Making a movie is difficult. Much more so than most people know. A finished script is just the first step after which there are many rewarding creative projects as well as tiresome tasks that you wish somebody else could take care of. But on most low-budget and student films there isn’t anybody else. Not even an intern.
Indie Intern helps simplify some of the more tedious tasks so that you can spend your time making movies rather than making spreadsheets. Just import your script (in Final Draft or Fountain format) and Indie Intern will automatically create your production board and call sheets. Any changes you make to scheduling will flow through to everything else. You can then email schedules to your cast and crew from within the program.
Budgeting is another thankless chore for the independent filmmaker. Unfortunately this won’t magically make your budget larger but it helps streamline the process. Nothing kills creativity faster than spending a day staring at figures in a spreadsheet. Don’t let that happen to you.
Indie Intern also aims to make it easy to collaborate with your crew since most independent filmmakers don’t have offices. Included is the ability to create and assign tasks as well as add notes on pretty much anything. You can also upload and store any type of files including scripts, multimedia, and cast, prop and location photos.
One last thing to mention about Indie Intern is the pricing. Instead of spending a lot on pricey desktop software you can subscribe to Indie Intern for as little or as long as you want. On tight indie film budgets it is best to put your limited dollars on screen rather than waste them behind-the-scenes.
