Conceived The Idea

Tobi Ogunwande @tobby123

I am an independent filmmaker and one of my films had gotten into a film festival and the festival needed me to send a downloadable copy of my film. There was just a little problem. Even though my film file size was around 2G, internet is slow in this part of my world. Of Course I had no choice but I was wrong if this was my only problem. I immediately decided to use WeTransfer for obvious reasons. I uploaded my film ( if the film size was more than 2G, that would have been another problem because it meant I would have to upgrade to a paid plan to send my film), got the download link and emailed it to the festival.

9 days later, the festival reached out and said I have to resend the film as my download link had expired! The truth is that this is the 4th time this particular thing has happened to me and I just wondered what it would cost the known file transfer platforms to give a little more latitude on the basic subscriber. I decided to build a better alternative. And so the idea for MiDrive Transfer was born.
