Features Overview

Meet Gorilla’s little cousin! Designed for low budget projects, web content providers and student or beginner filmmakers, Chimpanzee offers film scheduling and budgeting features at an affordable price.

With Chimpanzee, you can break down your screenplay into scenes, manage characters, props & other scene elements, keep info on actors and crew and create shoot days, shot lists and storyboards. Use Chimpanzee’s Import Screenplay feature to auto-create your scenes and import elements (characters, props, etc.) from your tagged screenplay.

When you’re ready for budgeting, choose from a variety of Chimpanzee’s budget templates or create your own, and easily link your budget to scheduling elements such as actors, crew and props.

Chimpanzee comes with over a dozen reports including scheduling breakdown summaries, call sheets, prop lists and shot lists and budget topsheet, account and detail reports.
