What Drives UsOur mission

While the production complexity increased and the deadlines tightened, the need for efficient teamwork became stronger. The amount of data to manage made it harder to deliver qualitative movies and, kept people late at night. That's why we decided to put an end to this. We wake up every morning with one goal: allow you to deliver high-end pictures while keeping it fun.

To achieve this, we rethought how communication happens inside and outside the studio. For the inside, we turned the production tracker into a collaborative platform. Through it, all the stakeholders share information in real time and get more autonomous. For the outside, we have allowed talents from different studios to meet and grow their skills together.

Through our solutions, artists have better interactions with other teams and focus on pictures. They grow their skills along their career and reach new levels. Studios, on their side, scale seamlessly. They can unleash their potential and fulfill their ambitions.

Together we are all winners.
