Film Making App Highlight: Shot Lister

By Anthony Thurston on May 20th 2013

Are you a Filmmaker? Are you tired of constantly needing to write down shot lists on paper and scribbling around them as you need to make changes? Well then you need to check out this app, it is called Shot Lister and it is going to save you a lot of time.


At its basic level Shot Lister gives you a virtual shot list that you can see on your iOS device and allows you to make changes on the fly. This is a really convenient and quite useful tool for any filmmaker looking to be more organized on set. Shot Lister doesn’t stop there though, it also comes with this live mode that tracks your day and lets you know if you are on time or running behind on your day of shooting.

Currently the app is only available on iOS, but there are plans to expand to Android and then to Desktops in the future. If you have an iOS device and would like to learn more you can check out their website or download the app from the Apple App store.

The guys over at Film Riot recently did an interview with the creator of Shot Lister, its a great interview and offers some great insight into the story behind the app, how it  is used, the future of the app, and much more. You can check out the interview below…

    Great review! I’ve been using shot lister for a few months but writing each new shot becomes tedious after 20 different shots. For the past few weeks I’ve been using Action Pro and I like almost everything about it I like the fact that the shot lists are automatically generated for you based on your storyboards, really awesome stuff
