I work out of a small, multi-seat, creative prod/post shop as the de facto senior editor/colorist. We haven't had clients drop in to supervise sessions for at least 4 years or more. With the exception of occasional grading review sessions for small indie films, review-and-approval and even distribution has largely been online, mainly through Frame. On-prem reviews are just our own team's director and producers.

The facility has about 3/4 PB of NAS storage and a lot of ongoing b-roll footage that we tap into on every project. This means that working from home is only possible on a small handful of jobs.

The huge downside is that our biggest client is a technology/entertainment development unit within a cruise company. Needless to say, everything we were working on is on pause or being slow-rolled for now. It's only the editors who are going into the office if there are any projects to finish up or provide deliverables for. Office and support staff are working from home. So only 1 or 2 of us in the office at any given time these days. 1 editor working on a doc project for an indie film client at home.

We had several international productions on tap, but those have been postponed. So for now, we are all just crossing our fingers that the medical/governmental efforts work and this slowdown is only temporary.
