Do yourself a favour – try not to lose all your work

God bless Elliot Grove over at Raindance for writing this article! As I was reading it I realised that I hadn’t configured the backup for this very website!

The article is ostensibly pointed at filmmakers, but in truth it is for anyone who uses a computer. Rule #1 check your passwords Rule #1a BACKUP.

The one thing that is missing from the article is mentioning Dropbox. Recently Dropbox upped it’s storage (I now get 1TB for the price I was paying for 1GB) and I can back things up from all over the web directly to my dropbox using OAuth authentication. Awesome.

But otherwise, please, for the love of GOD, read this article and act on it.

I am currently a student in the Raindance Film Degree Masters program. This site comes from the research I am doing as I learn more about film production and distribution.
