North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, 2007/04/12 - VisionNet Solutions creates an online one-stop-shop for filmmakers around the world making it easier to find locations and film data with just a click of a mouse.
At the AFCI Locations Trade Show 2007 taking place in the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, now until April 14th, VisionNet Solutions, Inc. can be found at Booth 310/312 presenting the best tool ever offered to film location professionals; free access to an incredible global database of potential filming locations, searchable from anywhere in the world. Location Managers can now store, organize and share digital photographs with producers searching for the perfect location or with film commissions seeking to attract movie productions to their region.
Every accredited Location Manager can now enjoy their own private digital photograph library securely and at no cost. Each library, able to store up to 100,000 digital photographs, can be shared instantly with other film professionals, can be used as back up for their photographs that are stored on cameras or computers and can be made publicly available to film commissions as a method of self-promotion.
Information sharing tools are incorporated into VisionNet Solutions to help film commissions attract film business to their region and movie producers to pitch their projects and manage their existing film productions more efficiently.
"For the studios, this free-to-use global locations database is a tool of enormous potential when they are scouring the world for a particular requirement.” explains Michael Gazetas, President of VisionNet Soluntions. “It’s all about being able to help the film-making process work most effectively and efficiently,"
Film Commissions across North America are seeing the value of VisionNet and the opportunities to provide faster access to information that will help to bring more productions into their region which in turn will help bring in more jobs.
“Manitoba Film & Sound has established itself as a leader in the film commission community and recognizes VisionNet’s innovative concept and application.” says Louise O’Brien-Moran, Manager of Film Production, Manitoba Film & Sound. “The VisionNet demonstration galvanized our location department allowing us to provide lightening-fast responses to creative changes...it’s exhilarating. The signature attraction of VisionNet is its industry savvy.”
“In the Internet age content is king.” adds John Roberts, Vice President, VisionNet, “Location managers who contribute to our global library have the opportunity to advertise themselves and the hard-to-find locations that they know”.
