Stop wasting time scribbling over paper shot lists when time matters most. Now you can make your day, the easy way.

SHOT LISTER comes with all the features you will need to Shot List and build a comprehensive schedule for your shoot for free. Extra professional features require a Pro subscription.

The only software available to easily create a shooting schedule on a shot by shot & minute by minute basis. Experience the truly ground breaking “Live mode” to see exactly how you are doing to the minute and re-organize the day in a matter of seconds. Shot Lister shows you exactly how many minutes ahead or behind you are, so you don’t have to do math while you shoot.

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.

Every change you make is instantly synced on all your devices, and Shot Lister can continue to keep working offline if you lose connectivity in a remote location, then sync all changes when you regain connectivity.

Every project & director is different, so with Shot Lister you can customize & order every category to your own needs. Re-name the user categories 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.

SHOT LISTER PRO is an auto-renewing subscription service that offers advanced features to optimize the way you work. When you make the jump to Shot Lister Pro, here’s what you get across all of your devices.

Enjoy unlimited projects on your devices at one time.

Sync your project with other collaborators. Keep the entire crew up to date live. Allow multiple units to be making changes simultaneous. Also manage crew privileges as “view only” or “view and edit” to share authorship with collaborators.

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.
A must have for any television series. Import the script for your next episode into your existing project and schedule scenes from different episodes that share locations, cast or other commonalities on the same day.

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

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

Shot Lister Pro has 1 Month and 12 Month subscription options. New Pro users are offered a 14-day free trial. After the free trial period you will be automatically renewed to the current subscription price which you can cancel at any time.

Subscriptions are what allow us to continue to build new features for Shot Lister, so thank you!

What’s New

Version 5.6

This time, we rebuilt how live mode handles clashes between shots and pinned items, added undo and redo support, improved sunrise and sunset times for night shoots, and much more.

Now, if you have a shot that clashes with a pinned item (like lunch), our new feature splits the shot and shows you how much time you have before lunch and how much time you'll likely need to finish things afterward; it is also now possible to start a pinned item early. Once you start it, we'll reflow everything to match the new schedule, keeping your shoot day running smoothly.

We (finally!) added full undo and redo support to prep mode. You can undo and redo any change to your shots, shot order, cast, scenes, or episodes.

We'll automatically calculate the sunrise times if you give your shoot day a location. We'll automatically show the sunrise for the next morning for a night shoot. As part of those changes, we've also added support for locations without sunrise or sunset, just in case any of you have any upcoming shoots at the Arctic Circle.

Cannot migrate to 5.0! (FIXED)

I have tried on several devices to migrate to the new Shotlister but the app crashes. I have several projects I do not want to lose but it crashes when I try to migrate them. Fix it.

Not sure what the issue was but the developers reached out and we got it all working properly. Thank you for the help!

Developer Response ,

Long time user & continue to be

Been using the app for years as I have a film production company and we create films nearly monthly. We tell everyone about the app. *sponsor us 😅* Now with the update, super excited and the app support has been so responsive! Look forward to more years with Shotlister.
