    I’m doing an edit with a quick turnaround, and need to have the shooter upload footage for me (rather than shipping a drive). In the past, I’ve used Google Drive & Dropbox but have had issues with large file sizes and zipping/unzipping and am wondering if there’s a better solution. Is there a site that I can have them upload to that’s better equipped for large video files?
    And to take it a step further, what about any cloud-based editing platforms? Do those exist? I would love to be able to upload footage to a cloud, and have the ability to edit remotely, or hand off a project to someone and have them take over the edit without needing to ship a drive.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. And FYI, I typically edit in Premiere Pro.

    Shared cloud storage, and editing from the cloud is possible…but it does come at a price. Here is one option for you:

    If your media is less than a terabyte, wetransfer works extremely well. I’ve worked on a number of projects where the media was sent to me from the field and it’s always worked without issue.

    Thanks Greg. I’m taking a look at wetransfer, but while I see it does give you a terabyte of storage, seems like you can only upload/send 20GB at a time. Do you know if there’s a workaround there?

    thanks again.

    Thanks Shane! I’ll look into that.

    would probably be cheaper to just use AWS directly. that would cut out a lot of the overhead from beepbeep.
    this could also be a good time to start a remote-rent-my-workstation model when it’s not being used.

    I believe that’s per file. In the past my producer has simply sent me multiple wetransfers.
