Like many companies around the world, French independent CG animation studio TeamTO is adjusting to its new normal during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We were able to convert 100 percent of our work force to telecommuting from home within three days and 70 percent by the second day because of several logistical advantages,” says Guillaume Hellouin, founder and president, TeamTO. “First of all, six months ago, our tech team carried out exercises to test how we could work remotely, keeping the data at the studio, in preparation for moving to our new studio in 2021. For security purposes, we want to have centralized data servers in the studio. Right now, with this system, our staff has encrypted access to images in their computers in the office, but not the data, which has allowed us to transition to working from home without risking the security of our clients. Another advantage is that we use HP computers, which have a very efficient protocol for working remotely already installed, enabling us to move very quickly. Also, all of our work is done in-house, in our own studios with nothing subcontracted to the far east, removing another layer of coordination and delay from the process."
