“I used Image Approvals during post production of The Nest. I was looking for a streamlined process that would make it as easy and fast as possible for cast to check and kill or approve their stills and that’s exactly what I got. Within 5 days of sending links to cast all the approvals were complete and my total hands-on time was under 2 hours.” ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
-Clare Kerr, Lambert Studios Producer
On the 3rd of the month we received an enquiry from Studio Lambert about managing stills approvals of their recently wrapped show, ‘The Nest,’ airing on BBC One the following month. By the 25th the entire approvals process was complete.
Entire stills process complete within 17 working days from initial enquiry.
The Nest is an independent production with limited time, budget and expertise; their photographer had since left the project which meant they no longer had access to image management software.
They had 699 images across 5 episodes and one day of gallery photography with 6 actors with approvals rights.
Wanting the easiest and quickest solution; Studio Lambert opted for our full-service package.
They supplied their selected stills to us via a secure download link and we got to work tagging cast, resizing images and uploading to the platform.
We then created accounts for each of their actors and suppled Welcome Packs to production to forward on to them. These welcome packs contained the casts’ unique log in information and a quick user guide so that production did not have to field any support requests across this process.
We also supplied one production account and user guide to their producer, Clare Kerr, so that she could oversee cast progress.
Once cast had completed their approvals, production were able to download reports in both contact sheet and spreadsheet format to act as a full audit trail of all kills made.
Monday Feb 3rd: Initial enquiry via our website.
Friday Feb 14th: Paperwork completed and images received.
Monday Feb 17th: All images tagged and uploaded and actor access granted.
Tuesday Feb 25th: Approvals process completed.
