Challenge: A production company had been a long-time Three18 client, dating back to 2006. In August of 2013, our client needed to ramp up a new production facility to accommodate a new style of production in conjunction with YouTube Labs and Dreamworks. They turned to 318, Inc. to help build an office and production facility to support an as-yet unnamed daily clip show developed expressly for the YouTube platform. The timeline was short, from initial meetings in August, our client needed a functioning facility by October.
Solution: Three18 partnered with the production company operations team to design and build out the space and systems for their new office. Three18 presented them with three options for their office implementation, focusing on different video production strategies. Three18 sourced hardware and software to build the basic office environment and built critical services, including email in the cloud, file sharing, network domain administration, and business-class wireless. Three18 also consulted on office connectivity and wiring. Starting in August with nothing more than plans, we helped our client build an entire office from a blank space in less than 2 months–a nimble result for a nimble new type of internet video production.
