Creative Planet Network interviews Emmy Award-winning producer and director, Aaron Brenner, to find out more about the production tools he uses. If you're looking for workflow tips, he describes how he relies on G-Technology G-DRIVES
for storage solutions, post production workflow and redundancy:

On the night of the shoot, I operated two MacBook Pro computers, each running ShotPut Pro and connected to multiple G-Drive ev RaW drives. The show was shot and recorded on seven Sony NEX-FS700 cameras. I walked away from the set with four mirrored versions of the raw media in addition to the camera masters, which totaled about 1 terabyte of video.
