PostTracker

Post Production Tracking and Collaboration Template

I created this app to track all of my post production tasks for a documentary I was editing.  It mushroomed into what you see below.   I'm providing this to you for free, as a way of giving back to the post-production community.  The app runs inside of Notion, so you need to download Notion first, which is free and works on Mac and Windows.

Cameras

When you start your edit, you need to know exactly all the specs of your footage, what camera it was shot with, what color space, how the audio was captured, was it scratch or main audio and more.

Stock Media

Most films, especially documentaries, require a lot of stock footage, including photos, video, motion graphics, SFX, and more.   Track all your stock media sites here.
