Softwares for Media & Entertainment

  • Sharebar

Summary

Project management tools are pretty new for the entertainment industry and in many other industries. Since the introduction of MS Project, many other companies have been creating other products with similar functionalities. Some have succeed, others have failed. On the Internet, we can find many free or license softwares for all type businesses and budgets. Most of them do not answer the need of a production company or postproduction facilities because major changes need to be made to the existing software or you need 3, 4 or 5 different products to start having the feeling of tracking your production. Lack of customization options is also a reason for not buying an off the shelf product.

We can divide the project management industry (for entertainment) in 4 main sectors:

1- Assets management Definition: Assets management is a tool to help studios manage their content, files & physical assets.

2- Project management: Definition: Project management mainly looks over time schedules & time tracking.

3- Client management: Definition: Client management looks over client demands and changes.

4- Social Networking: Definition: Create networks and publish artists and company work & reels.
