ShotOnWhat The New Technical Version of IMDb
Is the technical section of IMDb never up to scratch? New website ShotOnWhat? is attempting the amighty task of compiling all the technical data of all the films ever. Compiling information such as what cameras, lenses, editing system, codecs and many more details, ShotOnWhat? sounds and looks like an mission and a half.
While IMDb has a lot of information regarding cast, the technical information is hidden in it’s fussy layout and behind several clicks and when you do find the section, the information just isn’t there.
What are they actually trying to achieve? I’ll let them explain for themselves:
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.
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.
ShotOnWhat needs contributors to input the data for them. Mostly because you filmmakers know what your own film’s made with. What do you think? Is this a useful resource for filmmakers? Can you see yourself using this instead of IMDb?
