(Boulder, Colorado--August 22, 2012) Mobile Imagination LLC today announced it has released doddlePRO 3.0, the Company’s online, collaborative call sheet and planning solution for production planning and logistics management.
With the release of doddlePRO 3.0, production managers who use doddlePRO Online can now drag and drop each call sheet section, department, and participant in the precise order they wish to display for distribution. Custom visual changes will be synced and delivered via instantly created branded PDF call sheets, as well as through the dynamic digital call sheets that are received and viewable on the free doddle and enhanced doddlePRO iTunes apps.
Additionally in doddlePRO 3.0, a refreshed Mobile Contacts feature adds a fresh, clean new look and elevates all free and premium content, map views and other valuable, relevant information into a contacts’ profile. This new enhancement saves time and eliminates the need for users to drill down to find more information about a resource.
The doddlePRO mobile app for IOS also allows for the creation, editing, and distribution of call sheets, providing users with instantly refreshed weather and lighting conditions, turn by turn directions to locations and emergency resources, multiple communication options with other participants, GPS marking for location scouting, instant photo add to enhance locations, schedule items, talent, and more.
Since its introduction at the Sundance Film Festival in 2011, doddlePRO and its accompanying online production guide, doddle, has quickly grown in popularity among indie filmmakers as a necessary tool for planning productions under tight budgets and with scarce resources. The professional television production community worldwide has also taken notice and is embracing doddlePRO as their new hub for all facets of production planning and logistics management.
To date, production companies have used doddlePRO to manage the logistics of major television productions, such as EXTRA; commercials and promos for Toyota, NASCAR, NBC’s The Voice, TaylorMade golf shoes, and for the New York Knicks; stage productions like Billy Elliot; by entrants in the 48 Hour Film Festival; and at media production companies like Manhattan Place Entertainment. Additionally, doddlePRO is used by 5 Creative/Channel 5 UK to produce Big Brother UK, and is in trials at the BBC Scotland and is being considered for company-wide deployment.
