Congratulations to Ben S Hyland, winnner of LaCie’s PushPlay competition. As well as getting a slew of state of the art production kit (including computer, camera equipment and a drone, all supplied by Jigsaw24), Ben also got to a two day mentoring session with Oscar-winning cinematographer Michael Paleodimas, which included backstage access to Glass Works and Panavision.
The LaCie kit you spotted was a selection of LaCie Rugged mobile drives and a 12Big desktop RAID. LaCie Rugged drives are dust proof, crush proof, water resistant and seemingly childproof, which has made them a popular choice for onset media storage. The high speed and capacity of the 6Big and 12Big RAID towers, combined with their ability to offer protection from RAID0 up to RAID6 depending on your level of paranoia, has made them a popular choice for filmmakers. They’ve recently become available with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, enabling even faster data transfer.
The Jigsaw24 office on show was our Soho premises, which is also the home of our Resolve-equipped demo room, should anyone have any follow up questions about the grading portion of the video.
