I’m part of a newly started film distribution company operating in Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
I need to establish a platform to share film information (Meta data), distribution plans, marketing plans, and communication - internal (staff, management and filmproducers and external (partners, institutions etc)
I believe that the datebase will be the unique film meta data on which the processes, will originates from.
There will be some 15-20 film titles / year and probably 75-100 when the database reach its peak.
I need some with experience building a similar database and as a start can give some input and maybe help me building the platform.

Hi Sergio

Thanks and sorry for the late answer

I am still trying to get an overview of the possibilities with Airtable and therefore a detailed requirements specification has not yet been prepared.

Over the next approx. 36 months I have to enter into distribution agreements for 75-100 unique feature films that come from 40-50 different producers across the Nordic countries.

(I have made a simple flowchart of the needed / expected information flow I expect each film to go through during the period our company has to distribute the film)

I use Pipedrive as a my CRM system but only for registration not for the sales part and Trello is something I might use but really have started up yet)

I suppose Airtable can handle this for each individual movie but I’m unsure if the system can handle +75 movies across the different stake- and rights-holders without necessarily having access to each other’s information. Eg. a film producer may only have access to his own film, a cross-promotion partner can only have access to one specific film etc, while the company still have access to all films across the different views and timelines.

I’ll be happy to have an on-line meeting and discuss the possibilities and then decide what to do.

Best regards

Hi @Michael_Fleischer,

Thanks for your answer; yes, it´s possible to have that scenario; the advantage with Airtable is that I can adapt it to fulfill your needed process.

In this scenario, we may use “Airtable Sync.”

¿How Airtable Sync Works_

The image above shows a general representation of what is Airtable Sync; we can create a broad master base for your team and create shared bases with filtered information for the different stakeholders with only the required information.

My work method is an iterative process, where we start with the MVP “Minimum Viable Process” with the most crucial process for your company, and we start building on top of that.

That´s why my rate is hourly based; you would stop whenever you are comfortable with the results.

72% of my clients become long-term relationships.

We can start building together so you can be ready for every growth step of the company.

I would be glad to talk in detail; Please schedule in the following link Introduction Meeting

And let me know if you came up with any other comment or question
