Variety Insight has announced a partnership with ScriptNoted, a cloud service for sharing comments and information about screenplays. Starting in November, users of the ScriptNoted project development platform will be able to directly access Variety Insight’s data and analysis tools.
Producers, managers, agents and production companies and studios that subscribe to both Variety Insight and ScriptNoted will be able to use the two companies’ data and workflow management to help them better evaluate and develop scripts for film, television, digital or commercial.
“We are committed to making Variety’s paid industry data and analysis available wherever a compelling business application for it exists,” said Variety Insight president Mark Hoebich. “ScriptNoted provides us with an exciting new conduit, placing our film and television project insights seamlessly in the context of next-generation, cloud-based development workflow.”
ScriptNoted provides a secure, cloud-based way to share feedback about screenplays, with a responsive mobile experience to keep track of and get feedback on works in progress, especially for projects that spend months or years in the development process.
“In the Entertainment & Media industry, perhaps more so than others, knowledge is power,” said Christopher Brenchley, co-founder and CEO of ScriptNoted. “Enabling our subscribers to seamlessly access Variety Insight data and analysis to inform their development work has the potential to significantly enhance the productivity and ultimately, profitability, of their projects.”
Users will be able to connect to their Variety Insight accounts directly through the ScriptNoted interface to access the Variety Insight database of industry contacts, project updates and industry alerts.
