Scenechronize Raises $5 Million


Scenechronize CEO Hunter Hancock announced that the company has closed a $5-million financing deal for its web-based production management system, (led by three private investors), and will soon be opening a new office in Burbank for its sales, marketing and customer support staff to complement its current office in San Francisco. Hancock also announced that veteran Hollywood director David Semel will join its board of directors.

Scenechronize automates production information workflows, streamlines communication amongst the crew and provides an online, virtual hub for the production office. The system automates the digital distribution of scripts, sides, call sheets, prep memos, location maps, welcome packets, etc. Often this information is exchanged via a blizzard of phone calls, emails, memos and paper – a time-consuming, inefficient process susceptible to mistakes. scenechronize expedites and streamlines communications for the entire production, saving wasted time, money, and lots of trees.

“When all of a production’s information is digitized and available for review and collaboration no matter where you are, the creative process has been permanently altered, and vastly improved,” said Semel, who is directing the new Bad Robot pilot, Person of Interest, for Warner Bros. and CBS. Other directing credits include No Ordinary Family, Heroes and House.

The funding and board appointments come as the company continues to add studios, networks and production companies to its customer list, which includes: Warner Bros., Columbia Pictures, HBO, Universal Pictures, Paramount, AMC, ABC Studios, Playtone Productions, Apatow Productions and Film 44, among others. The company’s current film and television credits include MI:4, No Strings Attached, Battle: LA, Larry Crowne, The Walking Dead, Dexter, No Ordinary Family, United States of Tara, 90210, Breaking Bad and others currently in production.
