Ottawa’s Digi60 2012 Digital Filmmakers Festival Finds a Winner with Signiant Media Shuttle™

“The countdown clock to the deadline is merciless. For previous festivals, we relied on free file sharing sites, such as YouSendIt and WeTransfer, for digital film submissions. With finished file sizes exceeding 2GB, our filmmakers often experienced long upload times – up to three hours – and if transfers were interrupted for any reason, time was lost and they simply had to start all over again,” said Festival President Kevin Burton. “With 60 days to make their films, every hour – every minute – counts. The speed, ease of use and reliability of Media Shuttle lets users focus more on the creative process and less on the technical aspects of getting their submissions in before the clock runs out.”
