Experience

  • Framebench - Google Docs for Creative Professionals (Development)
    https://techcrunch.com/2013/02/22/framebench-is-a-google-docs-for-creative-collaboration/

    Framebench was developed by me and co-founder Rohit in collaboration with an established animation movie production house based out of Pune, India.

    The studio did daily reviews with their creative directors sitting out of the US and Framebench was built to help them create well-defined tasks out of this feedback. Further, they could compare newer revisions with previous ones to see if all the feedback was implemented.

    Eventually, Framebench was expanded to include other media types including images, PDFs, and other documents.
