OT: EPK and related deliverables
May 14, 2012 01:38PM
Hey there,

I wasn't able to answer this question for a director friend of mine and I thought the hive mind here might have some data to share.

What are people using to distribute EPK's or scene clips for news/entertainment? That is, when I did have some interaction with this part of the industry we got Beta tapes with the trailers and a few scenes on them. How is that stuff being delivered to all the local stations and the different channels these days?
An FTP or some server variant?
A data DVD or DVDs?
USB sticks?

thanks for any suggestions

Sleeplings, AWAKE!

Depends on how large the EPK is but I've been using WeTransfer a lot recently and outside of a service called EVO we use WeTransfer at the BBC for offlines and <2GB clips.

Also use a lot of FTP - with most UK net connections starting at 10mbps and going unto 100mbps soon in the UK its far more efficient to FTP, Dropbox or WeTransfer.

For EPK stuff I just burn in the copyright rather than relying on the channels to do it.
