You are a costume designer and need to handle your staff and costumes more efficiently? Being a production software designed for every crew member, Yamdu offers specialized functions for the most important departments, such as costume design.
No matter if you do the script breakdowns yourself or someone at the production office does and you just need to revise them, you can always do so working with the master breakdown in Yamdu. By doing the breakdown of the script, Yamdu automatically creates objects for the costumes needed, already linked to the roles, actors and actresses, scenes and shooting days. The closer you come to production, the more information Yamdu will provide you automatically based upon the other sections within Yamdu like Scheduling, Casting, etc. You can easily upload new sketches or photos to the designated objects.
Let us illustrate the Yamdu workflow with an example: You happen to be on a flea market or at a mall or some rental store and find a dress that you like. So, just take a photo with your cell phone and upload it using the Yamdu app within seconds. Instead of having some unstructured pool of data, you can directly attach the photo to a certain costume for a role. You are even able to discuss it first, privately within your department. All data is only accessible to your staff first. After the discussion, you are able to publish your suggestion and hereby show it to the producer or DoP. They can have a look and comment using any internet device. There are dozens of possibilities, but you can always be sure, they will see it and are able to say what they are thinking before the first day of shooting.
With Yamdu you can print lists, see day-out-of-days, sort by role, costume, scene, inventory, whatever you like. You and your department will always keep track of what is needed, where the costume comes from and where it has to be returned to. By the way: If a role is finally casted or anything changes concerning the cast, you will be one of the first people to know and get a hand of information like dimensions or attached costumes and scenes, since your department will automatically be informed by Yamdu.
