scenechronize Now Fully Established in Hollywood

$5M Financing Raised; David Semel Joins the Board; New Office in Burbank

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - March 22, 2011) - scenechronize, the only web-based production management system in Hollywood, has closed a $5.0M series B financing, led by 3 private investors -- it was announced today by scenechronize CEO Hunter Hancock. Hancock also announced that veteran Hollywood director David Semel will join its board of directors. Last, Hancock announced it will be opening a new office in Burbank for its sales, marketing and customer support staff to complement its current office in San Francisco.

scenechronize automates production information workflows, streamlines communication amongst the crew and provides an online, virtual hub for the information factory that is the production office. scenechronize 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, significant amounts of money, and lots and lots of trees.

"scenechronize is the future of production. 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 David 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."

Hancock commented, "We are thrilled with the vote of confidence that this financing and board appointments provide and we look forward to further establishing scenechronize as the production management tool of choice for all of Hollywood."

The funding and board appointments come as scenechronize continues to add studios, networks and production companies to its already lengthy 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 many others currently in production.
