It’s the 7th time this morning that you’ve been asked to dig through another department’s folder to find a file. This means another 10 minutes spent on navigating an unfamiliar folder structure. Wouldn’t it be amazing to free up your brain from constantly searching and asking for stuff, and actually be able to focus on your job?
With ProductionPro, you’ll be able to see approved storyboards, pre-vis, concept art (and more) in one place. Even better? You can control how the information is organized based on what you need at any time. 🎉
1. See references grouped by scripted scenes, schedule, sets.
While out on a scout, you heard there are some newly-approved concepts from the Art and VFX departments. Grab your phone and group your files by “Department” for a quick view of the latest from those departments. You can even group them by “Scene” or “Schedule” to see how those changes affect scripted scenes or shoot days.
All references are updated with each script and schedule revision (that’s our job!), so you can be assured the information is up-to-date. 💁♀️
2. Search specific information with filters.
Remember that day you had to request files from various departments to cross-reference the set designs, location photos, and storyboards for next week’s scenes? It’s now as simple as selecting those filters in your Media Library to pull up all of those files.
And you know what else is nice? Not having to head into the office to find that information or emailing multiple people for it. 😅
3. Share a curated view with others.
You’re about to hit the pillow and you get that 1AM text message asking for the previs and storyboards for the next two days. Here’s a tip to get them what’s needed in 30 seconds. Pull up your Media Library, choose the “Previs” and “Storyboards” filters for the next shoot days, copy the link for that, and paste it in the text message. They’ll be able to click on that link and see exactly what you’ve curated for them. Now go get some shut-eye. 😴
