Dropbox and the media industry

Work Culture

How Dropbox helps the media industry collaborate effectively


Published on September 22, 2014

Working together has never been so complex. Not only are there massive amounts of data to manage and share, but teams often need to work across devices, apps, and even time zones. The media industry embodies this trend, with geographically distributed employees and freelancers trying to collaborate closely on tight timelines. In an industry that’s known for evolving at a breakneck pace, leveraging the latest collaboration technology is a must. One tool in particular has proven to be a huge asset for media professionals and companies alike. In our upcoming Droptalk, we’ll focus on how the media industry is using Dropbox to connect, collaborate, and improve the way teams and freelancers work together. Join us as we talk with three media professionals — Valiant Entertainment CFO and Head of Strategic Development Gavin Cuneo, Valiant Entertainment Senior Editor Alejandro Arbona, and freelance video producer Ryan Hammer — about how Dropbox has given them a leg up when it comes to their creative processes. We’ll cover:

  • The benefits of using sync to collaborate on video, music, and book production
  • How to share high-res files between employees and freelancers, and keep remote staff productive
  • Considerations for making Dropbox the file storage and collaboration backbone for your business

We’ll also hold a live Q&A session to talk about your specific use cases. Register here to join us on Thursday, October 2, 2014 at 11am PT (2pm ET).
