The New Year brings vastly improved crew scheduling as well as improvements for cast availability & scheduling!

Crew booking

The new crew booking now allows you to visually;

    • schedule availability for everybody, a team, a department or an individual for a day, part of a day or an extended period
    • record planned absences – which is helpful on longer productions
    • confirm bookings
    • view crew scheduling per month, week, team and department with smart colours to quickly find potential problems

Cast booking

Cast booking is no longer a joint functionality with cast Day out of Day. It is now a separate but integrated feature to make cast booking easier for non-fiction productions. The primary improvement is that you now schedule directly into the booking page, not via the cast production profile. For ease of use, cast and crew bookings are very similar.

    • add availability, view scheduled shooting days and confirm bookings for a day, part of a day or an extended period
    • record planned absences – which is helpful on longer productions
    • view cast scheduling per month or week with smart colours to quickly find potential problems

Cast Day out of Days

While the Cast booking is the schedule from the cast point of view and includes availability and bookings input, the DooD is the work schedule from the character point of view.

It’s streamlined for drama with detailed shooting information and cast availability information – if a cast member has been linked to the character.

Daily cast schedule

The daily cast schedule (Cast & Character > Daily) is the daily schedule for cast members, from transport via makeup & hair, wardrobe and rehearsals. It is what creates Cast Calls in the call sheets.

It has a vastly improved user interface, and the user functionality is in line with cast and crew booking.

To appear in the daily cast schedule, a cast member must be available or booked in the Cast booking. If you have scheduled a cast member for shooting that does not yet have a booking, Dramatify will show you a warning, and help you add a booking.
