Frame.io, the world's leading video review and collaboration platform, has just released the series finale of its video tutorial series, “Workflow From Home,” which explores how to enable remote video workflows through tech breakdowns and deep-dive user case studies. In episode 13, the final of the series, Michael Cioni, Global SVP of Innovation at Frame.io, reflects on the past 100 days since the series premiered before diving into predictions for the future of video creation and the film industry as a whole.
“Over the last three months, all of us have been experiencing a new form of normal,” Cioni says in the episode. “During this journey between the old and the new normal, we’ve all faced some enormous challenges, but I’m finding we are on the edge of making an innovative breakthrough.”
Watch Episode 13 of “Workflow From Home” now for some predictions for the future of video and to discover new technological breakthroughs that may result from changes to the way video professionals work.
A Look Back at “Workflow From Home”
Throughout the 13-episode series, Cioni walks viewers through the technical aspects of switching to a remote, cloud, or hybrid-cloud post-production setup. Diving deep into specific workflows for remote editing, visual effects, finishing, and color grading, he interviewed a number of video professionals, including Conan O’Brien lead editor Robert Ashe, VFX pioneer Scott Squires, and Panavision’s Light Iron finishing team. The result is a comprehensive video series that addresses the many aspects and challenges of migrating a brick-and-mortar post facility to a remote workflow.
Work From Home by the Numbers
To help inform the series’ content, the team at Frame.io conducted multiple customer surveys to gather data around user feedback on remote work. The survey results revealed that 73 percent of respondents were equally or more productive when working remotely. Before quarantine, more than half were already working without direct client interaction or supervision, and this number increased by 10 percent during the quarantine. These results demonstrate a strong case for long-term adoption of remote workflows.
Each episode of “Workflow From Home” explores how video professionals have adapted to and embraced changes they may have never before considered, and how oftentimes, these changes led to more productive and efficient work.
Cioni concludes, “A lot has changed in our world. A lot is changing in our industry. But what hasn’t changed is that people will always need to tell stories, maybe now more than ever. Stories are what keep us connected, and I think that connection is what’s enabling us to document this extraordinary time in history.”
