Cloud Edits Takes The Risk Out Of Remote Editing

News Image
Cloud working is on the rise and production companies are increasingly turning to editors who work remotely for many reasons.

It makes sense to work this way with the technology that is available, they can choose from a wide range of editors, it's easy to book and they save money. However, it's not that easy for production companies to set this up themselves. They often like the idea, but are not confident with the workflow or with choosing an editor who they can trust working away from the office.

Cloud Edits provides editors who work remotely. On the roster, a range of editors cover social media, promos, factual entertainment, documentary and news. All of their editors are referenced checked and are chosen for their skill and ability to work independently. The company will also liaise with tech departments to set up and test the best workflow between them on the editor.

Because of this, Cloud Edits has become a company that is trusted to provide a dependable remote editing service. Working in tandem with in house edits, clients have included CBBC and Arrow Media. Working on Arrow's new series Don't Tell the Doctor for 5Star, a bespoke system was set up utilising Arrow's existing technology including Aframe and Media Shuttle as well as the Cloud Edits upload facility for views and reviews.

The head of popular factual at Arrow, Oliver Wright said: "It worked really well handing material over and then being sent cuts."

Scheduled in for six weeks initially, Arrow found the service was invaluable in staying on schedule and after the initial contract had ended, continued to use Cloud Edits right into the last week of offline. "In a multi stranded show it helped not only to have Caroline help mould Ep 1 – which I knew she would do really well – but also to throw her stories for other shows when we were up against it."

The service proved cost effective, saving the production money, however, there was one thing that Oliver would do differently next time: "I would schedule Caroline to do more."

Cloud Edits are currently collaborating with Alter Eco, making online films for charities such as Greenpeace; and Mad Women, producing branded content for large companies.

Communication is key to this service. Cloud Edits are working on expanding their client base and are continually moving with technology in communications and workflow, to provide a dependable cloud based post-production service.
