Shot Lister - Film set schedule tool for Directors

By Reel Apps Inc.

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Shot Lister is the only truly professional shot list & scheduling app. Take that crumbled piece of paper out of your back pocket & touch the digital future of shot listing.

Shot Lister revolutionizes the art of shot listing from pre-production to the minute by minute decisions on set. It's designed by experienced filmmakers to deliver the only solution that can build, organize, schedule & share shot lists & shooting schedules digitally.

Shooting a film never goes to plan, now instead of scribbling over your printed out spreadsheet, you can get back on track with a flick of a finger.

Shot Lister comes with TWO options:

SHOT LISTER which is more than capable of handling most indie productions & includes the ability to add hundreds of scenes & thousands of shots, customizable categories & multi-cam support. This is a one time purchase of $13.99US & all updates are free.

SHOT LISTER PRO is for more complex productions that require specific features.. These include the ability to import scripts, add storyboards, circle takes & sync files. PRO is an optional in-app purchase with an annual subscription of $13.99 US and can be cancelled at anytime. Subscribers really help bring new features much sooner to both Shot Lister & Shot Lister Pro.

Shot Lister is designed to look great on all iOS devices, including iPhone & Apple Watch!

Easily organize & store hundreds of scenes & thousands of shots with the flick of a finger. We support scene letter revisions, 1/8 page counts, "i" and "o" exclusion & cast breakdown tracking. All to fit a variety of professional workflows.

The only software available to easily create a shooting schedule on a shot by shot & minute by minute basis. Rearrange scenes in Stripboard view & easily check what is yet to be shot or scheduled.

Experience the truly ground breaking “Live” production mode to see exactly how you are doing to the minute & re-organize the day in a matter of seconds. Let Shot Lister show you exactly how many minutes ahead or behind you are.

Every project and director is different, customize and order every category to your own needs. Re-name the user category for any specific use, like tracking props or wardrobe. Customize the lens and gear list to fit your package.

Assign shots to different cameras & group them together to be shot simultaneously. Supports up to 26 cameras.

Build shot lists in Excel or Numbers using our website templates then import directly into Shot Lister.

Export beautifully formatted PDFs or the entire Shot Lister project file (SHL) via Dropbox or email. Also export a CSV to continue to work on your desktop.

An annual subscription of $13.99US purchased inside the app, gives you access to the following features. It automatically renews annually & can be canceled at any time.

Sync your project file with other Shot Lister users. Keep the entire crew up to date live. Also manage crew privileges as "view only" or "view and edit" to share authorship with collaborators.

Import Final Draft or Fountain scripts into Shot Lister & let it instantly build a project, generating all the scene meta data & cast list to save time. Convert Celtx to Fountain to import.

Add Storyboards to every shot & display full screen in the Storyboard Theatre. View your plan, see which boards are left to be shot in Shooting or Scene order.

In the time it takes to tap a finger, circle the best takes & export the data in SHL or PDF.

Customer Reviews

Decent but lack some basic options

We tried it on a film shoot and it was a bit of a headache to actually use it right due to the fact at day of filming things can go a bit off planned and so sometimes you will need to add shots or adjust, when there are multiple cameras involved.

The inconsistently sections (some areas requiere you to save to continue others simple using cancel) makes it a bit hard to follow through.

And when there are good takes, the circle takes option lack the ability to add additional notes (about these good takes) make it a need to jog info down to paper and then that means it requieres some combination of tablet and paper.

It's not bad but it's just felt incomplete. I will try it for another simple filming and will see.

Update. After three weeks of trying to use it on our feature film shoot. We decided not to continue using it. It's too time confusing while on set when there's a readjustment of the shot list or need to make additional shot list. Not to mention the limited tools to make it more intuitive. So l have cancelled my yearly subscription and decided leave this app alone.

If you use multiple cameras this can become extremely difficult to use.

Great ideas but when in real environment with script supervisor, it's more headache to make it work than to use pen and pencil.

Great program..

I use this on three different platforms, MacOs iPad and my iPhone. It's awesome for planning out shoots.

However there are issues with with uploading and syncing between devices. Let's say I create a shot list on my Mac, I try to sync it to use on my iPhone, but it doesn't work. So I'll save a file out locally and try to reimport it on my iPhone to make adjustments on the go. That works, but now that file I've adjusted won't sync to the cloud off my iPhone. So I again can't access it on any other device.

Another issue is, when trying to save out a PDF with images off of my iPhone, it makes the PDF but the images don't show up. And yes I set it to export with images. Sometimes it works but often times it doesn't export the images.

It seems to work the best on iPad.

Saying all that I still recommend the app, besides those strange technical issues, the program itself is SUPER useful.


Love this app. Makes it incredibly easy to come up with a shot list. Very intuitive and solid tutorials on the website. Would like to be able to add some more customizable shot columns (currently only has one), but overall great app!
