39 S P R I N G Q 1 I S S U E T E C H By Jennifer Walden R emote workflow solutions have dominated tech discussions for the past year. At f i r s t , t h e q u e s t i o n w a s : w h a t works? But as COVID lockdowns have persisted, the question changed to: what works best? When CineMontage reached out to industry pros to talk about the es- sential tech of 2020, it was not surprising that the majority offered up tried-and- true, long-term solutions that make working remotely not just manageable but sustainable. Here, editor Myra Lopez and sound designer/mixer Konrad PiƱon talk about the benefits of Evercast from picture and sound perspectives, Avid editor George Brown III discusses Teradici's r e m o t e d e s k t o p t e c h n o l o g y, A D R mixer Tami Treadwell praises ADR... At A DIstance, the remote ADR system from WB Sound, finishing editor/col- orist Christopher Doyle highlights his favorite aspects of Autodesk's Flame 2020, and re-recording mixer/compos- er Michael Phillips Keeley touts the benefits of updating to the Dolby Atmos Renderer v3.5. Evercast for Picture Editors Lopez, based in Los Angeles, is cur- rently working on an original animated mini-series for Netflix Animation Stu- dios. Her responsibilities include editing animatics and overseeing the editorial team through completion of the project. O n e e s s e n t i a l t e c h s o l u t i o n f o r Lopez is Evercast (, a real-time, web-based remote collab- oration platform that combines video conferencing, HD live-streaming, and full-spectrum audio all in one. Evercast connects to industry standard NLEs (Non-Linear Editing systems) and DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations), like Adobe Premiere and Avid Pro Tools, respective- ly, making it possible for the creative team to instantly review edits and mixes. "Evercast enables me to stream my various timelines to my director and make edit changes in real-time. With Evercast, I have been able to continue to work through this pandemic and review material when needed, almost like being in my edit bay," Lopez told CineMontage. When the pandemic hit, Lopez and the production team were wrapping up the final animatic and beginning post-pro- duction on the show. Despite the switch to working from home, they were still able to remain on schedule. Lopez said, "Evercast allowed us to meet virtually through the post-production process to address any further editorial needs." One of her favorite features is Ever- cast's video conferencing, which acts like a virtual conference room. Up to 20 team members can virtually attend a live Evercast session to discuss notes HERE ARE THE ESSENTIAL TOOLS MEMBERS RELY ON FOR REMOTE WORK Heroes of the Lockdown Evercast Editorial.
