Smarter call sheets. In print. In your phone.
Save time, frustration and trees with Dramatify’s smart call sheet solution. Now also introducing two new call sheet templates for print. One for excellent readability. One for compact information.
Work smarter & faster
In Dramatify, you only add information once. When you open your call sheet draft, most of it will allready be automatically ready made for you.
Sounds scary? It’s not. Dramatify simply draws on the information you (or your AD) already have added, from general production settings and principals, to scene scheduling, crew scheduling and daily cast scheduling as well as general call sheet settings and weather forecasts. You only need to add the last details!
Work solo or delegate!
You, or your AD, can be solely responsible for the call sheets. If you want to speed up things, allow assistants to help, or the various Heads of Departments to add their own notes and requirements to the call sheets.
With Dramatify, it’s super easy to pre-produce call sheets weeks, or even months, ahead to ease the work load during shooting. Add last minute details and publish at the right time!
Update on the fly!
If you have a quickly shifting production due to weather or other circumstances, you can update Dramatify’s call sheets on the fly. Team members using Dramatify’s digital call sheets will have the updates the next moment. But message the team and notify them about the update to make sure everyone is onboard!
Read call sheets on your phone, tablet or in print
By inviting cast and crew to Dramatify, they can not only collaborate, message and get their own work information, but also access call sheets they way they want: in their phones, on their tablets or print them!
Naturally, you can also print copies to hand out on set, or print as PDFs and send by email.
Two new call sheet templates for print!
We have just added two brand new call sheet templates for print. When you print, you simply select which version you prefer. You can of course both print on paper as well as a PDF.
– The Modern Call sheet template is focused on readability.
– The Compact call sheet template is focused on getting as much information into a sheet of paper as possible and features small font sizes and narrow line heights.
Learn more about Dramatify’s call sheets!
Learn more about how Dramatify’s call sheets work in our feature overview and in the call sheet tutorial. There you can also view call sheet samples.
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
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
- 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
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.
- Location with a map link
- Unit base with a map link
You can also sort the set list report on:
- INT, EXT, INT/EXT, EXT/INT
- Alphabetically by set name
- Production day
The location list and 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
- Unit base
- Episodes & scenes
You can also group the shooting locations on production day in the header dropdown.
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!

Dramatify now supporting scripts and screenplays in Arabic and Farsi!
The film industry in countries with languages written from right to left, have had a hard time working with script development since none of the usual screenwriting programs support RTL languages.
After requests from the Gulf, Dramatify launched support for both drama screenplays and non-fiction scripts at the Dubai Film Festival that currently is underway. The support works for all languages written from right to left, as mentioned Arabic and Farsi but also Hebrew and Urdu.
We at Dramatify hopes this will help the film and TV industry throughout the Middle East!
