Why is media management SO important? Can’t the intern just do it? What if we just skip this part?
In any aspect of post (editing, graphics, sound, colour) 90% of the success of your workflow depends on how you organise your data. This stretches far beyond labelling a hard drive correctly! Oh boy, proper media management can save you time, money, and tons of frustration. Invest in a professional data wrangler to take responsibility for your assets- even if it is just on a freelance basis.
In my next post on data management I will reflect on my experiences with systems that work really well. I will also tell you about the pitfalls of getting it wrong.
Tell me about your workflow?
