11:00AM-12:00PM - LightSPEED Electronic Production System:
LightSPEED is a web-based entertainment production management system designed specifically for the film and television industry. It centralizes your production information and provides secure access from your computer, cell phone, or wireless device.
Give your production team the up-to-date information they need to do their jobs and in the process make your production more efficient and responsive. Notify your staff of critical updates - automatically - when changes occur.
LightSPEED provides information security, an intuitive interface, and logistical tools designed with your needs in mind.
LightSPEED's script import system saves hours of work. It breaks the script down into scenes, coding each one with industry standard colors for interior/exterior and time of day. Automatic breakdown is available from Final Draft Tagger, .pdf, and .sex file formats.
LightSPEED also breaks down and categorizes* script elements, helping you sort them into searchable categories, and making your needs for every scene apparent. Elements are categorized as Characters, Extras, Props, Makeup/Hair, Costumes, Set Decorations, Stunts, Special Effects, Vehicles, and more. Later, you can link the story elements to the real-world elements you've selected to play them in the movie.
