My lightweight production office

It's time to have less on your mind. Yamdu is a web application combining the individual tools for all departments and stages of a film production. Yamdu is the central platform for all crew members, providing information in a fast, simple and efficient way. Make the most of your data and ensure efficient teamwork. Save time and effort by avoiding redundancies and mistakes and keep an eye on all of your projects. Master your film production management with Yamdu.

New favorite tools for your production!

Customize your feature set

Yamdu’s features create a harmonized workflow for each production stage, from script development and pre-production all the way through to post-production. All features are always included in your subscription. Additionally, you can tailor the feature set to your needs. You don’t need the costume or production design department during the production of an animation? Your documentary doesn’t require a break-down? No problem. Just deactivate the tools you don't need for a specific project.

everything

as it happens.

More control & better overview

Yamdu is your digital production office; everyone and everything together in one cloud. Manage your daily tasks and appointments or see what your colleagues are currently discussing. Yamdu offers a fast, structured overview in order to maximize efficient co-operation and improve the quality of communication between team members. Collaborate, communicate and delegate with Yamdu.

“Collaborative work in productions and teams clustered over different locations and cities is a tough process. But Yamdu together with ARRI Webgate brings everyone and every media close together!”

— Marc Schwellenbach, Head of Postproduction, UFA Serial Drama, Germany

More time for creativity

Organise your daily tasks with customizable tools for all creative departments. The costume, production design, makeup, location scouting and casting departments are always linked to the current and latest version of scenes, the break-down, the call sheet and the shooting schedule. This ensures you always get the correct information about the current DOODs (day-out-of-days). Avoid confusion, duplication of effort and endless lists and emails; with Yamdu, everyone can focus on the information that really matters.

“Very successful production period! This was made possible in no small part through the use of Yamdu which, although we came to it quite late in pre-production, was an invaluable resource in allowing us to organise and co-ordinate multiple departments and dozens of cast and crew members across the film. We found it especially useful in organising our casting and our locations, along with some planning and comms.”

— Nick Woolgar, Producer, The Haunted Hotel, United Kingdom

We collaborate.

More efficiently

than ever.

One tool for unlimited users!

Add the entire crew. Yamdu provides a central platform for all essential information and encourages collaboration. Whether you are commenting on a new development, managing important tasks or making a big announcement: Everything happens within Yamdu. File sharing and communication made easier than ever before.

"Movie making involves complex and overarching teamwork. The communication via e-mail is obsolete and dates back to the last century. When someone has the wrong production plan, an old draft of the script or an incomplete call sheet on him, that’s when nothing can beat Yamdu. In addition to that there are controlling features fantastic to use for executive producers. It’s a pleasure to watch Yamdu constantly grow and become a powerful tool for cinema and TV movies."

— Oliver Schündler, CEO & Producer, Lucky Bird Pictures, Germany

Argh!

Whom did we cast last time?

Less on your mind with your database

Yamdu is a self-generating database. From the first shared ideas in pre-production to the completion of the project, a production team create thousands of records. Your individual company database allows you to save all the key information from past projects. Crew members, actors, agencies, locations and clients can be used again and again during any of your company’s future projects. The more you work with Yamdu, the more time Yamdu will save for you.

“With Yamdu our crews see themselves as one team working for one goal. So it's much more than just a production tool, it's a great motivation tool as well!”

— Andreas Simon, CEO & Producer, GAP Films, Germany

Schedule updated.

Everyone informed.

Awesome!

Handle all of your planning with Yamdu and profit from Yamdu’s convenient tools and features. From quick script import to the automatic writing of break-downs, from the production planning and shooting schedule to the pre-written call sheets: Everything happens in a shared, integrated workflow. Update the entire crew or individual crew members on changes with just one click. With Yamdu’s convenient mailing system, you can also distribute documents from other applications you use.

„Our entire team loves Yamdu. It has a comprehensive set of features and it's easy for anyone to jump in and learn the software.“

— Micah Haughey, Producer, Silver Rose Entertainment, USA

of office!

Easy access on mobile devices

It’s already late and the new file version has not arrived yet? No problem. Whatever you need to do, Yamdu is there to help no matter the time or place. Due to our responsive design you can access Yamdu on any smartphone or tablet on all the major browsers. You can check out what’s happening and comment on it or forward data and information from Yamdu to your clients and partners. You are much more independent and efficient than before thanks to the mobile accessibility of Yamdu.

Perfect for series

When it comes to serial productions, data management is an even bigger challenge. Yamdu offers unique features, like the ability to tag and select episodes and shooting blocks in order to see only what you are working on at the moment. The tagging of objects and files is carried out via the script import based on the episodes. Transform every individual project into a pilot episode of a series and turn your project into a whole season with just one click. As the universe of your plot grows, so does your structured knowledge database in Yamdu.

The alternative to paper

Have you ever calculated how many reams of paper and ink cartridges you use during a production? Of course there are some things you will want to print out, but does every small change within a project have to result in new print-outs of staff lists, shooting schedules or break-downs? By using Yamdu you save money and help the environment at the same time.

We are there for you

Behind every software there are real people. We understand how difficult it can be to convince teams to use new workflows. Our extensive tutorials and introductions are adjusted to the specific requirements of departments to help convey the most important information to your team in a clear and compact way. Let your crew focus on the things relevant to them. Getting you and your team started as smoothly as possible is key for us.
