Lighting Designer is a quick and intuitive way to create lighting plots for film, theater, and television. The wide selection of equipment and simple yet powerful interface makes it easier than ever to illustrate and communicate your lighting setups, even when you’re away from your computer.
Perfect for tech scouts, working in a car or on a train, or just choosing the couch over your desk chair! Plus, the iPad is a great presentation tool; take it to set and show your crew exactly what you want.
While expensive drafting programs can take hours to use and years to master, Lighting Designer is an accessible way to plan your next show!

"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
