  • the challenge

    'The Art Scene' is a captivating 13-part docuseries celebrating the diverse art forms of Singapore. While the filming took place in the heart of Singapore, the intricate post-production process was distributed across 8 different locations. Facing the constraints of a modest budget, the team needed to seek out cost-effective regions for outsourcing their post-production tasks.

    With team members scattered across these various locations, the primary challenge revolved around bridging geographical divides and fostering seamless collaboration. The mission was to minimize the communication gap and establish a streamlined channel for the team to harmoniously work together. Achieving a shared vision and effective coordination was anything but straightforward, but it was a challenge that our team was determined to conquer.

  • the solution

    We introduced the team to Postudio, not only to address their significant collaboration challenges but also to provide them with a more versatile and accessible way of working. The production team seamlessly uploaded their high-resolution 4k footage from Singapore, making it readily available for the post-production team to assemble, organize and create.

    Postudio's centralized storage solution granted the entire team effortless access to these valuable assets. Simultaneously, the Review & Approval system empowered team members to share insights, exchange feedback, and align their creative vision effectively.

    Furthermore, Postudio offered the team the option to work with their 'shot on 4k' footage on a cloud-based system. Whether they required the power of Premiere Pro or DaVinci, whether on a 32GB system or a 128GB one, we provided a dynamic platform that allowed them to request resources as needed, for the duration as they required.

    The result? A no-latency performance system was delivered to them whether it was for editing, grading or graphics, whether they were working from cafes or couches, on big, heavy setups or basic laptops

  • the results

    The outcome was an impeccable 13-episode series, one that the entire team could genuinely take pride in. Regardless of the time zones that separated them, the team effortlessly came together to collaborate on this project. Their communication flowed seamlessly, and their workflow was fine-tuned to perfection.

    With Postudio they were able to cut down on quite a few expenses such as hardware upgrades, storage etc. Despite the shoestring budget, the platform's flexibility allowed for resource optimization and allocation, making it an invaluable asset to the project's success.
