Easy as Pie - Pie Town Uses Axle AI to Manage Media Remotely
By: axle ai, Inc.
Yet even Pie Town had to adjust when COVID-19 obligated everyone to "shelter in place," forcing the vast majority of its staff to work remotely. Fortunately, they had implemented axle ai software to manage all their media, which comprises 100 terabytes of online/work-
"With axle in place, we can now all look at the same clip, at the same time," explains Dana Besnoy, Pie Town's SVP of Post Production. "Axle has connected us in a way we didn't realize was possible when we all started scampering out of the building at the start of the pandemic."
Pie Town has a very busy schedule, shooting three to five full episodes of House Hunters per week in addition to its local productions. In all, they produce 200-300 episodes of reality and lifestyle programming per year. The raw footage is copied to the NAS at the end of each shoot, and axle ai automatically generates a low-res proxy, which is then available to the entire team. In all, between 40 and 60 Pie Town employees access axle ai on a daily basis.
"This allows all of our departments to access and review media with their needs in mind. Production can review for camera/audio concerns and/or crew feedback. Story can get a head start on their string out. And Post can access clips needed for transcription,"
