talent was also able to review and approve assets on mobile devices through the iPhone and iPad app.
RESULTSThe team streamlined the talent approval process with an intuitive, user-friendly platform that is vastly more sophisticated than previous tools. The company quickly incorporated globaledit’s additional features and leveraged it as their comprehensive system to access, preview and disseminate all photographic coverage. Dedicated support and active involvement of the globaledit team allowed for easy onboarding and adoption. Talent love the quick access and flexibility to make approvals on the go. The desktop and mobile app are used to maximum potential streamlining the turnaround time from shoot to adoption.
