Everybody in film and television, at whatever level, will be aware of the mountain of notes and photographs that builds up over the course of a project. Furthermore, they’ll recognise the difficulty of updating, sharing and preserving those vital records. Not to mention the frustration and cost caused by slow, static and temperamental photo printers, the time spent in a dark studio, or, at the end of a long day, laboriously cutting and sticking photos into a bulging lever arch, the weight of which adds to an already heavy collection of set bags.
Continuity Pro harnesses the power and convenience of the iPad to collect, collate, preserve, backup, display, modify and share continuity data in all its forms. All notes and photographs are available immediately and where they’re most needed rather than back at the trailer or production office. This simple app enables standbys to utilise any down time on set to create their continuity notes immediately for instant reference.
A quick snap with the internal camera or a high resolution shot from your digital camera – photographs are easily imported, saved and displayed – and of course, zoom in to ease the process of repeating a set up.
Diarised, searchable pages of linked notes and pictures can be shared via wi-fi or Bluetooth, and the whole day’s work can be safely backed up to iCloud whilst you sleep. Search by set, scene, location – or opt for a quick view to see photos in scene order on one page clearly demonstrating the tonal look of sets throughout the film. All information may be password protected to prevent unauthorised access to sensitive photographs or data.
Imagine what could be achieved with an app specifically designed for your needs. No more losing that vitally annotated call sheet, no more searching for pens or panicking because the correct sheet isn’t in the folder. Photos, notes and references all immediately available, updateable and shareable – that’s Art Department Continuity Pro.

"Apps for Pro Filmmakers" is a curated database of professional filmmaking apps that can help you get a job done a little better or a little faster. This is a regularly updated resource of 400 (and counting) mobile, tablet, watch, and now desktop apps. We only include apps made for and used by film, television, and digital media professionals.
"FWD:labs carries the most complete listing of linked professional apps I know besides of the fragmented Android Market (google play) and the iPhone App Store. I suspect it is a tenuous work to compile and link all proven working apps and much more your site offers. I thank you for sharing such complete list of iPhone and android apps for the cinematographer and the entertainment industry in general. I could not pass the opportunity let know my readers about your meticulous resource."FILMCAST
"[R]idiculously useful compendium"Directors Notes
"I thought [FWD:labs] had put together a useful list when I saw it last year, but that was nothing compared to now. If you're a filmmaker and looking for a little portable help in pre/production/post then chances are you'll find it in the Apps for Cinema Artists. I know I can be a little iPhone-centric when it comes to these things, but you’ll be pleased to know the list is completely platform agnostic."Directors Notes
