If your work starts with a script — if you attend production meetings or go on location scouts — if you have to track on-set continuity — if you take and store photos of sets or props — if you make shot lists — if you make and track orders, rental, purchases, or repairs — if you run a crew — even if you just track the hours of a crew — then DEPARTMENT HEAD is for you.
DEPARTMENT HEAD allows you to import a script and link all your work to a secure database built from the script. When the script is revised, simply import the revised script and your database adjusts.
Create and distribute breakdowns and budgets; set To-Do’s, store your notes, photos, reference videos, links or other attachments all in one place — all from one App — DEPARTMENT HEAD.
DEPARTMENT HEAD puts it all at your fingertips. Store your breakdowns, contacts, reference photos, schedules, old scripts — all your work for a film or even for an entire season of a TV show, all on one iPAD.
