Supply-Chain Network for Film & TV Production Houses
- Navigate Film & TV Supply-Chains With Ease.
- Study Preferred Partners and Vendors of Major Studios and Production Houses.
- Find Specialist Vendors and Suppliers Internationally.
Entertainment supply-chains are incredibly complex and fragmented! Don’t believe me…? Close your eyes for a moment and think of all the movie and television credits that roll as the show ends. Those 8-10 minutes of credits have just a partial list of companies – Camera Rentals, Music Soundtrack, VFX, ADR, Colorists, Post Production, Line Production, Drone Filming, Special Effects, Virtual Production, Animation Services, yada, yada, yada. And then there are a host of other companies that don’t even make it to the credit-roll.
Pain-point: Finding Credible, Specialist Vendor Partners… Specifically Internationally
The complexity and fragmentation of the supply chain in the Film and Television industry globally creates a problem for the buy-side in the industry. Leaders in Procurement, Sourcing, Production, Post, Localization and Content Acquisition – all have the same problem of locating the most qualified, specialized, trusted, able, high-capacity and high-availability vendors. Away from tribal-knowledge as well as inaccurate or outdated vendor tracking spreadsheets, the M&E sector needs a dynamic, updated system for vendor-partner selections.
Vitrina AI has been addressing these challenges with the design of a host of signals that reflect vendor characteristics, size, strengths and specializations. One of the core indicators of a strong and established vendor is the client roster along with past and present projects delivered into that clientele.
Let’s take an example… If you were to compare two VFX companies – say company ABCD that is consistently being selected by Marvel Studios for Marvel’s last 10 movies. Versus the other VFX company – PQRS that works with a new client on a single project but does not get picked for the next projects. That is a powerful signal! It demonstrates strength of relationships, consistency of selections and most importantly, it shows that ABCD is a “Preferred Partner” of Marvel Studios.
