Studio Binder is looking to shake up the production world. The startup wants to alleviate the stress and grunt work of following-up on call sheets by making it more efficient to send out personalized call times via email and SMS, and track when they’re confirmed.
.Here’s a video that covers how the service works:
Crew and Talent Profiles:
Getting started is simple enough. First you invite all of your cast and crew to a project for free. Invitees create profiles with important details like contact info, payment details, credited name, dietary allergies, travel details and other bits of key information that the production unit would usually be tasked with gathering one by one. The whole process is streamlined so that the cast and crew provide these details to the production themselves, reducing human error.
Sending Call Times:
Sending a call time is as simple as selecting the cast and crew, setting their unique call times and selecting whether you want to send call times as email, text message or both. That’s right, call times as SMS. For busy people on the move (and some not-so-techy people), this can be a huge benefit.
You can even add personal notes, like reminding your PA pick up some equipment, or a cast member to bring a key piece of wardrobe.
View Call Time Confirmations:
After call times have been sent, Studio Binder asks all recipients to confirm they’ll be on set by either clicking by a big, red “Confirm” button in the call time email, or by replying “1” to their SMS call time. This way a producer or AD can easily log in and see who confirmed and who didn’t, and follow up if necessary.
Studio Binder is looking to launch in March and offering Film Courage readers priority access to the beta, and free usage for up to one year if you refer friends.
ABOUT STUDIO BINDER:
Send and Track Call Times by Email and SMS. Bring your productions into the 21st Century.
Making and distributing call sheets for every day of a production is repetitive grunt work. Plus there’s no way of knowing if a call sheet was received, or if the person will show up.
Studio Binder provides producers, AD’s, and indie filmmakers with the ability to quickly send and track call sheets and send them via emails AND text message, and track when they’re confirmed by the recipient.
There are over 100 productions shot in LA on any given day, so streamlining this experience could mean a huge relief across the entire industry.
