Where We Started
Global Mechanic Media has a high throughput of media files that serve both sales and production purposes. We were tasked with creating a better way to manage and organize content for both needs.
What We Did
Our research found several pain points in the existing process: uploading and transfer of assets, adding metadata, and managing the sharing of work between team members. We designed and built a suite of three integrated products that not only managed the media files, but also the workflow of the production process:
Reel Builder, for sales staff to build and share work samples from a database of over 700 clips.
Asset Manager, for production teams to manage media files and coordinate workflow between animators both on and off-site.
Work In Progress, to create media pages on the fly for presenting and discussing in-progress projects with clients.
The new tool suite has earned its place as a critical component of GMM’s sales, animation, and client-relationship workflow. Working under high-pressure deadlines across a team of 40+ people, GMM was able to deliver a year-long project on time with the help of the integrated custom applications we built for them.
