In 2011, FTP Media was contracted by MZTV, the production and distribution branch of ZoomerMedia Limited, to build a digital archive of the legacy of work produced by the company’s founder, Moses Znaimer. In the role of Associate Producer, Lisa Santonato catalogued, digitized and archived more than two hundred hours of video tape for the company’s internal reference library. In addition, she assisted the Producer in the daily organization of shows going to air on Vision TV, a ZoomerMedia channel.
FTP Media was called upon to video archive and capture still frames for two of the Art Gallery of Ontario‘s 2010 exhibition catalogues: Julian Schnabel: Art and Film, and Black Ice – David Blackwood’s Prints of Newfoundland.
FTP Media was hired for a one-year contract to consult on and digitally archive Bruce Mau Design‘s entire body of work, firstly by taking more than 8 terabytes of offline digital media assets (located on hundreds of CD- and DV-ROMs) and transferring them to the BMD servers. Then, through a process of cataloguing all materials, FTP established a comprehensive, locally-based media archive. As a result of this lengthy and detail-oriented process, many items representing significant areas of client work were now available internally, allowing the design firm the means to access and showcase their extensive body of work and develop a complete website redesign.
From 2003 to 2008, FTP Media provided content management, media archival, video production and consulting services for the phenomenally-creative musical genius, Canada’s own Spookey Ruben.
