Different Production, Same Producers.

Updated: Nov 1, 2021

For many countries, film production is back after the Covid pandemic, but for many, many others, Covid is a very present danger.

Even where film production has resumed, everything is not going to go back to normal.

No film production business has been untouched by pandemic, and the challenges have been acute, where Brands, Agencies and Producers pressed pause.

For a while.

Producers found ways to solve those production challenges, and the most universal change was the rapid adoption and development of remote production processes.

Clients now view their live shoots from their homes and offices and enabled Directors on the other side of the world to direct their shoots. Or even from around the corner.

Remote Filming technology and processes have been continually refined and improved.

And whilst many filming and safety protocols, brought in during the pandemic, will likely remain permanent, and shoots will take more time and cost more money than they did a year ago, remote filming enables productions to continue.

The ability to shoot remotely and collaboratively with a Director, Clients, Creatives, and the Production Team is becoming more and more streamlined and cost effective, largely because of the technology’s flexibility and reliability.

Safety should always be paramount, but the bigger the production, the bigger the cost and time implication for the shoot. Time is money.

Everyone in film and stills production, whether in advertising or movies, knows the impact of health screenings, social distancing, and personal protective equipment on their shoots.

Remote Filming works with production teams all over the world, assisting them to shoot more safely, help crews remain socially distanced, and reduce production costs.

Cost savings using remote filming in travel and hospitality are obvious, and not just for international productions.

The environment is a big winner, too. Remote production means greener production.

But unless the technology makes it easy for remote viewers to be part of the shoot, then the production team will have even more stress.

Unlike other systems, Remote Filming facilitates unlimited viewers see the stream on any device – Mac or PC, iOS, Windows, or Android – 100% secure and with near-zero latency, under 0.2s.

Clients don’t always, even rarely, have Mac laptops or desktops, so this is a huge advantage for productions. They don’t have to download any apps to view – and their corporate restrictions usually prohibit them doing so anyway.

There is no need for expensive hardware or specialist crew. Remote Filming works with or without playback, integrating easily with all playback systems and needs only a laptop, capture card and internet connection.
