Shooting a film never goes to plan. Don’t scribble over a printed out spreadsheet any longer. Now you can make your day, with a flick of a finger.

SHOT LISTER iOS is free, and comes with all the features you will need to Shot List and build a comprehensive schedule for your shoot. The free version is limited to two projects at one time.

Easily organize & store hundreds of scenes & thousands of shots with the flick of a finger. We support scene letter revisions, 1/8 page counts, "i" and "o" exclusion & cast breakdown tracking. All to fit a variety of professional workflows.

The only software available to easily create a shooting schedule on a shot by shot & minute by minute basis. Rearrange scenes in Stripboard view & easily check what is yet to be shot or scheduled.

Experience the truly ground breaking “Live” production mode to see exactly how you are doing to the minute & re-organize the day in a matter of seconds. Shot Lister shows you exactly how many minutes ahead or behind you are.

Every project & director is different, customize & order every category to your own needs. Re-name the user category for specific uses like tracking props or wardrobe. Customize the Lens and Gear list to fit your package.

Assign shots to different cameras & group them together to be shot simultaneously. Supports up to 26 cameras.

Build shot lists in Excel or Numbers using our website templates then import directly into Shot Lister.

Export beautifully formatted PDFs or the entire Shot Lister project file (SHL) via Dropbox or email. Also export a CSV to continue to work on your desktop.

SHOT LISTER PRO is a in-app subscription for more complex productions that require more professional features.

Enjoy unlimited projects on your iOS device at one time.

Import Final Draft or Fountain scripts & let Shot Lister instantly build a project, generating all the scene meta data & cast list to save time. Convert Celtx to Fountain to import.

Add Storyboards to every shot & display full screen in Storyboard Theatre. View your plan, see which boards are left to be shot in Shooting or Scene order.

In the time it takes to tap a finger, circle the best takes & export the data in SHL or PDF.

PRO is an optional in-app purchase with 1, 3 & 12 month options & gives access to the features marked (PRO) above. The subscription is charged to your Apple ID, and automatically renews. The subscription can be canceled up to 24 hours before the renewal date in your Apple ID settings.

Mr. Mateo ,

Great potential

Update: latest version of the app is definitely improved and the developer seems to earnestly be working hard at making this app amazing. I’m sticking with it and would encourage others to get behind a great developer that listens.

Keep coming back to this app because I love the concept, unfortunately it fails in the implementation category. Syncing for example is really rough. Sometime sync works, but more often projects fail to sync or duplicate. Signing in and out sometimes resolves the issue, but not always. If this worked as advertised, reliably, it would be amazing.

Thanks for taking the time to update your review. We are filmmakers ourselves and appreciate feedback so we can keep improving Shot Lister across all our platforms.

Decent but lack some basic options

We tried it on a film shoot and it was a bit of a headache to actually use it right due to the fact at day of filming things can go a bit off planned and so sometimes you will need to add shots or adjust, when there are multiple cameras involved.

The inconsistently sections (some areas requiere you to save to continue others simple using cancel) makes it a bit hard to follow through.

And when there are good takes, the circle takes option lack the ability to add additional notes (about these good takes) make it a need to jog info down to paper and then that means it requieres some combination of tablet and paper.

It's not bad but it's just felt incomplete. I will try it for another simple filming and will see.

Update. After three weeks of trying to use it on our feature film shoot. We decided not to continue using it. It's too time confusing while on set when there's a readjustment of the shot list or need to make additional shot list. Not to mention the limited tools to make it more intuitive. So l have cancelled my yearly subscription and decided leave this app alone.

If you use multiple cameras this can become extremely difficult to use.

Great ideas but when in real environment with script supervisor, it's more headache to make it work than to use pen and pencil.

Amazing App! Helps sail the production process smoothly!

I love this app. I have really bad OCD and this helps me stay organized through the entire production process. Also stay in sync with my crew and it has such advanced features that it is so worth the money. They used to have a version for the Apple Watch that I would love to see back, but that’s because I use the Apple Watch often, probably more than my iPhone. That’s just me though. Or is it? Anyway, software is solid and really helps in organization and execution. Get it, you won’t regret it!

Happy to hear you've found Shot Lister so helpful and yes, Apple Watch is still on our To Do list!
