As studio manager for Optic Nerve, Chris Beseckerâ€™s days used to be like a game of hide and seek, only not nearly as much fun. With five Mac G5 workstations running Final Cut and Adobe After Effects and no centralized storage at the Brooklyn facility, Besecker had to keep track of where each projectâ€™s files were and make sure those files were available to the editors on the individual workstations.
