Filmmaking assistant for pre- and post-production.
Gorilla is a suite of software tools designed to assist the creative individual in making a film, or a video. From pre-production through production to post-production, Gorilla contains everything the filmmaker or videomaker needs to make a movie. Let's start with your character list. Input them all into Gorilla and start attaching possible actors to the characters, complete with photos. Then work on your crew list. When you are done with that you need to break down the script. Then schedule your shoot days, set call-times, enter your props, and wardrobe and special effects. When you are done you can print out reports and call sheets.
Ready for your budget? Enter the Budgeting module and start entering numbers. When you are done scheduling and budgeting your project, move on to figuring out how much money you are going to make using the Distribution-of-Profits module. Gorilla also has a complete calendar and datebook to enter your location scouts, rehearsal schedules with your actors, and other meetings. When you are ready for post, you can enter all your scene notes in the Editing/Scene Notes module. And when you are ready to submit to film festivals, enter the Film Festival module to view and enter hundreds of festivals all over the world. Well, it might not be "everything" but is sure is a hell of a lot!
Who designed it? Filmmakers, of course! Aaton Cohen-Sitt decided it was time to make a film and he needed something to help him put it all together. Why use Excel for a budget, Word for a character list, and a contact manager software for contacts? He decided to design a single, complete, seamless program which makes it a snap to get all your resources with a couple of keystrokes -- hence Gorilla!
