Useful reports to keep the production on track!

Useful reports to keep the production on track!

Dramatify users asked for more detailed reports, and here they are! Each is easy to customise with a click or two, if you want to print or PDF reports and send to others.

The Character and Cast report

Character & Cast report

The Character and Cast report contains all important information about a character and it’s casted talent:

  • Working period: Start date, finishing date, number of days
  • Number of pages
  • Scenes
  • Episodes
  • Sets
  • Locations
  • Unit bases

As you see on top of the image, you can hide any information with a click, if you want to customise and send a report to a colleague. Underneath the show/hide buttons, you also go the stats for the number of characters in the various cast categories. If you only want to view a specific character category, like main characters or stunt persons, you filter that with a dropdown menu.

Combine the Character & Cast report with the awesome flexibility of Dramatify’s scene list, and you can very easily dig deep and get exactly the character and cast information you need.

The set report & list

Set report

While the Character & Cast report is a specific report, with Sets and Locations, we have simply extended the list functionality to give you all important information at a glance.

  • Scenes
  • Location with a map link
  • Unit base with a map link
  • Notes

You can also sort the set list report on:

  • Episodes
  • INT, EXT, INT/EXT, EXT/INT
  • Alphabetically by set name
  • Production day
  • Location

The location list and report

Location report

The location list report works pretty much the same way as the set list report. We have three types of locations:

  • Shooting locations
  • Unit base
  • Medical emergency

For each shooting location you see:

  • Location status (none, red, yellow, green)
  • Street address with map link
  • GPS coordinates with map link
  • Sets
  • Unit base
  • Episodes & scenes
  • Notes

You can also group the shooting locations on production day in the header dropdown.

Happy reporting!

New & improved screenplay import and synch!

New & improved screenplay import and synch!

we’ve just released our new and improved screenplay upload and synch.

Upload as many script revisions as you need! Import and replace one, a few or all of the scenes while keeping everything synched with your breakdown, scheduling, characters, sets and call sheets.

And if you work with a series, we keep track of the characters and sets that you already have added in previous episode screenplays.

Final Draft compatible

The improved screenplay import is built with kind support from Final Draft, and works with any Final Draft compatible screenwriting program that exports .fdx files. If you use another program, there are ways to convert and import them as well!

Write from scratch – including RTL languages

As before, you can also write directly in Dramatify which works especially well if you team write or have writers and editors in different locales.

Also, if you write in a right-to-left language like Arabic, Hebrew or Farsi, we are the only professional screenwriting solution that supports RTL. We believe everyone should help save trees!

Automagic watermarking and screenplay tracking

Automagic watermarking and screenplay tracking is built in so you protect your intellectual property. At the same time you get an easy way to distribute screenplays to your entire team – formatted for their favourite devices.

Permissions – from everybody to super secret

You can let everybody in the team read the entire script, only scenes in the call sheet or –  if you are working on a super secret story – remove scenes while still working with breakdown, scheduling and all the other functionality in Dramatify. From now on, there is no need to print scripts. Everybody have the screenplays in their pocket (well, unless your screenplay is super super secret!) Watch how below!

The VR meetup on April 13th, therefore focuses on the storytelling and technology of scripted VR – drama, entertainment, journalism, reality and live. Not so much on the amazing future, but what you can do right now.

We will show case productions from TV4, SVT, Borderline films and others, as well as panels on storytelling and technology.
