Dramatify releases technical script breakdown

Dramatify releases technical script breakdown

[vc_video link=’′]

Customers have asked us  to build out our breakdown with a proper technical breakdown. And here it is!

Now you can breakdown every aspect of your script and add anything it needs to be realised. You can add the scene items to scenes, sets or characters and select which department is responsible for the scene item.

Persistent and non-persistent scene items

To characters, you can add both persistent and non-persistent items. A persistent item is something the character should have in every scene, like glasses. Once a persistent item is added to a character, it is automatically added to each scene that you add that character to.

Sets work in a similar manner. When you add scene items to sets, they will be automatically added to all scenes using that set.

Adding scene items outside of breakdown

Since departments like set construction, props, wardrobe and makeup & hair often need to fill out the initial breakdown, they can do that at the set and character pages without needing admin privileges. They can also add scene item options to each scene item, like different brands, colors or models to try out before deciding on the right one. These lists also makes it easy to remember what to return.

Scene list and breakdown report

In the ultra sortable scene list, your team can get a condensed version of the breakdown, to some extent depending on their individual access permissions. The breakdown report that shows everything included in the breakdown can be sorted and printed on screenplay or scene.

New! Scene list and scene shooting status

New! Scene list and scene shooting status

With the new scene list and the new scene status, we give all Dramatify users complete overview over the script and the shooting status of all scenes.

From now on, users with admin rights can change the status of the scenes right in the call sheet, using any internet connected device.

When a scene is done, you simply change its status. If you’ve shot a scene that needs any kind of additional shots to be completed, you set the status to unfinished.

Scene list overview

In the new scene list (image at the top), you get an overview of the entire script. You can also filter all scenes to get lists on int/ext scenes, production days, progress status etc.

As soon as you change a scene status in the call sheet, the scene list is updated.

Dramatifying your production means staying on top of things!

Script breakdown now added to Dramatify’s scheduling suite!

Script breakdown now added to Dramatify’s scheduling suite!

Script breakdown is now added to Dramatify. It has developed out of, and far beyond, our previous annotate feature. Now you can breakdown your drama screenplay in one go, in one place, on the move and together with your team if you wish.

The script breakdown is completely integrated with both the screenplay and the planning. This means that if you need to rewrite or otherwise edit your screenplay, Dramatify’s breakdown and planning keeps pace with you.

New scenes you haven’t broken down yet are clearly marked, and you just adjust for your new material. There is no need to do your breakdown and scheduling all over again as in other solutions. Read more about how to use it in our FAQ article.

More to come

You find the new script Breakdown feature under Scenes in the right hand production menu. Why not label it “Breakdown” you might ask? Well, we will very soon add more features related to Scenes and Breakdown, so stay tuned!

Happy breaking down!

Keep up with Dramatify!
