Platform Powers Media Storage for Documentary Productions

by ProMAX Administrator, on Apr 9, 2015 6:35:23 AM

Kartemquin Films has been Chicago’s, internationally recognized documentary powerhouse for over 48 years. Hillary Bachelder; Post Production Manager at Kartemquin, had been looking for a better video storage plan, and a better way to manage their media. Bachelder faced two key workflow challenges that are characteristic of documentary productions; many span long amounts of time (sometimes as long as 10 years) with source footage coming from a wide array of media formats.

As Post Production Supervisor for Hard Earned, a 6 hour, episodic documentary series for Al Jazeera America, she says, “We have a crazy amount of footage on this project; over 250 hours of footage, totaling to over 12 TB of media.” The ProMAX Platform Studio perfectly suited the production’s shared storage needs. Kartemquin’s Studio server, with a 32TB SHARE module, is currently supporting four Mac-based, Avid Media Composer workstations assigned to the production. Two of the workstations are assigned to the film’s co-editors and the other two workstations are designated to support ongoing media management.
