Biggest shows yet relying on Dramatify

With an audience in the millions, Dramatify is in the core of this weekend’s big EBU live broadcast across Europe!

This weekend, 14-15th of October, Dramatify hits a great milestone when the biggest galashows yet produced on Dramatify is broadcasted live over Europe. It’s the Euroradio Choral Competition taking place at Helsinki’s Musiikkitalo (Music Centre), an European Broadcasting Union (EBU) choir competition that has been broadcasted since 1961, both on TV and radio and now also on the web. Choir singing is a hobby that currently  attracts more and more people in many countries.

The event consists of two prime time gala shows on Saturday evening and Sunday evening respectively,  live broadcasted by YLE in Finland, on radio across Europe and live streaming on the web with an audience in the tens of millions. The galas are an official part of the centennial celebration of Finland’s founding as a free nation.

YLE have been a close collaboration partner in developing Dramatify’s unique multi-camera live & studio script format, which is currently the most advanced in the world. It’s the core of the galas production, with all other Dramatify features coming in to play during pre-production, planning and scheduling.

PRESS RELEASE: Automagic Daily Production Reports

PRESS RELEASE: Automagic Daily Production Reports

Dramatify launches another innovation for the moving image industry with the unique, smart technology-driven Daily Production Reports. Their automatic functions cut hours from each shooting day.

Today, writing Daily Production Reports (DPRs)  is a laborious manual task, often taking place late at night after a long production day on set. Failing to file the DPR in time might not only mean an angry executive producer, but worse, that co-producers and bond companies may halt the production.

The Daily Production Report is an industry cornerstone

The Daily Production Report is a cornerstone for every film and TV-drama production, as well as many entertainment and documentary productions. It summarises the progress of the production as well as lists expenses, vital legal documents like personal releases and location releases, and adds important notes on subjects such as health & safety incidents.

Another innovative feature

Dramatify leads the development in innovative digital, cloud-based production management tools for the moving image industry. With the new automagic Daily Production Reports, Dramatify use smart technology to do the heavy lifting and automatically gather daily information from other smart Dramatify features such as:

The user can then manually add media usage, details and corrections as well as log expenses in multiple currencies. The digital version also includes scanned receipts.

A digital approval and signing process

When the report is ready, Dramatify’s smart digital approval and signing process starts, where signers are notified and then digitally can handle approvals, rejections and signing with just a few clicks.

That ‘time is money’ is a well worn platitude, but on set it’s an expensive reality. Every minute costs a lot. In an industry that mainly manage productions manually, Dramatify is dedicated to innovation by building smart digital tools that saves time and money, so producers can focus on production quality and creativity.

Automate on set food & meal handling!

Automate on set food & meal handling!

Dramatify works tirelessly to help producers, teams and productions to work smarter. We just released one of our most “asked for” features: Food lists, plate count and meal costs. Automagically!

Today – as if it’s not enough to keep track of how many meals to order, plate count and break times – you also need to keep track of who is vegan, low carb, low fat, vegetarian, kosher or halal – and have a food allergy…

And on top of that, how should meal costs be handled? Is breakfast free, but 1st and 2nd meals deducted? Or taxed? And what if some cast members have different negotiated meal costs than the rest of the cast and crew? And what if we suddenly have twenty visitors on set? Phew!

Dramatify handles

  • the food preferences and food allergies for each cast and crew member.
  • daily compiled food lists with everything caterers need.
  • general meal cost settings for cast and crew.
  • individual meal cost settings (optional).
  • easy check in of meal times and consumed meals.
  • .csv export of complete working hours, break times, plate counts and individual meal cost instructions.
  • easy addition of extra plates as well as snacks
