A team of 20 creators from Japan and abroad participated in the production of the tourism video project “Diamond Route Japan - Fukushima, Tochigi, Ibaraki” released in February 2017. The project features five video segments: “Health & Lifestyle,” “Nature,” “Outdoor,” “History” and “Digest.”
For projects that bring together work from multinational staff, managing the footage was challenging. Previously, XPJP used file transfer and file sharing services to pass files between staff members, but struggled with the time that it took to upload and download footage. To improve its workflow, the company decided to deploy Adobe Creative Cloud for teams.
“For these videos, we filmed and edited approximately 10,000 shots in 70 days,” says Mr Watanabe. “We accomplished this task by using Adobe Creative Cloud Libraries, which simplified file management. We shortened the time needed to share files by half compared to previous projects.”
Normally, it would be a struggle to produce two video segments in 70 days. According to XPJP, the improved efficiency around file sharing helped to dramatically improve the overall creative workflow to the point that the company not only finished the five video segments, but it also finished an additional four video segments for a separate project.
