    "Been using this highly useful software for years!"

    October 24, 2012   |   By BugzyDr

    Version: Directors NoteBook SA (Stand Alone) 4.5

    Pros

    It's really the only shot list software for professional directors. I also started teaching a film making class, and it's an invaluable tool for students as well.

    Cons

    It would be nice if it were a bit cheaper

    "Keeps me on point and helps prep my my team!"

    October 24, 2012   |   By tvsmashin

    Version: Directors NoteBook SA (Stand Alone) 4.5

    Pros

    With all the logistics prepared and neatly organized on paper you get the peace of mind that you haven't forgotten anything. For me this means I'm more in the moment and creative on set.

    It also helps communicate your vision to your team so that they can be better prepared.

    Cons

    The only con is that it doesn't telepathically read my mind. I still have to type out my shots, but other than that it works great!

    Summary

    While it is made for TV Directors, it works great for any kind of production. On one job the producer took a look at my printed out project and said I was the most prepared music video director he has ever worked with... and this guy has worked with some really great music video directors. The program helps you make note of every last detail so that you're prepared to succeed.

    "Getting better..."

    December 11, 2003   |   By Lewis Carnelian 1999

    Version: Directors NoteBook SA 1.6.0b

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This suite of Filemaker Pro templates is getting a bit better. There are still major problems with it's functionality. The developer has a good idea, he just needs to find himself an OSX programmer and write it in native code. It would cost a bit but it would make this 'app' absuolutely indespensible. There are still problems with saving, the display, the print dialogue box etc... c'mon man... make this native, make this native, make this native...

    "Thoughts from someone in the industry..."

    October 12, 2003   |   By ContentCreator

    Version: Directors NoteBook SA 1.6.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This app really does address the void of useful softeware in this industry. Built off of Filemaker does ensure a level of stability and cross platform user experience. If you are familiar with Filemaker then learning this app is a snap. And if not, just a little extra time and you will have things falling into place nicely. The developer does seem very interested in users feedback and takes suggestions seriously. Which is rare these days. It IS worth checking out, despite some people's obvious misinformation.

    "Kicks Ass"

    October 10, 2003   |   By CGbur

    Version: Directors NoteBook SA 1.6.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    As a working director in the commercial industry I have found this to be the only software that really does what I need. Again this newest upgrade only makes this product more useful. The developer is fast to respond and has added features that I've requested. Being built on the solid foundation of Filemaker allows me to use the software on my Mac as a stand alone and on Windows machines that have FileMaker with no difference in the way it works. Keep it up.

    "This is bad..."

    October 07, 2003   |   By Lewis Carnelian 1999

    Version: Directors NoteBook SA 1.6.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    The commercials and film industry is screaming out for a good application to assist directors collect their thoughts and ideas in one place. Directors Notebook is such a good idea that is executed so badly. It's just awful to use. The interface is bad, the type looks bad, the preview pages don't work, it is clunky. It is worse than tedious to use. And it is a complete rip-off! This type of software needs to be written in native code not as a filemaker file. Avoid this at all costs.
