About Shot Lister

Shot Lister is the only truly professional shot list & scheduling app. Take that crumpled piece of paper out of your back pocket & touch the digital future of shot listing.

Shot Lister revolutionizes the art of shot listing from pre-production to the minute by minute decisions on set. It's designed by experienced filmmakers to deliver the only solution that can build, organize, schedule and share shot lists and shooting schedules digitally.

Shooting a film never goes to plan, now instead of scribbling over your printed out spreadsheet, you can get back on track with a flick of a finger.

Shot Lister comes with TWO options:

SHOT LISTER which is more than capable of handling most indie productions & includes the ability to add hundreds of scenes and thousands of shots, customizable categories & multi-cam support. This is a one time purchase of $13.99USD & all updates are free.

SHOT LISTER PRO is for more complex productions that require specific features which are more expensive to build. These include the ability to import scripts, add storyboards, circle takes & sync files. Shot Lister Pro is an optional in-app purchase with an annual subscription of $13.99USD, which can be cancelled at anytime. Subscribers really help us bring new features much sooner for both Shot Lister & Shot Lister Pro.
