Our goal at ShotOnWhat? is to create the largest collection of technical information that exists for Film & Television productions. If it has been seen on TV or shown in a theater, we would like to gather as much technical information as possible about the cameras, gear, post, sound, VFX and any other associated elements or processes, notes and trivia from the production. We are making the information searchable, cross referencing it a bit, and creating some trending to observe long term shifts in technology.
Great idea you say? Well, it can only happen with your help! It only takes a few moments to add your technical information to ShotOnWhat?.
Just find or add the name of the movie or TV show and fill in as much information as you can. Over time, as other crew members also submit information on their craft, your production’s information will start to take on a more informative profile enabling current and future generations to study and enjoy the film-makers’ process.
We not only want to gather current productions from the digital age, but are seeking archive information on all productions: notably, all the classic films from the beginning of film-making. We want to preserve and make accessible this information. We hope that over time this repository of technical and equipment data will be useful for research and to students of the entertainment industry and it’s production history. But we will need vast amounts of data for this to be truly effective.
We are adding new titles daily. Please add yours or feel free to update an existing title. As we continue to add categories and gear to the lists, we are always interested in your thoughts and ideas. Are we missing something? Maybe there are other ways of doing/presenting something, or perhaps there is something else you would like to see. Just send us a note, or add this information in the Additional Information Area in the AddInfo form.
We will be reviewing data and adding features regularly.
