Lowering Costs With The Cloud

Lowering Costs With The Cloud

In all businesses keeping costs down is a major concern. The film industry is no exception. In an industry where it costs £30,000 just to remove a beer label with special effects, cuts have to be made somewhere. Especially as people are buying less DVDs.

How can cloud computing save money for those in the film industry?

Improves productivity

Joining the cloud massively increases productivity. You can download, upload and back up easily Your team can work together easily no matter where they are. In the cloud things don’t take days or months. They take hours.

Lowers costs

Now tasks previously undertaken by people can be done in the cloud or by a machine. This means your work force can be actually doing their job, rather than menial tasks.

It let’s you work smarter, rather than harder

Instead of taking hours to email large attachments or downloading files you can just use your cloud service.

Lack of commitment

If there is one thing people in the film industry know it’s ‘no one knows anything’. Things can change at any moment. Luckily you can just rent services from your cloud service provider.

Keep it simple stupid

Cloud computing makes everything easier in a world where everything is hard. There is no more looking for things wondering where they are and everything is one, safe, secure, place. Which brings me to my next point

Prevents loss

You can’t lose the documents or the hard drive. I have lost footage in the past and nothing is more soul-destroying.

Send Video

Sending video through the internet has always been a long and arduous task but cloud computing makes this as easy as possible.

Connection

Being able to connect from people all around the world is essential for filmmakers. The cloud makes this not only possible, but also incredibly easy.

In the film industry people like to think of themselves as artistic and not business minded, but sometimes this is at the expense of learning all about the latest in technology. This doesn’t happen with the cloud though. There is just something so new, fun and creative about it. It is like having a global office that everybody can just tap into at any time.

Anyone still on the fence regarding cloud computing should take note that Steven Spielberg’s company Dreamworks uses the linux-based Red Hat Cloud. Where Spielberg leads others are sure to follow. In fact Dreamworks made Monsters Vs Aliens with the Red Hat Cloud along with the latest 3D authoring tools.
