LucidLink powers production workflows for award season contenders

LucidLink Filespaces has facilitated collaboration and workflows on the likes of the BBC's The Boy, the Mole, the Fox, and the Horse, and Hulu/Disney Plus drama The Bear

Cloud file storage company LucidLink has helped power the workflows of a number of TV and films up for gongs during the current awards season.

The BBC’s The Boy, the Mole, the Fox, and the Horse, which won the BAFTA for Best British Short Animation and is nominated for an Academy Award, used the company’s Filespaces technology to enable creatives across the globe to quickly access all their media assets from the cloud for the same production.

Animators on the film were based in the UK, United States, Australia, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, South Africa, Canada, and Brazil, using a variety of editing platforms including Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, Avid, Media Composer and Blackmagic Resolve.

“Artists were able to join the working team quickly, as it was easy for them to install LucidLink and be up and running rather than wait for machines to be delivered to start work. We would have run out of money if we had to ship high-powered machines or co-locate artists together,” said Ben Wood, Senior Support Specialist, Nonemore.

“Without LucidLink, we would have had to rely on separate drives, Dropbox and Synology, and keeping track of where the data was stored would have been very hard. Using LucidLink, everyone had access to the same file at the same time, and the collaboration process was seamless while I had peace of mind that the files were secure and in one place.”

LucidLink’s technology was employed on Hulu/Disney Plus drama The Bear, which was entirely edited by remote teams using LucidLink and Adobe Productions in Premiere Pro. The editors and assistant editors all worked remotely together using LucidLink without ever meeting in person.

LucidLink has also been used on films Devotion and Missing.
