Take your shot listing to the next level with Shot Lister for MacOS! Shot Lister is already the only professional shot list & scheduling application. Now on your desktop you can easily create very large shots lists and sync to your mobile device.
Shot Lister revolutionizes the art of shot listing from pre-production to the minute by minute decisions on set. It's designed by experienced filmmakers to deliver the only solution that can build, organize, schedule and share shot lists and shooting schedules digitally.
Shooting a film never goes to plan, now instead of scribbling over your printed out spreadsheet, you can get back on track with a flick of a finger.
Shot Lister comes with TWO options:
SHOT LISTER which is more than capable of handling most indie productions & includes the ability to add hundreds of scenes and thousands of shots, customizable categories & multi-cam support. This is a one time purchase of $39.99 US & all updates are free.
SHOT LISTER PRO is for more complex productions that require specific features. Shot Lister Pro is an optional in-app purchase with an annual subscription of $13.99 US, see below for details.

Ratings and Reviews
An app made by filmmakers not programers?
There’s a lot of passion put into this app and it shows. You can tell it was was made by someone who knows the pressures and pitfalls of everyday fillmaking.
Sadly, it’s also very buggy. Crewsync takes upwards of 5 minutes to sync whenever you upload, sometimes shots just aren’t added when you try to add them and the interface lacks a lot of common sense features you’d expect. Drag and drop, mulitple shot select just isn’t there.
That doesn’t mean this app isn’t worth it. I’m still using it. Currently, there’s just a lot of workarounds. For example, you can’t export shootdays to CSV and there’s minimal control over what information you export to PDF. This leads me to editing my shotlists in a PDF editor.
There's SO MUCH POTENTIAL, it’s frustrating to see it fall short on what seem to be simple features.
Also, if you’re a subscriber to their yearly “pro” subscription, you’re allowed storyboards. Unfortunately Crewsync only allows for a limited amount of storyboards to be synced. If you’re in any kind of professional environment that’s simply not acceptable. For me that might be what causes the sync to take so long. But, really, I only have a dozen or so boards loaded into the app right now.
The website presenting their product is very slick, let’s just hope they can bring the program's UI up to the same standard.
Still, if you can put up with the bugs, I’d recommend it.

Please update to version 1.8 which allows faster uploading of larger files with Storyboards along with a general improvements and bug fixes.
No Filmmaker should be without this App
I’ve had the iPad version for a while and I’ve been waiting for it on my Mac. I love making professional shot list with this app. But the schuedling portion is invaluable. You will know excatly how long your shoot will be to the minute. Twice, this app has saved me and my production. On one occasion, I was shooting a simple short film which I estimated would take one full day. After using the app I realized it was a three day shoot. Another time, I had eleven hours to shoot nine scenes, Because of this app, I finished right on time and looked like a genious to my cast and crew. I haven't experieced any crashes or other issues. I could not recommend this app any higher. I love it. It does it’s job and more.

We appreciate the support, especially from our long term iOS users. Sounds like it's really helping you with accurate estimates in prep which translates into less stressful shoot days.
I Love this App !
The IOS version is great, but the MacOS version became a must for me, becuase I knew taking on a Feature film project would be larger than my previous projects, and I needed to navigate around the App at a faster pace. I decide to try the MacOs version, and I must admit this gave me flexibility and speed. The layout on this version is a hell of alot faster to navigate around on than the IOS version, especially with the hotkeys feature. Also Customer Support was awesome in helping me transition my "Pro feature" to the Mac version. I apreciate the fast communication!

Thanks for taking the leap to macOS - it was our most frequent request after we released on iOS and for features or longer length short films, it really comes into its own.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
