frame io logoA week ago we were introduced to a brand new collaborative video workflow platform called Frame.io that aims to “pick up where Vimeo left off.” While Vimeo has some client review features, and there are a number of companies out there that offer similar services, Frame.io is attempting to be more seamless, faster, and eliminate headaches that are often associated with the process. There was a huge response to Frame.io, and many, many questions. Co-founder Emery Wells will be sending out a newsletter answering these questions, but they’ve given No Film School an early look at the text that will be going out later today. More »

frame io logoCollaboration is a major part of filmmaking, but sometimes it seems as though technology hasn’t quite caught up with our increasingly mobile and online workflows. That’s why Frame.io is so exciting. This collaboration platform aims to “pick up where Vimeo left off” by allowing users to upload, review, and share videos privately with collaborators anywhere in the world with a single application. And once you check out the workflow, you’ll wonder how you ever did without it. More »

google drive cloud storage syncing file sharing service desktop mobile appUntil recently, Google Drive didn’t necessarily have more going for it than similar services like Dropbox. Tight integration with Gmail makes permissions management a breeze, and the real-time collaboration abilities offered by Google Docs is arguably revolutionary. Drive’s desktop syncing app has always felt a little tacked-on, though, whereas Dropbox’s version has felt truly native since day one. In any case, Google recently made what may be the most convincing point of argument yet to use their cloud app by expanding its storage pricing system exponentially. In other words, the $10 I used to pay monthly for 200 GB now gets me 1 TB. In what TechCrunch calls cloud “storage wars,” that kind of upgrade is a pretty big deal. But as filmmakers, why do we care?

Maybe all of you Vine users noticed an alert on your respective mobile devices, but for those of you who haven’t (or don’t have the app yet), Vine released an update that allows you to embed your videos on the web. Before the update, users were only given the option to share their videos on Twitter and Facebook, but now you can post your videos virtually anywhere, which can only mean that we’ll be seeing a lot more of Vine in the near future.

I wasn’t really expecting to have to refer to the theoretical ‘Instagram of Video’ for another while — major choices for mobile users are already in place and ‘in the running’ for such a title, and it could be a while before everyone in the discussion unanimously declares one app the victor (if ever). The Verge (seemingly in a nod to comments) acknowledged YouTube as the elephant in the room for these apps, because even on iOS where the YouTube app is read-only (well, watch-only — no uploads), the service is the megalith for easily-socialized video. A complete YouTube experience is already native on Android (again, YouTube is Google is Android), perhaps to the chagrin of recent Android-joiner Viddy. A new development may totally shift the dynamics of this interplay, however: Google just yesterday released YouTube Capture for iOS. More »

Where is the supposed ‘Instagram of Video?’ Is it even possible for a motion-based media/social service to be as lightweight, sharable, and just plain easy as Instagram makes stills? The jury is still out, the verdict on which of the contenders will stick — if any at all — is still to be determined. We covered a bit on some of the startups stepping into the ring already, and since then, some other relevant material has surfaced. In one corner, heavyweight Viddy (one of the favorite bets) has just released an Android version of its service for many smartphones, while in the other, small independent startup Lumify wants to make “filmmaking for everyone” and attempts to answer “Why our mobile videos suck.” More »

The NoFilmSchool newsletter includes a lot of exclusive content that doesn’t appear on this site; this post is a sample of one such email that used to go out. In it, we’ll look at why you should use a video sharing service, and which services might work best for you. I mistakenly removed this email from the list thinking it was causing folks to unsubscribe, but it turns out I was reading the analytics wrong (and I can’t reinstitute the email without sending it a second time). So here’s a sample of the newsletter — subscribe free for more exclusive content! More »
