Anyone who has ever seen a movie will know that many films are shot in Technicolor. This is actually the trade name for a number of film processing techniques, some of which are still in use today. This, however, is not what the Technicolor app focuses on and instead looks at the number of feet of film necessary for a shot, or the amount of memory required for a digital equivalent.

Modern film makers have a great deal of technical matter to handle in their day to day work. For example, some movies are still shot on standard perforated film stock while others are recorded purely in digital media. When it comes time to prepare a budget both types of productions, both film stock or digital, and will need to understand their inventory requirements. The Technicolor app will help both groups perform some basic calculations about memory and stock requirements, but the film makers will still have to have some basic knowledge.

For example, a production shooting ten minutes of footage may need more than the average two hundred feet per two minutes, and the app will help with this math. Alternately, CODEC requirements vary according to the type of digital camera being used, but the app can give good approximations for computer memory needs too.

The Technicolor app is truly unique in the industry and is a wonderfully handy tool for those who find themselves having to discuss the financial and technical issues of any production.

There is no cost for the Technicolor app and any updates will also come entirely free of charge. This app functions with iPod Touch and iPhone devices.

If you are involved in the film or motion picture industry, this is a good app to add to your personal collection of professional tools right away.
