Here’s how it works:
Reviewing – The client gets an email with your studio’s branding and a link to access the playlist, which they can view from their desktop or mobile device. They see a simple layout and can comment with notes or even draw directly on the frames.
Automatic Notes Integration – You’re notified as soon as the client makes a comment. Client notes and annotated frames come right back into Shotgun automatically, linked and addressed to the right people, with permission options in place for who can see them so feedback can be clarified before it hits the production floor. There’s no need to import notes from multiple spreadsheets or email ever again!
“Shotgun with Client Review is the best of both worlds -- we have exactly what we want with shot tracking and exactly what we want with client review,” said VFX Producer Mike Gaines, who beta tested the Shotgun Client Review site in production on episodic TV shows. “Having both in the same workflow so that the client can give us a note and it’s automatically in the Shotgun database is the perfect synergy of those two things. Clients are loving it too. Before we were emailing links to download files back and forth and some people couldn’t play files and it was a big mess, then tracking notes and approvals in addition to that was mind-numbing. This has been a godsend for us; a one-stop-shop for all of our tracking needs and client review needs, all talking to each other.”
Thanks to Mike and all of the studios who collaborated with us to beta test the Client Review site in production -- your feedback has been invaluable!
We look forward to hearing about your experience. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
