Stripboard & one liner for mobile and print

A stripboard is automatically added to your Dramatify production as you create your shooting schedule. It both got a lot of nifty add-ons for use on mobile as well as a flexible one liner for printing.

Where do I find the stripboard?
The stripboard is located under the “Scenes” menu. Click on Stripboard in the orange toolbar.
The stripboard before scheduling

Before you have started your scheduling, your stripboard is empty because you have not yet added any scenes to your scheduling.

Stripboard before scheduling

Your stripboard during and after scheduling

When you have started your scheduling your script, the scenes start to appear in the order you have scheduled them. (Note that you do the scheduling under Planning > Scheduling.)

At the top of the stripboard underneath the Show/Hide bar,  you’ll see production stats with episodes, productions days, total pages, estimated running time and estimated production time.

Production day information

Dramatify have five different types of call sheets. The normal shooting call sheets, have a small film camera icon to the left, Shooting call sheet .

The other icons that may appear (if you use these types of call sheets) are:

  • Preparation call sheet A todo icon for any kind of prep days
  • Call sheets for travel A suitcase icon for travel days
  • Holiday call sheets A candle icon for holidays
  • Other call sheet An “other” icon for any other use you’d like

You have also the date and the unit base if you have connected that to the call sheet (not in the scheduling).

Any banners appear as you have added them in the scheduling.

Scene information

In each scene, the scene information is quite self-explanatory, but a few things are important to point out:

  • A scene number like the first scene in the image, 5:1, means the scene is split and this is scene 5, part 1. Below you see the second part of the scene, 5:2.
  • The PGS and DAY just before the set and synopsis, are the page length (PGS) of the scene, and DAY is the script day.
  • ST and PT to the right means Segment Time, i.e. the estimated finished time of each scene, and Production Time, i.e. the estimated production time of the scene.
  • The number in the dark grey box to the right is the production day number.
Show / hide information

You can decide exactly which information you’d like by showing or hiding information on the strips.

Filter the stripboard

You can fine tune your stripboard by filtering:

  • Show all production days, or only shooting days
  • Show all teams, or only one specific team
  • Show only certain producton (or shooting) days
  • Add a top note beneath the headline (turned on in the Show/Hide controls).

Print the stripboard on paper or as a pdf

While Dramatify helps you lessen the environmental impact of your production and make all information as readable as possible regardless of the size of the screen, sometimes you want to print certain information or make a pdf.

Design your stripboard or one liner as you want it, then click on the Edit menu to the right in the orange toolbar and select Print.

Now, depending on your web browser there are a few different choices you can do.

In the print selection popup, you can select if you want the web browser header and footer and if you want your scene list in colour or black and white.

Google Chrome

In Chrome, background colours are default as is  the Header and Footer. Deselecting “Print Headers and Footers” leaves you with clean page in colour. Deselecting “Background graphics” removes the stripboard colours and leaves you with a black and white stripboard.

By selecting your destination to the left in the upper part of the page, you can print to pdf or select a printer and print on paper.

NOTE! Chrome have a bug. If you use “Character names as IDs” and would like the the index of Characters & Cast on one page, and that the stripboard starts on the next, please use the Firefox browser instead.

 

Apple Safari

In Safari, background colours are default as is  the Header and Footer. Deselecting “Print headers and footers” leaves you with clean page in colour. Deselecting “Print backgrounds” removes the stripboard colours and leaves you with a black and white stripboard.
