Creative workflow,
not Paper Work Purgatory.

Film production requires managing major amounts of data from scripts, actors, crew, equipment, shots, location, schedules, budgets, wardrobe, props, to tracking audio and video files. Oh, and somewhere you need to capture those inspirational ideas, and communicate them to your team. (Who hasn’t said “I forgot to...!”)

This kind of tedium is a misuse of creative energy. So creatives assign it to others or they wing it without those creative gems at their fingertips. And their film, and everyone associated with it, suffers.

What if you could leverage the way you work creatively to auto-magically put it all together for you?

That’s what EZIndie does for your film!
