You’re working on a film or television production, and you’re looking for… a simpler way to securely collaborate and distribute documents, stills, scripts, dailies and cuts, making sure people see only what they’re meant to see, from pre-production to wrap, and into the marketplace.
Use DAX—built specifically for production workflow within production companies as well as exchange of materials with external stakeholders from marketing and distribution to film finance, the Bond Company and right out to film festivals and markets, all on time and into the right hands. Automated e-mails and system dashboards notify each subscribed user as dailies, cuts, call sheets, stills, scripts, memos, and other media become available.
Here’s how it works:
Set up a DAX account for your production. With 24/7/365 support and training for each client, once a project is green lit you can have it set up in less than 24 hours.
Pre-Production begins and folders are set up for documents, locations, scripts, pre-visualization, casting and location shots/reels so that the entire production can start on a virtual production workflow platform. From headshots to contracts to managing the distribution of script revisions, each production receives a customized setup with role-based permissions specific to uploading, deleting, watermarking, viewing, downloading and more. All permissions are customized per production and user.
Cameras start rolling and media is uploaded and released via DAX's Digital Dailies® Service to key players like producers, the director, and DP. Editorial can assemble selects and create playlists for creative input and distribution to a wider audience to start their downstream work such as publicity or marketing. DAX provides secure, streaming technology so that each piece of material is private, watermarked and only accessible to the right member of the team.
Beyond dailies and rough assembles or edits, the system distributes secure watermarked elements in native Avid or Final Cut Pro formats to creative agencies and marketing partners. You’ve now slashed the expense of duplication of drives and media, while speeding time of delivery and time to market.
DAX delivers mission-critical materials to the entire team quickly and efficiently. Seamless communications connect the production trailer on location to a producer on a flight, to a post facility in another country, ensuring the same outstanding DAX performance through a desktop internet browser or our iPad app, DAX|Mobile.
DAX is used by all major studios and many independent production companies, including Lionsgate, Summit, Legendary Pictures, CBS Films, NuImage/Millennium and Alcon. Call us today for a demo or to find out what DAX can do for you: 310.895.9550
