“Being a producer, I’m always looking for better ways to centralize information associated with a project and then share that information with all the stakeholders,” said David Cress, Executive Producer for Gus Van Sant’s latest Untitled Film. “Pod27 is an amazing resource that allows us to create a virtual workspace where all team members can access vital production information and share data associated with the project. It saves us money and enables us to be more efficient.”
“Pod27 was designed to streamline the filmmaking process from the production side and eliminate the patchwork approach that exists in the industry today. Until now, no one has made a cost-effective, hosted collaboration engine for film that gives users the tools they need to more better communicate and share information instantly,” said Tyler Peterson, President and Founder of Pod27. “Our latest customer experienced a 15 percent reduction in time and cost on his project, which he attributed to Pod27.”
Pod27 is completely Web-based and optimized for both Mac and PC users from anywhere in the world. The company is helping to redefine digital workflow for film crews and filmmakers by delivering a secure, centralized Web application for users to share and organize information, such as location photos and videos, maps, casting details, dailies, production documents, legal contracts and more.

I recently saw a demo of Pod27 and was amazed to see someone finally hit the mark on consolidating a secure, mobile platform that enables collaboration. Being in the media and technology business for over twenty years I was pleased to see the implementation of a high quality streaming video solution that accurately targets the end users connection speed. The quality was very impressive and consistent.
I can only imagine the cost savings associated with the use of this site. No more shipping costs or time delays.
I think this is also great for folks who are addicted to mobile devices (like me).
I’ve seen a demo as well and was impressed. Producers need to check this out for their next project.
