The E Studio Network Story
E Studio Network (ESN) is the entertainment industry's pioneer in web-based TV and film production collaboration. For over 10 years, ESN has been used by major studios in Hollywood and around the world.
ESN was founded in 2001 by producer Mark Tarlov. It was originally designed as a Hollywood film and TV procurement platform but evolved into the most comprehensive workforce and product management platform on the market. Over 2,000 TV and film productions have used the ESN platform.
In 2010 ESN contracted with 3 Story Software, a leading workforce management company based in Connecticut, to re-write the original ESN product on a scalable and more secure modern web architecture. 3 Story Software rebuilt the product and re-launched it in 2011 and subsequently acquired the ESN assets in November 2012.
ESN has become a key product of 3 Story Software and continues to evolve towards becoming an even bigger platform, soon to be integrated with major payroll organizations, a mobile version planned for later in 2013, and much more.
