Plan and schedule your production – with easy drag’n’drop!

Planning and scheduling your production should be smart and easy, not something to tear out your hair over.

With Dramatify’s new drag and drop interface, you can plan and schedule any number of episodes with up to five simultaneous teams, each with their own call sheet.

It’s super simple to plan and schedule with Dramatify. After linking scenes, characters and sets together in the breakdown, head over to the planning grid to add production days. Drag and drop scenes from the scene list in the left-hand column on to the correct production day and team. Smart filters and standard strip-board colours makes it easy to plan similar scenes together. When the left-hand column is empty, you know that you have planned all your scenes.

Add flags and banners

In each column you can add flags  as well as banners for any non-scene event that you want to plan during the day.

Page and production time estimates

At the bottom of each column Dramatify on the fly automatically calculates an estimation of

  • total number of script pages.
  • estimated finished material for that day and team.
  • estimated production time for that day and team. This lets you keep an eye on total working hours!

Splitting and unsplitting scenes

Today, as filming becomes more complex, the need to split scenes into several parts increase. Scenes can be split as many times as you like and different parts can be split on several days and / or several teams. It’s perfect for productions with a lot of CGI and special effects. You can add notes, time and page information to each split part.

Calendar view

Add dates to production days either manually in the Calendar or in bulk in the Days overview.

DooD – Day out of Days

Beside the scheduling, you also find the Day of of Days report for cast, making it easy to pull up into a new browser tab and use alongside the scheduler to optimise cast and extras days.

Cast & crew scheduling

Dramatify also features a comprehensive crew scheduling and daily cast scheduling with information that is automatically added into the call sheets.

Days overview

The planning tool also includes a view of unpublished and published call sheets for all production days and teams. This allows you to quickly navigate and get an overview of your work.

Integrates with your script

Regardless if you produce fiction or non-fiction, the planning feature is totally integrated with your screenplay , AV-script and multi-camera live/studio script.

HIGHLIGHTS!

Easy drag'n'ndrop interface

Schedule unlimited episodes

Schedule for up to 5 simultaneous teams

Great filters that quickly let you find the scenes you want to schedule

Any new scenes will automatically show up in the scene list. You can't miss anything!

Cast scheduling & reports

Dramatify have great support for daily cast scheduling and reports, with automatic call sheet integration as well as a Day out of day overview. 

Cast scheduling

Dramatify have a comprehensive daily cast scheduling for each production day with call and finish times, transportation details, makeup, F/X makeup, hair, rehearsals and notes. The cast scheduler can schedule both cast that are shooting that day, as well as non-shooting cast that needs to come in for rehearsals or fittings. Each cast member can be scheduled individually, but each scheduling item can also be set for everyone, for instance transport destination, scenes to be rehearsed or call times. That makes cast scheduling a fast task!

Call sheet integration

The cast scheduler feeds directly into the call sheets, and both gives each cast member their personal information as well as transport orders for drivers.

Day out of Day report

Dramatify have a standard Day out of Day report that can also be pulled up in a browser tab along with the production scheduling to optimise cast days.

Cast and character report

Dramatify have a detailed cast report with all days worked, pages, period, scenes, sets, locations and unit bases. The report can be easily formatted with a few clicks to show exactly what you want.

Call sheets in your smartphone, tablet and computer. Or print!

Call sheets that you can create fast, update with a few clicks and avoid killing a lot of innocent trees to make. Interested?

Call sheets are essential to most TV and film productions. But they are also clumsy to distribute and update. Paper. Runners. Waiting…  Dramatify gives your team call sheets to carry in their pockets that can be updated with a click. No waiting. No runners. Just there.

Call sheets available in any mobile, tablet or computer and easily updated are one of the easiest ways to make your production more efficient and increase productivity. Few industries know better than ours that time is money. Especially on location. But of course you can also print the call sheets for handouts as well.

Everything you can expect from a call sheet

Dramatify’s call sheet in the mobile, tablet and computer contains everything you can expect from a call sheet – and more! It works as well for drama productions as productions with an AV script or a multi-camera live & studio script.

What you’ll find in our call sheets:

  • Unit notes
  • Unit call times
  • Shooting call
  • Cast calls with details
  • Locations – Shooting locations, Unit base and Medical Emergency location with interactive driving directions through maps
  • Weather forecast – automatic weather report based on shooting location, updated every 3rd hour, or write a manual forecast
  • Shooting schedule – Which scenes are being filmed together with cast, characters, location and script of the scene
  • Health & Safety notes
  • Crew list
  • Requirements – for all departments. In a digital format, you can write as much as you want. Contact details to department heads are automatically included.
  • Transport orders
  • Radio channels
  • Rehearsals (or other activities)

Smart pre-production create almost automatic call sheets

During the pre-production in Dramatify, you create a lot of content and links almost without realising it. When you come to the call sheets it pays off! They are almost all done! Dramatify intelligently serves up the information you need, and you can add the final touches yourself.

Delayed or superfast? Change the schedule with the tip of your finger.

Even the best planned schedules rarely survives the reality of a shoot. You can reschedule the call sheet schedule on the fly with just your phone or tablet by drag and drop the changes you need. Your team is immediately up to date!

Set scene status with a click

Note if a scene is finished or unfinished and needs additional shooting as soon as you’re done shooting it! Use the scene list to get an overview of the status of all scenes.

Multiply team work – call sheets for several teams, 2nd unit and 3rd unit

Big shoot, multiple teams in multiple countries or multiple shifts? Dramatify helps you out!

Multiple teams is something many teams use, at least a second unit or a third unit. But increasingly we also see production lengths being compressed with two or three teams working in parallell, during different shifts of the day or in different countries or continents.

Up to five teams simultaneously

With Dramatify, you can use up to five teams simultaneously, each with their own call sheet. You can set up your teams at the beginning of pre-production, or add teams as you need during the production.

Team members can belong to several team, or no team at all, in the case of team members that don’t need call sheets. Instead of calling the teams, A, B and C, we followed Danny Boyle and use beautiful colours. Choose between red, purple and green teams along with the gold and bronze of 2nd unit and 3rd unit.

Multiple teams work great with Dramatify’s series functionality too.

 

HIGHLIGHTS!

Up to five teams simultaneously

One call sheet per team

Produce in blocks with different teams

Most features have a team select to easily view information for just one team
