(PRWEB) June 7, 2006
Reel Logix, Inc. announces the new 3.3 version of The Reel Production Calendar, the market leading calendar software designed for Film, Television and Live Action productions.
The Reel Production Calendar is the innovative calendar software program designed for managing Pre-Production, Production, and Post Production activities for various departments at the studio and production level.
Randy McGowan, CEO of Reel Logix, had the following to say about the origins of The Reel Production Calendar, the new release and the future of the product.
“When we founded Reel Logix, Inc. in 2002, there was a lot of pressure from within the industry for us to create a new scheduling breakdown program, mostly due to the team’s experience of working on Movie Magic Scheduling, and my history with SSI for many years. Although we seriously considered it, there were several companies already working to address this issue for the industry. After interviewing hundreds of people in production and observing work flow processes, the theme that consistently emerged was the need for a calendaring solution. The Reel Production Calendar was developed and launched out of that need in January, 2004”.
“The program was designed and has evolved to not only address the limitations of traditional calendars, but also has many industry specific features like importing from Movie Magic and EP Scheduling; the ability to auto count weeks for tracking Prep, Shoot, Avid Weeks, and Director’s Edit weeks as well as automatically skip Hiatus weeks” says Philip Robinson, CTO and co-founder. Current users of Reel Production Calendar consistently speak to incredible time saving features that have significantly reduced the number of production hours spent cutting and pasting in traditional calendars.
The new 3.3 release has many new features including improved filtering capabilities, new sharing and collaboration functionality, the ability to auto-skip days off when creating events and the capability to easily generate web calendars for distributed work environments.
Reel Logix plans to continue the practice of incorporating valuable client feedback as new features are added. The team at Reel Logix, Inc is proud to say that this is the eight free update of the software –to existing customers– and plans two additional releases later this year. New feature ideas from current and future users as well as industry partners guarantees that Reel Logix, Inc. will continue to move the software in a very exciting direction.
The Reel Production Calendar is currently being used widely in Film and Television Productions worldwide and is available at http://www.reellogix.com as well as leading industry resellers.
