Who we help
I'm an Agency
We work with advertising agencies of all sizes, both in the UK and in Europe, storing their clients digital film data and assets.
We upload, check, verify, log, and produce an online viewable database, so you know exactly what assets you have stored.
We back-up the data to two copies of dual located LTO with retrieval in one day when you need it.
Our price point is the most cost effective on the market and charged by the terabyte so you only pay for the space you use. Some agencies recharge our costs to their clients as a small percentage on each job.
Our service is the lowest carbon footprint of any archiving service with the highest DPP accredited security.
I'm a Production Company
We work with production companies across broadcast television, advertising, content creation and film production. We help companies to archive and secure multiple copies of their full resolution and uncompressed rushes and masters eliminating the risk of loss of these precious assets; assets that can have huge future monetary value.
By using Film Locker your creative staff are freed from the process of data basing, archiving and securing project media. Freelance staff understand there is a simple single protocol for securing your companies assets at the end of each project. You are also free to move post production suppliers without issue or delay if you need to recut older projects.
Our price point is the most cost effective in the industry, charged by the terabyte (TB) annually or for much longer periods upfront so you can budget the costs more easily while always complying with the exact terms of your contractual agreements.
Your staff, premises or ownership may change, your archive protocols should always remain consistent, rigid and totally secure.
I'm a Brand
All the TV adverts, brand films and content created are the visual heritage of a brand.
The problem is that these assets are often held with various different ad agencies, production companies and creative partners, in all different formats, resolutions and often, only on single copies.
We work with brands to consolidate their entire history into one library, securely backed up and held to best current working protocols. This makes it easy to not only protect the visual heritage, but also if re-versioning or re-cuts are
