Good morning, good night!

Today was just another day of working on an international production, with a long Skype session between Penny, the Production Accountant, in London, and Emily, the Accounts Assistant and I in the Perth office. With all of the files and paperwork here in Australia, and Penny and Emily, both able to access the online account software at the same time, it works a lot better than you would think.
With effects houses and sound studios now installed with online and ISDN hook-ups, it is quite common for films to use such technology in postproduction to keep up the communication and work flow when distance may be an issue. The only problem is, with time differences, it's usually up to one party (or both) to get up very early or stay up very late.
