Webinar for Film Industry Professionals

Join our 40-minute Webinar for Production Companies/Film Industry professionals.

Dean Kruger, Daminion expert

Host: Dean Kruger, Head of the Research Department, Gatehouse Commercials and Juice Film.

Hayley Bond Agnew, Amazing Spaces

Guest speaker: Hayley Bond Agnew, GM & Snr. Location Specialist of Amazing Spaces – the largest location specialist company in South Africa.

The theme of the Webinar is how to increase your chances of closing customers in such a competitive industry as film production by being able to put on presentations of location images and sample casts in a matter of minutes.

When you get a call from a prospective customer, you can be sure he also called your competitors. So, it’s essential for you to persuade him that your company can provide all the services he needs faster than anyone else.

This can be done by organizing your media library so that all the photos, videos and information you need is easy to find, to preview, and to share with your prospective client.

When searching takes seconds and all the shooting rates for a particular location are linked to the image, it takes seconds to issue quotations. As a result, your company comes across as a reliable partner to work with.

This workflow will be demonstrated in detail using Daminion – the most affordable Digital Asset Management software on the market today.
