Gracenote Exec Says Hollywood Is Using ‘Siloed, Legacy Processes’ to Manage Productions (Video)

TheGrill 2022: “Studios need modern solutions to make informed decisions about their growing pipeline of projects,” said product VP Filiz Bahmanpour

As part of TheWrap’s annual business conference TheGrill, software company Gracenote held a morning presentation of its new software designed to help studios keep up with their growing production slates as they answer the demand for more movies and TV shows in the streaming era.

Filiz Bahmanpour, VP of product for Gracenote, pointed to a 96% increase in original titles produced for the top six streaming services — Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Apple TV+, HBO Max and Disney+ — from 2019 to 2022. At the same time, studio layoffs caused by mergers and the COVID-19 pandemic have made it more difficult for production staff to maintain internal workflow of active shoots.
