Small film production companies often have ongoing problems with the organizational side of their projects. For one project, we showed how Sugar could provide an easy and cost-effective solution for those issues. W-Systems created a set of custom modules in Module Builder to help coordinate the resources for projects. These modules are:
- Film Project (the central module)
- Media Storage
- Shoot Days
For each project, the film producer is able to use Sugar to organize all the resources for their film. The relationships created between the modules allow a producer to see the right level of details for the full production or on a per module basis. They can see all the resources needed for a project by looking at the detail view for the Film Project in addition to all the resources used for one particular shoot day. They also have the ability to see what Shoot Days specific pieces of equipment will be needed.
