Developer's Description

First Android Film Stock Calculator

This is a stock Calculator tool for people working in the film business, like Clapper Loaders, Assistent Camera, Continuity and even for Cinematographers who are interested in how much cans of film they will need.

Its major goal is it to help filmmakers concentrate more in doing movies and not in calculating.

It can handle all common varieties of cinema stock formats:
Super and Normal 8mm
35mm 2,3,4 Perf
ProRes422 (Proxy)
ProRes422 (LT)

Also it’s able to handle different framerates and shooting ratios.
The New Version as well includes a Stopwatch that counts both time and length so you always know what’s on the reel without needing a calculator or watch anymore.

To change the format between feet and meter just press the length counter.
Please feel free to leave comments and suggestions, so I can make this app better.

"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."
"[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
Pretty much every iPhone or Android App you'll ever need/want if you're a filmmaker
