Maybe the script is still not in ready to be shot, the questions for locations already arise. With the all-in-one, cloud-based solution Yamdu you can easily structure dozens, hundreds or thousands of suggestions you might have. No matter if it is just a general online search, photos from your scouting, or a direct link to a film commission’s database that is cooperating with Yamdu, you will see how easy it is.

Starting with the breakdown of a script, each motif is automatically created as an object within the locations tool. Ready to be filled with your suggestions. A director, DoP, production designer or anyone else can comment it immediately. And maybe, if everyone thinks it’s perfect, your sound recordist might ask about how close that railway in the background actually is. The earlier you share, the less surprises might occur.

Keep track on contact persons, hold days and much more. Once you have entered the address of a location, it will be automatically re-used in other functions, like the call sheet tool to provide maps and directions. And maybe you are the director or DoP and you are wandering around on a (rare) free day finding that awesome location you want to share. Just use the mobile app and do it. Your photo can be uploaded to the relevant motif-object and your crew members will be informed to take a look.

So just try for free and evolve to simplicity.
