The fast pace and deadline-driven world of video editing for a major network television program like Scrubs is especially demanding for the editors who turn out 22 episodes per season. The team at DigitalFilm Tree (DFT), however is doing just that, working with one-week turnaround deadlines and producing an average of 26 visual effects per episode.
Functioning under these extreme environments, DFT turned to the enterprise-class reliability and 750GB storage capacity that Seagate Barracuda ES hard drives deliver. Now, with multiple terabytes of storage at their fingertips, DFT designers have the power to create, edit and store their work directly on workstations using all the latest high-powered 3-D rendering, visual effects and film-editing software.
"Seagate Barracuda ES hard drives enable our creative team to enjoy the flexibility and power to work on digital intermediate files both on and off the network," said Ramy Katrib, president and CEO. "With 1.5TB of storage on each workstation, our team can work more efficiently and not worry about network delays and bandwidth issues."
Based in Hollywood, California, DigitalFilm Tree's professional video and film services range from workflow design and post services, to visual effects design and graphics. DigitalFilm Tree's major film credits include Napoleon Dynamite, Cold Mountain, and Crank in addition to the company's work on the acclaimed television show, Scrubs.
