ETC

Intranet and project management designed to facilitate film production chain

Roles: UX designer, User research, project manager, QA

ETC Intranet is a private network created to serve the film production companies inside the holding ETC: Mixer, CB Filmes and Pan Filmes. The system provides tools tailored for the film production workflow, allowing official staff and freelancers to search and share information.

The main section, Jobs, aggregates information and files from ongoing projects during their entire production cycle. From the research, production, post-production, and launch phases, all materials are organized and accessible.

The ETC intranet also offers a wiki section, a logging tool to track freelancers working hours, chat window, and a video player to preview all previous productions from the archives.

Process

With around 200 official employees and an extended network of freelancers, the biggest challenge for the ETC holding companies is the communication among its diverse staff members. To design a custom made tool to facilitate their internal communications, I interviewed people with various roles in the film production scope:

Phase 1: Open ended interviews with different people, from the CEO to the film editors, mapping the pain points in their daily tasks and communications
Phase 2: Wireframing
Phase 3: Second round of interviews using printed mock ups and A/B tests
Phase 4: Layout
Phase 5: Code
