How to collaboratively post-produce and distribute digital content?
More often than not, international collaboration is required for the production of audiovisual works. In the world of film the exchange of hardware and the relocation of people is common place. Today distributed post-production processes and working online from remote locations on shared audiovisual content is about to become the norm and is affecting the working methods of post production. The newest techniques of distribution of digital and audiovisual content are now used for multimillion dollar special effects in the studios as well as for some cutting edge audiovisual experiments.
