StudioLAB is an innovation programme that applies cutting-edge technology to help solve production challenges and explore emerging storytelling tools
Mumabi, NFAPost: Salesforce and Disney Studios Content announced a five-year innovation partnership to help support Disney filmmakers and marketers using the Salesforce platform.
By naming Salesforce a StudioLAB Innovation Partner, the companies will explore new ways to use technology to manage and accelerate the content production lifecycle and support the creation of content — from the earliest ideas in development all the way through post-production and marketing.
Using technology from Salesforce Customer 360, which includes industry-leading apps for sales, service, marketing and commerce, the partnership will initially focus on reimagining production by:
1. Developing digital workflows to help manage the production and marketing of Disney Studios content.
2. Supporting executive decision-making by providing a 360 real-time view of the performance of media properties.
Deploying simple, mobile-first technologies to help studio personnel access updates and quickly collaborate in real time, from any device, anywhere.
Salesforce President and Chief Marketing Officer Sarah Franklin said Disney’s creative leadership has inspired generations with emotional storytelling and imaginative experiences.
“At Salesforce, we’ve worked to create similar magic with our brand, events and global community of Trailblazers. We are thrilled at the opportunity to help StudioLAB advance their storytelling and experiences with our technology,” said Sarah Franklin.
Disney Studios Content Chief Technology Officer Jamie Voris said Salesforce’s platform gives us the ability to accelerate and better coordinate the production process.
“With Salesforce as our Innovation Partner we can equip our marketers and storytellers with world-class technology to better deliver against the incredible slate of content we have planned for streaming and theatrical audiences,” said Jamie Voris.
Salesforce, the global CRM leader, empowers companies of every size and industry to digitally transform and create a 360° view of their customers. Salesforce has headquarters in San Francisco, with offices in Europe and Asia.
Disney Studios Content encompasses a collection of world-class entertainment studios including Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, Lucasfilm, 20th Century Studios and Searchlight Pictures that produce high-quality cinematic storytelling for both theatrical and streaming release.
