Data from the shoot location to the edit suite, and with every transfer you run the risk of losing data, especially in the mad dash to prepare a camera card for reuse. That’s why it’s so important to have simple backups with known data integrity at every stage of the process and for every post department involved. Producer/editor and Elton John crew member Chris Sobchack knows this scenario well.
For him, having guaranteed, checksum-verified data backups is a non-negotiable part of the job. Sobchack uses ShotPut Pro, Imagine Products’ offloading application, while working on tour with Elton John and on personal projects at Wraptastic Productions, the production house he co-owns with his wife, Nicole.
