Dear Friends,

Like you, we have found ourselves in a new age of innovation and urgency to solve for our industry’s greatest challenges. We’re hyper aware of the role we play in the larger scope of responsibility – to our immediate community, as well as those we serve at home, watching the shows we help bring to life.

DigitalFilm Tree (DFT) has long prioritized the needs of creatives around the world and aimed to democratize both the information and the technology that will power forward progress for the storyteller. Because of that goal, we have served remote needs for the better part of a decade, with both security and collaborative efficiency at the heart of our remote services.

To that end, we are ready - Our immediate actions, in light of the COVID-19 “Safer at Home” measures and the health of our people, were to solve for the complex needs of our in-house artists, knowing that if we got that right, we could offer sound and stable solutions to our community. Our only goal is to help our friends – you – to keep working, and to work safely, wherever you may be. That applies to the security of your health as well as your media.

While some shows have gone on hiatus, others have moved their teams into individual homes, relying on physical drives to be shuttled between creatives, and slow home internet connections, full of potential security blind spots. We are painfully aware of both the bottlenecks and vulnerabilities of this workflow, which emboldened us to iterate on grander scale solutions with more determination than ever before.

As an essential service provider, DFT remains open for physical needs with a smaller crew of less than 10 people in the building at any given time, adhering to all safety, sanitizing and distancing recommendations made by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the City of Los Angeles. The rest of our team is now operating from home to continue servicing our clients’ needs.

“What is your greatest pain point” is a question DFT clients have heard often. We’re asking you that now – whether we have worked together before or this is the first time you’ve heard of us, we’re raising our hand to help. Now is not the time to compromise the security of your health, work or your media.

Bring us your challenges, your biggest obstacles to continuing your project or keeping your media secure – and let’s get you back to work.

In This Together,
Ramy Katrib
CEO
DigitalFilm Tree

in-house & remote
DigitalFilm Tree houses exceptional artists, technologists, post producers, and senior consultants at our state-of-the-art facility in Hollywood. Our company fosters creativuty with bleeding edge technology and software, which enables continuous collaboration and file sharing throughout the post process.

We deploy cloud connected remote dailies, color, VFX, and editorial post systems the world over.

We give your collaborative team accelerated access to dailies and media transfers by putting the power of a post house in your hands, anywhere in the world.
vitrtual production // pre-viz & post-viz
Virtual production was once a tool available only to multi million dollar productions. By lowering the cost of pre-visualization and virtual production, we democratize and empower creators, writers and directors to craft their narrative with our proprietary, accessible story engine, driven by game engine technologies. Testing scenes and script ideas with more detail than the written page allows story tellers to define and refine their ideas in real time. We leverage game engine technology with a filmmaker friendly interface, bringing real life cameras, lighting, locations, environments, costumes and more into a living, breathing and immediately editable storyboard environment. This process not only brings your team of artists - director, cinematographer, editor, costumer, VFX, etc. - together faster, but saves you money, time and lost time. Plan better shots, block in detail, adjust for weather, loss of light - know you're prepared. Need photo realistic solutions for your final cut? We do that, too.
