Long Live the Edit Suite!

I’ve long been interested in the relationship between real estate and post production. So I pleasantly surprised to read today’s Quartz Obession: The cubicle!

250: Square feet of office space per worker in the US in 2000

190: Square feet of office space per worker in the US in 2005

Recent research is proving that opening offices are terrible for productivity. But the trend towards less office space per worker is undeniable. At some point that is going to collide with the minimum requirements of a room to be an edit suite: must be completely enclosed; must have room for a preview monitor and speakers; must have room for a producer to screen comfortably.

I’m curious to see how the edit suite of the future continues to evolve alongside technology that enables remote editing like Bebop Technology.

  1. I’m seeing a trend toward cubicles instead of Edit Suites… or working remotely.

    Open offices don’t work for post production. The noise level makes it difficult to sync and search for sound bites. I understand that smaller offices mean lower rents but the savings is offset by lower productivity.
