Why People Love WattWenn®
What an outstanding program! I've used MMS since it first came out in the late 80's and spent over 2 decades working as a 1st AD on feature Films and Television. WATT WENN is a revelation and I congradulate you. I'll certainly be using it from now on and will recommend it to all my colleagues in NZ.’
– Carey Carter, New Zealand Producer/Director/1st AD
In Texas where I wear many hats, I have to have a superior production software that's reliable, current, and support that's immediate. WattWenn has allowed me to A.D. several big projects on half of what I would have usually budgeted. There is no way i could do this without WattWenn and I will continue to use this software for all of my projects, of any size.
– Sharon Palkowetz
"It's intuitive to use."
"WattWenn raised my game."
– Jean-Pierre AFANLOME, Producer
"I'm not going back to MM now."
"Love the PDF output of the schedule and stripboard - so easy to email to Directors etc."
"WattWenn is really user-friendly and 'home grown'."
– Helen Ostler, First Assistant Director
"This latest version (2.2) is another big leap forward with colors and Element IDs."
"WattWenn is very robust. I have worked with many scheduling applications but in WattWenn I have never lost any data. Obviously this gives me the confidence that what I put in there, is there."
"Importing the script is easy. (This is now a function on EP with Final Draft Tagger, but WattWenn is a one step operation.)"
"Having being used to the constraints and limitation of EP and Movie Magic, the flexibility of WattWenn is refreshing."
"WattWenn manages to make sure I spend as little time as possible on the manual task of scheduling, freeing me up to do what the Producer and Director want me to do: prepare and shoot the film."

"The future of Film Production Management and Scheduling"
"I used to be a beta tester for Movie Magic... WattWenn! has what we always wanted... an easy way to import scripts and have them on the screen for the breakdown."
"I can now do in a day what used to take me a week"
– Scott Thaler, production manager, first assistant director, line producer
"Not only is the Scheduler fast and easy to use it's also well equipped to deal with scheduling multi episodic programmes which require cross scheduling of units, artists and filming locations. Intelligent and enjoyable to use."
"The Scheduler is not just a tool for planning the actual shoot. I applaud innovations like the Diary system and the ability to work directly with a script, features that give you the complete overview of the project from start to finish.."
– Eric Vogel, producer - imdb page: www.imdb.com/name/nm1471429/
– John Sullivan, Writer-Director-Producer
"Like the best Mac apps, very logical and intuitive"
– Matt Lawson, First Assistant Director
"The speed you can break down the script is just fantastic. Very user friendly. Fun to use."
– Peter La Terriere, Producer, FirstFoot Films
– Aubs Tredget, Producer of All Bar Love for Te Papa Films
1st AD Matt Lawson decided to use new scheduling software Scheduler 1.0 on All Bar Love. Producer Aubs Tredget was concerned, given the timescale involved.
