Hollywood Comes To Video Surveillance

Dailies. B-Rolls. Circle-Takes. These digital video oriented processes of the “Hollywood” production marketplace have –for nearly a decade now– seen an explosion in the volume of recorded video that must be stored and managed. Entirely new workflows have been created to handle the deluge of video that digital movie-set cameras have unleashed. In the old days parts of movies, TV shows, and commercials would end up on the “cutting room floor” as sections of film were edited out of the production. Nowadays, every “take” is kept and possibly re-used in the bloopers edition or the director’s cut release.
