Produce children’s programs, kid’s shows and series efficiently – collaborate online with a modern workflow.
Children’s programs can take many forms; feature films, drama and animation series, entertainment, factuals, magazine formats, web and video content, live and studio shows – or a mix!
With three different script and rundown formats, you can select which format best suits your particular content. You can also mix script formats; use the screenplay format for pre-produced drama and docudrama content that gets mixed into a live or live-to-tape rundown as EVS content.
In Dramatify, you and your crew and cast get an integrated, flexible collaboration workflow platform specifically developed to support modern film, TV and video production demands. You can produce one-off events and features, series or daily shows. It’s that flexible!
Collaboration workflow from budgeting to playout!
Save time and money! Collaborate and communicate efficiently from budgeting to playout, or pick and choose which features suit your specific production.
Your team get the information they need according to their role and the access level the production has given them – without an overworked production assistant in the middle and without printing lots of single-use, throwaway information on paper. Go green!
Keep updated with the dashboard!
Everything is in one place! Just log in to Dramatify, and you will immediately see your dashboard of today’s planned activities and events, call sheets, automatic production updates, new messages, documents, and new team members. Everything is available with a click!
Three different script formats
With three script formats, Dramatify lets you write your show in the way that fits your project best – or mix formats! Drama can be part of a live or studio show rundown. Or use the AV script to storyboard a drama scene. Creativity is the limit. Not your software!
