In Topic: Project management software?

27 March 2013 - 10:31 PM

Not lazy time is money. Would every artist need to be their own user or just producers/managers? Too bad they raised the price for 19$/user I'd have given it a try without a second thought at 49$ starts to add up.

 

Every artist would be a user. They recently did a survey and from the results of that survey they decided on the one price model. One one hand there are some benefits, on another it gets pricey for smaller shops.

We're a small shop with 5 people doing various post related tasks with two producers. I did a ton of research and never found anything that was comparable to Shotgun but cheaper without some of the extra features. Never found anything worth it, ended up going with Shotgun at $19/user price, which is no longer. Now it's the $49/user tier for everything which is good on one hand but expensive for smaller places. Would be great if they offered a lower flat monthly rate up to X number of users.

 

It's amazing at tracking shots/sequences/edits/assets/whatever. So much customization so it takes a minute to set up a workflow that you like, but once you have it going it's pretty smooth. I would love to get the API access to really tie it into our workflow and make it easier for us, but too much money/time.

 

 

 

 

Honestly from my experience project management software seems like overkill for smaller shops. Unless you are doing a feature film, I just don't see why a spreadsheet or tables can't do the trick.

 

Lazy producers???

 

 

Seems like a lazy comment…we're small and Shotgun saves us time. No messy email chains that take forever to read through. No shared spreadsheets to dig through. That shit takes time to manage, lots of it in fact, why not make it more efficient.

This is very annoying. It's especially hard to explain to some clients why it's the way it is.

I was watching The Killing last night and the two shots were always framed so that they favored either the right or left of the frame, essentially leaving one half empty. Pretty stupid if you ask me.

Well, here is NYT David Pogue stating an Apple executive told him new desktop designs are in the works for 2013. Have a good year! :D

I think this makes total sense…as much as it can with Apple at least. There is no reason to do a minor update to a line you're going to kill off.

Walked by Shake Shack a few times but didn't get a chance to try it. Ended up going to Ess-A-Bagel, the NY Dosas cart at Wash Sq park, Katz's (I had to see if it really was that good), and ducked into the Holland Bar in Hell's Kitchen, which is a great little dive.

Wanted to got to MOMA but that line was out of control.
