“It feels like we’ve moved from the Primitive Ages to this Century! Platform made shared storage way easier; and we don’t need an IT department to manage it.”

As a full-service transmedia development and production company, Span Productions creates far-reaching productions with high impact. The degree of difficulty rises with the fact that Span usually produces several of these uniquely inspired projects at the same time. For their feature length documentary, “The Hooping Life” Span Productions was using a couple of different work stations, and using different sets of hard drives to cover the media assets of several other productions that they were simultaneously creating.
“The Hooping Life” had media coming in from a full range of sources. According to Span Director, Amy Goldstein, “It was a maddening process.” ProMAX’s Platform with Share Module, with 32TB of storage changed all that. Goldstein and Span Producer, Anouchka van Riel, say that when they added ProMAX Platform’s shared storage to their workflow, the change was dramatic. “We wish we had made the move sooner,” confides Goldstein, adding, “It made such a huge difference.”
