In July of 2013, PBS' FRONTLINE followed up its 2011 film, Revolution in Cairo with Egypt in Crisis, reporting on the overthrow of Egypt's democratically elected leader. During that first film in 2011, they struggled to quickly deliver footage captured in Egypt back to Boston, where FRONTLINE'S post-production facility, the OutPost, was located. Chris Fournelle, then Associate Director of Broadcast at FRONTLINE and current Director of Post-Production at WGBH in Boston, sought out a tool to allow their team to work more efficiently and accelerate the production process while working with a global team. They ultimately landed on MediaSilo.

Vimeo Releases High Maintenance and Joins the Fight to Disrupt the Traditional Media Consumption Model
Vimeo reached a new milestone as a platform for publishing video content yesterday as they released their first original programming: three new episodes of High Maintenance, a brilliant web series profiling a handful of characters in Brooklyn, NY.

In the media landscape of today’s world, multimedia as a primary means of communication is simply a reality.” Those are the sentiments expressed by George Lucas in 2006 in connection to the $175 million donation his foundation made to USC Film School. His philanthropy was due in part to USC allowing him to discover his passion for film as well as to endow the USC Institute for Multimedia Literacy which seeks to expand the definition of literacy to include a mastery of moving image and sound as well as text.
