We shoot footage for internal use and some B-Roll for our businesses to use. We are shooting footage on the RED and have a small production team. The challenge we're facing is the fact we've never designed the right workflow, and have been working out of a folder structure using Premiere and After Effects.
No consistent metadata tagging
Can't find assets
If we want to find footage, we have to ask somebody who knows where it is (and some don't work here anymore)
Working with 8K RAW RED footage is taxing on the hardware
No easy way to collaborate and get feedback on shots and cuts
We've been told we need a MAM system to manage the tagging, ingestion and moving the data. What do you guys suggest? It seems like MAM systems are the "old school" way of dealing with footage and seem out-of-date.
How do the best solve the same issues we're facing? There has to be a better way to manage Storage, Catalogs and Search.
