So, we are just about ready to release a free no strings attached call sheet template that anyone can use. I stress… free and no strings attached… because in my hunt for a call sheet template I found lot of strings attached. Mostly just really crappy call sheets though. Read More…
We just hit 75 private beta testers!!! YAYA!!! And all I have to say is MORE PLEASE!!!
Both more beta testers and more videos like the one above, which just happens to be a video that took my mind off the launch for 3 minutes.
This video reminds me not to take everything so serious and this startup, this industry changing (in my eyes) website, this launch… should all be kept for what it is all about. Having fun making things we love, and laughing while doing it.
Today Aaron called me and I answered with “Your call has been denied, it is your anniversary.” We had a good laugh about that, then talked business a bit “Business business BUSINESS BuSinEss business” and now he is back to his anniversary celebration day. We take Cast and Crew Call very seriously, but we also will laugh and joke about how ridiculous everything is, like how when you fix one thing another thing breaks… it’s kind of funny and we laugh about it but at the end of the day we both have been staying up all night making sure everything gets done and works right.
So… when I get too serious and get caught up in the work… I have to remember… what does the fox say?
Next week we are finally ready to begin private beta. I’ll be inviting mostly close friends on, but anyone waiting on our mailing list also might be asked to help us test.
Our developer is hard at work after a week of hard work… haha… and a 2 hour call last night. Just a few more little things and we will be ready!!! But again, I keep saying that.
So… I know there isn’t much information out there yet. But if you want to be one of the first people to be part of the new way of finding cast and crew… get in line and you probably will get an email asking to be part of our private beta.
Aaron and I talk a lot about how there’s just one more thing to do before we are ready to launch. “After just this one last step we can finally launch” is now a running joke because there is never going to really be one last thing. After our meeting today, we have 29 last things… most of them are bugs or changes required to be done before we begin a private beta. We have a handful of people that have helped us find some of these, thank you all, but we will be needing many more beta testers after these things are all fixed and done.
If you are launching a business and feel discouraged because your idea is so simple, someone else can just come out and start it… Read More…
Hi, I’m Lan Bui. I’m a filmmaker, or more accurately a Director of Photography… I shot my first feature narrative film last year. I also make photographs of people I think are awesome, produce and direct commercials… and now I’m working on making this website/app for people like me. People that make films, short films, commercials, internet fun videos, YouTube shows… pretty much any independent person that wants to do a shoot.
This is Aaron Dieppa. He is an amazing photographer (we have been around the world together on so many shoots) and my partner in Cast and Crew Call, he will mostly be working on the back end stuff so you might not hear from him much… but when you do it will be exciting stuff.
OK… so… the first thing most people might want to know is, what is Cast and Crew Call supposed to be… I think the basic level of what it will be is to help solve one problem I’ve encountered on every shoot I’ve been involved in:
