ProductionPro as a Key Tool on Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

ProductionPro is the first specialized solution for teams working in film, TV, or theater production. The powerful collaborative tool that we helped build allows creative teams to stay in sync through any last-minute changes. 

Here’s a fun fact to share the next time someone asks you if you saw the latest Black Panther movie – the creative team behind the sixth highest-grossing film of 2022 stayed in sync during production using a collaborative digital tool that Infinum helped build.

The app provides a scene breakdown that offers a bird’s-eye view of the latest changes. Thanks to annotation tools, users can write notes, highlight, and sketch directly on the script. The notes can easily be separated, organized, and shared with the rest of the team or just kept private. Any updates are synced across devices in real-time, and everyone involved can easily interact with the latest research, pre-vis, and designs by tapping on each scene and character. 

The best proof of ProductionPro’s amazing usability is the fact that it has already been recognized and adopted by industry giants, including Marvel Studios, Walt Disney Studios, Amazon Studios, Paramount Pictures, Apple TV+, and more.

Breakthrough role in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

We partnered up with ProductionPro back in 2019 to build a web version of their existing iOS app from scratch. By making the tool available on desktop and mobile devices, it could reach a much wider audience of industry professionals.

As our partnership with ProductionPro matured over the years, the scope of our collaboration grew. Currently, we are in charge of the design and implementation of the key features in the web app and quality assurance, while our Product Owner works in tandem with their PO and strategist. 

Working together in an agile setting, we’re the team behind the scenes that makes ProductionPro the valuable collaboration-supporting tool that keeps production running smoothly. 

You can imagine how ProductionPro comes in handy for a huge production like Marvel Studio’s Black Panther franchise. Like all films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Wakanda Forever was a huge undertaking, and every new idea would have its own butterfly effect. A small change could have a massive impact and turn into script or schedule revisions that affect everyone.

Wakanda’s producer Nate Moore first came across ProductionPro through Disney Accelerator and became intrigued by the product, testing it out on Marvel Studio’s Eternals. He decided to take full advantage of it on his next production – Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Several key members of Wakanda’s production team were thrilled with the ProductionPro’s features.

It’s understandable how such a tool can be a real asset in large-scale Hollywood productions. The effortless transitions between script, script breakdown, and media library streamline workflows. Real-time sync means the entire production team is on top of the latest creative changes. 

ProductionPro is set to redefine outdated industry practices. By supporting efficient collaboration with film, TV, and theater production teams, it provides a little behind-the-scenes digital magic that empowers creatives to deliver their best work.
