CatDV Success in Production Management Part 2


Mama Mirabelle – King Rollo Films

National Geographic, King Rollo Films and the BBC produced 52 x 11mins children’s series called Mama Mirabelle’s Home Movies which combined animation and natural history footage.

After researching various solutions we gave CatDV a try out. We quickly established a workflow whereby we can carry all metadata associated with each clip all the way through the production process from logging until final delivery report (in the form of an Excel document).

We have built up our own library of footage here so we can instantly locate a clip based on log notes and import that clip into Final cut with one keystroke. The integration with Final Cut is excellent and with the use of XML we can keep track of our assets and cope with royalties and copyright issues.

I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending CatDV to anyone who needs a robust video cataloguing solution.”
