Going virtual can make a company more efficient and cost effective. Long time Annapolis media company, Take One Digital Media has gone virtual. "With VPN, VOIP/video conferencing telephone, and FTP technology readily available, our employees started working more and more from their homes. They were able to experience a better quality of life by not commuting and having the flexibility for personal and family time”, explains President Dan Powell. The virtualization has allowed Powell to spend more time in Florida to assist with parental care issues. "From our Annapolis office, I am sent digital files for editing and then post them for review on our FTP site. For the past few years our biggest clients were in Chicago and Philadelphia, so this is nothing new for our workflow.” Take One has downsized from its 4,000 Sq. Ft. building at 1415 Forest Drive to a smaller office in the rear. The Annapolis office has an Avid editing suite, ProTools workstation, DVD duplication, and voice over booth. The only effect on customers is the availability of Take One’s sound stage. "The stage was somewhat of a white elephant; the cost couldn’t be sustained based on the revenue.” 90% of Take One’s stage work is green screen. They have established a relationship with a local conference center/hotel for green screen shooting. Powell says, "Our employees and customers are very excited about the change, especially with this winter’s weather. They’re at home working in front of their fireplace. I think that will spark creativity.”

Take One Digital Media is a web, print design, video production company and offers boutique hosting for clients looking for a turn-key vendor. For more information please contact Liz Thibodeau at 410-263-1686. liz@take-one.net www.take-one.net
