What can you use the app for?

Edictive App is a film production management tool that works on the cloud. Users can handle organizational tasks and put together a powerful product team using the application. Pre-production tools let the user find and hire crew and talent and scout out potential filming locations. Archives can be established so the user can save notes for later. The production phase is also covered with scheduling features, storyboards, tasks and milestones. The application is designed to allow users to collaborate so all relevant individuals can get involved even if they are not in the same room or on the set. Edictive App also offers management for post-production and distribution with digital media collection organization and distribution channel tracking.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Edictive App has received a few mentions on websites however it has not yet seen significant popularity. The tools included aren’t geared towards a general audience. The features included cater to those who manage or are involved in film production. The application is also still in closed beta so the public has not yet had the opportunity to apply the tools included to their production efforts.

What are the differences to other apps?

Edictive App promises to offer many attractive features that make it appealing to anyone involved in film production. Specialization is what really makes this application appealing. Few online services focus on every step of the process, from pre-production through filming and distribution. Users can organize each phase in one place and keep collaborators in the loop without wasting time and money on travel for face to face meetings.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Edictive features a laid back interface that still looks professional. Everything is neatly organized so users can quickly access images, notes and other vital information. Embedded maps, talent and crew profiles and convenient charts let the user stay in control as they guide the production process. The interface includes hints of personality without going overboard and becoming a distraction for the user.

How does the registration process work?

New users will find a large field presented right at the center of the Edictive homepage. Uses can enter their email address then click the green “I want to try!” button to the right. A green notification bar appears above the field to let the user know that they will receive a personal invitation once the site is out of private beta. An email with the same message is also sent to the user’s inbox. New users cannot access the application until the invitation is received.

What does it cost to use the application?

Anyone can submit their email address to receive an invitation when Edictive App becomes publically available. There is no fee for doing so and the user isn’t asked to commit to a subscription or purchase. The site doesn’t share any details regarding cost. There are also no notes stating that the application will be completely free, either. More details will most likely be supplied as official release nears.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Edictive App is an appealing tool for anyone involved in film production. Users can organize every step in the process. The application offers a diverse collection of tools that start with pre-production and works through filming all the way to distribution. The jury is still out on the overall cost and value of the application, but so far is promises to deliver many practical tools that can streamline the film production process.
