iSolutions and Film Roman team up to build new Asset Management System

Film Roman Media is the motion picture, animation, television, and home video division of Film Roman, LLC.

Film Roman Media is a full service production and distribution company, creating proprietary intellectual properties as well as content created under contract for other media companies.

The Information Technology team at Film Roman Media was seeking a FileMaker-based system to handle digital asset management and production tracking.

Historically, Film Roman has depended on manual management of assets and tracking of production progress. The FileMaker-based system  streamlined and  automated these tasks.


Instead of connecting to a mapped drive on a fileshare and manually sorting through data, both corporate and production- based users needed to be able to use the FileMaker portal (via FileMaker Pro client or FileMaker Custom Web Publishing) to upload, download, sort, track, etc their data.

The data these users accessed through the FileMaker portal continued to live on their department/production fileshares but, once ingested into the FileMaker app, became modifiable on those fileshares only by the FileMaker app.

iSolutions delivered the system by the beginning of the following season for animated shows like “Dan vs The World” and “Beavis and Butthead”.
