In order to get access to behind the scenes footage from two recent films directed by Jolie Pitt, MediaStorm and The Wall Street Journal Magazine were provided sample footage, which then had to be approved by Universal Studios. Doing so meant that MediaStorm had to edit with footage which at the end of the day, may or may not be approved for use.
MediaStorm first created a cut of the film with the supplied temporary footage. That footage was then broken down into a shot list which was sent to Universal for approval. The process for approval took several weeks, so it was key to get them the shot list early.
The films were premiered at The Wall Street Journal Magazine’s fifth annual Innovator Awards on November 4, 2015 and were released online the following day.
With five global editions spanning 62 countries, WSJ. Magazine—which publishes 12 issues a year—is The Wall Street Journal's luxury-lifestyle publication dedicated to the power and passions of the Journal's readership.
