Mobile Computing Case Studies - Film Production

Paramount Motion Picture Provides Most Current Schedule and Crew Assignments to Staff Using Virtual Production Office (VPO) From Filmport

Organization Using Mobile Technology for Fim Production: Paramount Motion Pictures
Production Unit Within Paramount: Crocodile Dundee In Los Angeles

The Business Need:
The production of "Crocodile Dundee In Los Angeles" involved collaboration with Film crews in diverse locations within California and Australia. The ability to communicate and update the crew in real-time was a priority. Paramount Pictures is part of the entertainment operations of Viacom Inc., one of the world's largest entertainment and media companies, and a leader in the production, promotion, and distribution of entertainment, news, sports, and music.

The Solution:
Using email, the Internet, and mobile messaging devices, Filmport kept the whole crew connected, sharing all important information from the script to the schedule. Filmport fostered better communication and accountability while dramatically reducing paperwork, copies, overnight delivery charges and redundant data entry. 

The Outcome:
The people behind the movie Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles, directed by Simon Wincer and starring Paul Hogan, shed light on the outcome:

"We used it on (Paramount's) Crocodile Dundee 3 and it was really cool." says Rosemary Marks, a Los Angeles-based Production Coordinator. "Even if the crew were out of reach, it was still easy to change their call times, and to continually update important info. And with the schedule right there, you don't have to call everyone if you need to make changes; they just check what you've done." 

Filmport VPO proved especially useful on Dundee since the production spread across two distant locations. 

"I was in Los Angeles, and the producers were travelling back and forth to our production offices in Australia," Marks says. "When they were on the other side of the world, you could put info in and have them access it immediately."
