The back-bone tool for our film-making is CPM.
It allows users
secure access to a centralised system to 'see' the project unfold.
Usually it's the Director that works with each of the other leaders
ensuring 'the vision' is on-track. This type of black-box approach
carries a greater risk with each passing day and places nearly all the
responsibility on a selected few. Isolated from the bigger picture
(pardon the pun) constructive feedback and ideas may be lost that
could make a good movie great.
Having re-engineered the motion-picture processes and developed a
unique tool (CPM) has led to a greater production visibility.
Producers, Directors, Investors, Production Crew, Writer(s), Editors,
Financial Personnel, and everyone else given secured access to the
relevant areas of the project, can 'see' and understand the
consequence of a decision and take appropriate action accordingly.
