Long distance transfer of raw footage
on Jan 27, 2011 at 9:01:48 pm

Wondering if there are any options of which I'm not aware for inexpensive transfer of raw footage when working with others out of state? Working with clients, I usually purchase a mini hard drive and ship QuickTime files to the client who reimburses me the shipping & drive costs. I've also had a client ship their drive to me to load and return ship. Though I do have an iDisk account with 10gig capacity, I can only upload an approx. maximum of 500MB without timeouts because of connection speed. And, my workflow is tapeless.

Could there be another low-cost option especially since I have an upcoming no-budget project for a ministry. Footage for these type of projects has always been event or interviews - so the clips are fairly lengthy. The interviews will probably run 15 minutes and need to transfer to me from out of state for editing. I prefer to avoid compressed files if possible though this doesn't seem feasible. I'm editing a 1920x1080 master.

Any innovative methods to suggest?

Maybe

or

or for Windows (only way to not have file size restricted upload)

Most services have 2GB upload per file limit.

I'd say you already have the inexpensive optoin. Considering a 1.5 T usb HD is only about $100 and shipping is not too bad if you're not in a rush, I'd stick to that. You can get physically smaller HD's if you know your file capacity or use bare HDs and get one of the toasters for each end : http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/NewerTech/Voyager/Hard_Drive_Dock
