“Fortunately for us, we had already established a solid internal structure between our two studios for more than a year, and that allowed us to quickly deploy and adapt it so the entire team could now work remotely from home,” says Raymond.
“The challenges of having both studios collaborating on the same projects and the changes that had been imposed forced us to transform all of our daily studio operations to working remotely,” adds Raymond, “and the effectiveness is well beyond our expectations.
Indeed, both studio locations were already working on shots simultaneously, and group conferencing tools had been extensively tested and used. However, the technical side was not the only challenge to overcome. Raymond notes that internal communication between the supervision and coordination teams as well as the artists needed to be tightly structured and very efficient.
“Thanks to our team’s professionalism and dedication we were able to take on the challenge with success. We will therefore be able to maintain this mode of operation as long as required, although returning to the studios and seeing our fellow teammates will be more than appreciated.”
