Where we are going

Back in 1995 (around the time MGM’s Braveheart was sweeping the floor with award wins) a few friends in post-production met at their local Soho watering hole.

They wanted to discuss the future of the film industry. After a beer or two they concluded that if they didn’t make what they needed, nobody else would. They needed to find a way to send large digital files to each other quickly and securely. And so Sohonet began.
