On a blockbuster film set or major television project, every second means hundreds or even thousands of dollars expended. Directors and producers manage extremely complex and technical visual tapestries, woven by a team of hundreds. Combine this complexity with multiple units across the world and strict union rules, and the need for rapid & decisive direction is clear.
Photon is uniquely suited to ensuring that dailies get to decision makers as fast and as intuitively as possible. For example, a unit director on-location can transmit, in real time, digital film output simultaneously to a producer and a main-unit director back in Hollywood, and they can communicate their thoughts on the developing film back to the location just as fast. The result? Less time spent waiting, better and faster decision cycles, increased profitability and schedule adherence, and ultimately, a better film.
