Robert Kruger of Lesspain Software | Interview snippets from NAB BuZZ 2018 podcasts with Larry Jordan
Larry Jordan: Well what does the word workflow mean to you?
Robert Kruger: Well I mean it‚Äôs a very generic and very broad term. It‚Äôs basically anything that happens when you touch media files. For some people, the most obvious thing is anything between camera and editing or camera and media management system. But for some people it‚Äôs just organizing the media on their storage show, finding parts of their footage to use in social media. So it‚Äôs very different.
LJ: What was it that caused you and your team to start the company?
RK: Well essentially it was experience as a filmmaker. Running into those problems and the limitations of the existing tools at the time, having to jump between five different tools, three different players. Format and compatibilities were a nightmare and we thought there must be a better way. We had been building huge cloud-based software for media management for larger companies. We thought we might apply that experience to the content production and filmmaking space.
