When the iPad came out we immediately realized it’s potential for use as a production tool.  The interface opened up a new way of thinking for us to access our database of contacts and resources to more effeciently create our production books.  This new production book program also allows us to “re-purpose” the information into multiple formats if necessary, as well as being able to add time saving functions that are crucial in the pre-production and wrap phases of our jobs.

We also have started archiving the production books as PDF files in the iBooks app on the iPad so we have them to refer to if necessary.

All of this allows us to be more effecient and reduce costs to bring in our projects on time and under budget.

The Kaplan Thaler Group were so taken by our casting tools, that they were introduced to when we produced the HSDD shoot in January for them, they wanted to use them when shooting with a different photographer.

The new photographer had his own production team so we worked with them on how to use the tools at productionlogin.com for their casting and locations, as well as sending our team out to shoot the video to upload to the site.

We actually started out with this concept back on the Palm IV – collecting the data on location while scouting.

Now on the iPhone,  this App can sync with our desktop location database after a long day on the road of scouting and not have to spend hours typing the data for each location.  Then we import the images into the computer and upload to the web, all in much less time.

The App has 5 screens, each with large fields to enter the different types of data.  Touch the GPS field and the App grabs the GPS information for where your standing so the desktop program can grab a map, touch the Voice Memo field and record up to 2 minutes for each location record, or go to the Images tab and enter the information on each shot.

With all of these tools designed to work together, the end of a long day of scouting doesn’t mean more long hours getting the images and data ready to upload to the web.  All of this is designed to work seamlessly with the production tools on www.productionlogin.com so we get to dinner at a reasonably time.

A good friend from my days at IFILM is a partner in Riverfront Stages in Southern California and he asked for help with photographing their standing sets and putting together a website. So we went in and applied the technology of HDRI to make the lighting requirements less critical and then created the website for them.  2 months later their business was booming again.  I don’t know if it was because of the pictures and website, but I’d like to think so.
