Drama Republic and Eight Rooks, the production companies behind acclaimed drama series The Honourable Woman, chose Aframe’s cloud video platform with the aim of expediting its global production workflow.
“With over three months’ worth of filming on location in the UK and Morocco, Aframe gave us a platform that let all our production team keep in touch with the latest cuts and promos each day –across our entire workflow,” said Susy Liddell, director of production for Drama Republic.
“We appreciated the added peace of mind that Aframe provided in letting us control who could view content, and during specified time windows – while still being easy to use for everyone. That includes the edit assistant doing the uploading and sharing, to the producers and directors viewing content on mobile devices.”
The Honourable Woman is an eight-hour political thriller starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and set against an international backdrop in the US, the Middle East and London. Drama Republic had edit assistants upload proxies to Aframe’s secure private cloud, where Aframe created a link to the clips and automatically sent it with an expiration date to team members and execs, who could review and approve content online, or download it locally for viewing offline.
“Television drama of this quality deserves the very best services to help expedite the production,” said David Peto, CEO of Aframe. “Getting your content reviewed and approved quickly, efficiently and securely is still far harder than it needs to be. At Aframe we’re delighted to help Drama Republic and other production companies to get their work to the edit suite faster and in a more organised way.”
