NOTE: This is an organizer for photographers, videographers and other creative people. This app requires your input, setup and some familiarity with lighting.
Shotlist Assist allows you to organize your shots for upcoming shoots. You will be able to create shotlists, lighting diagrams, attach images and export all into Excel. Whether you are sitting at home thinking up the next perfect shoot or find yourself inspired while going through magazines, you will be able to quickly enter in shot info, assign lighting diagrams, enter in GPS info, create presets of your tools such as cameras, lenses, films, etc and much more.
While on location, you will be able to reference images pertaining to categories on the fly at the tap of a button (eyeball) for quick visual reference. The app is very flexible in terms of the data you can create in it. You can create a shotlist that will break down every specific shot via multiple categories you create or you can create an overall category and attach image examples (i.e. a miscellaneous shotlist). The app will also allow you to create presets of any data topic and associate to a shot(s).
All data entered into Shotlist Assist is exportable, including the lighting diagrams, data presets and image examples. This will allow you to consolidate all data into a call sheet via Excel which you then can turn into a PDF, print and distribute.
We are certain that Shotlist Assist will be able to help you on busy photo/film shoots to pre-production sessions. No matter if you are an amateur or a professional, Shotlist Assist will help you ensure you get the most out of your production day.

"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
