The Global Workforce
My best voiceover actress works in Vancouver. To simply call her talented is like calling the New York subway line at rush hour, just a bit busy.
Our Animator has her studio in the middle-east, she also has 5 kids, two of which are twins. I wouldn’t call her the least patient person on the planet, but she certainly comes close. She demands to know project expectations quickly and needs to have all edits and revisions delivered exactly on point, every time.
I have a video editor in Denmark. He’s an idiot, albeit a very skilful idiot who gets the job done right, eventually. He’s great with After Effects but when it comes to communication...well let’s just say I’ve whispered a few too many obscenities at the 3rd, 4th, or even 5th email that I’ve had to send to communicate a change. Of course this was before we found a better solution.
Aside from the creative juggling I need to perform to keep everyone in order, I wouldn’t trade my team for the world. There are many advantages to bringing a global community of trusted professionals together on a video project, especially when you know how to manage it right.
So stick around, we’re going to show you exactly what to watch out for when managing remote teams for video production.
In this guide we’ll highlight:
- Short term and long term key symptoms of poor remote management
- How they can derail your production times and create major productivity blocks
- The best solutions to patch current issues
- And the best solutions to avoid these issues altogether!
