This is a paid sponsorship by Western Digital.

WD® reached out to me to see if I wanted to partner to make a video demonstrating how I could use their My Cloud Pro PR4100 media server in my filmmaking business. This couldn’t have come at a better time for me as this is by far the most headache inducing part of my filmmaking workflow. 10 years of freelancing has created a data storage and backup nightmare; I have dozens of hard drives scattered all throughout both my house and my office!

In this video you will see my first steps in changing my workflow for the better with the My Cloud Pro PR4100 device.

The My Cloud Pro PR4100 device will store all of my projects that are currently in edit, my entire photo library, master edits and my clips I save for future projects and stock requests. All of this content- my entire library is accessible from anywhere around the world that I have a decent internet connection. I can also easily give access to this footage when sharing with client where they can choose to stream or download.

Whilst using this system is very new to me I am optimistic that it will solve my current issue of juggling countless hard drives while providing me a fast and easily accessible data and media management hub with Plex while streamlining my workflow.
