Gracenote, a Nielsen company, has announced the availability of Studio System Projects, a new enterprise-level collaboration and project management platform designed to help TV networks, Hollywood studios and other content creators streamline the development process and deliver more commercially and critically successful entertainment offerings. This new suite of Web-based tools allows internal teams to efficiently manage the creation of TV shows and movies from story ideation all the way through production and final release.
Studio System Projects provides content creators a secure, enterprise-grade platform to improve organisation, collaboration and productivity. Users can create their own custom project records to serve as a centralised store for all related documents and materials tied to the project; from script drafts, storyboards and concept art, to casting videos and detailed tracking notes. Additionally, users can attach talent to projects and track them as credits or participants. Through list building and sharing features, users can collaboratively select candidates and access full profile details, as well as talent representation information from the underlying Studio System database.
“The entertainment industry has lagged other industries in terms of access to integrated tools and data enabling better business decision-making and project management,” said Simon Adams, General Manager of Gracenote. “The next evolution of Studio System brings content creators a platform delivering much needed collaboration and workflow capabilities on top of the industry’s most trusted entertainment information database. By providing modern tools and a secure environment to replace disconnected solutions, Studio System Projects allows Hollywood to maximise creativity, accelerate development and produce that next big hit.”
