Great Guns is an international film and commercial production company.
As well as building and hosting the website, we created a collaborative hub system that not only allows management of the website content, video, reels and news but also allows user to build their own custom video showreels (with a simple drag and drop interface) to use to pitch for new projects or as marketing tools. This is integrated into an email system that tracks the emailed reels and reports on which videos were viewed by the recipients. Linked to this is a contact database and shared calendar.
The hub converts media automatically into different formats and can create dvd images if hard copies of reels are required. Other features include document storage and custom ftp account administration.
All of these features are brandable to Great Guns' different international offices, locations and sub-brands.
Tagmin is a comprehensive software solution for theatrical agents.
The system we created enables agents to manage all aspects of their business online, including clients and their media (clients can also log in and update their own details), contacts, submissions for jobs (integrated with the Spotlight casting system) and the subsequent meetings, recalls, pencils, offers and the jobs themselves. The financial side is also covered with invoicing and payments (integrated with major banks) as well as extensive search options and reports to keep track of the various features, both financial and operational.
There is also an email system (with tracking) and calendar that can sync to mobile devices. Finally, tasks and reminders can be set on a personal or office-wide level.
We set up Tagmin hosting on multiple redundant mirrors to minimise disruption to the service.
