The team at the sound design and music composition studio, Bang Bang Studios, tried out Digital Pigeon over three years ago after a high-profile large file sharing service repeatedly let them down.
“We were tired of dealing with failed uploads and having to rely on other ways to get work to clients by the deadline.” said Holli.
Bang Bang partners with some of Australia’s largest advertising agencies, producing work for many very well-known brands. File delivery isn’t a nice-to-have… it’s a must-have.
Three years on, they’ve never looked back.
“Honestly, we take Digital Pigeon for granted...”
The team of six, based in Melbourne, Australia, produce sound design and original music for short and long form productions - with a large majority of their work featuring in TVCs and radio commercials.
Holli explained that for their TVC projects, the music and sound are often the last piece of work to complete the project.
“We’re usually racing against the clock when we’re using using Digital Pigeon because our partners have deadlines to meet. Honestly, we take Digital Pigeon for granted because it just works. And that’s what we need… something that is reliable”.
Managing high volumes of files
Digital Pigeon is known for being able to handle massive file sizes and sending them quickly over long distances. But for Bang Bang, a lot of their clients are National and their typical file size is about 2-10 MB. So how is Digital Pigeon helpful?
“Just in one day, we would send several people in a number of agencies, multiple versions of files, and often a number of versions and options. With Digital Pigeon, it’s so easy to keep track of who has been sent what and whether or not they have accessed the work”.
“We use it for casting all the time”
Bang Bang Studios often cast voice over artists for advertising agencies. The Bang Bang team can quickly put together a highly curated and relevant group of voice demos and send them via Digital Pigeon with their own Bang Bang branding.
Just part of the workflow now
Bang Bang Studios use Digital Pigeon every day. Just like their recording equipment, microphones and editing software - Digital Pigeon is another tool that helps the team at Bang Bang Studios do their jobs,.
”It’s a bit like using a phone - when we need it, it's there, it works.”
