Limecraft took the stage at this year’s Media Tech Hub Conference for a joint presentation with Final Draft, Yamdu, and Lockit Network. The conference took place in the Babelsberg Film Studios, located in Potsdam-Babelsberg outside Berlin, Germany. A fantastic venue where a lot of film history has been written, as it is the second oldest large-size film studio in the world only preceded by the Danish Nordisk Film (est. 1906), producing films since 1912.

During the presentation, we demonstrated the ease of use of an integrated workflow, whereby information on a script made in Final Draft is processed by Yamdu for planning and pre-production, by Lockit Network which can thereby add technical production data to the shots and scenes. When the data coming from these 3 sources are reconciled for post-production by Limecraft, everyone involved on the team gets unprecedented accessibility and the editors get a head-start.

Key takeaways

  • 90% of the valuable metadata is part of the script. If it is not in the script, it is not important.
  • By processing and breaking down the script, Yamdu automates 75% of the manual work of the planners. Errors are avoided. Implementing changes becomes much easier.
  • The script is used as valuable context by Lockit Network to further enrich scenes with shot information and technical metadata from the cameras.
  • By blending the 3 sources of data, Limecraft users see the takes grouped per shot and per scene and they can efficiently search for the right fragment in thousands of files
  • By exposing the Limecraft player in Yamdu, pre-production staff can properly follow up without leaving their application
