I'd never heard of this production management / remote collaboration software until today when it was mentioned in a video interview with cinematographer Jeff Cronenweth. I don't think this is really something for no-budget films, but for decently budgeted indies and higher profile projects this seems like something pretty invaluable if you're working with people spread around the globe. Users of Pix System include David Fincher, Frances Ford Coppola, Sam Mendes, and Walter Murch.

holy shit, about to embark on the biggest shoot of my career (which is just a small ad agency shoot with medium sized budget) and shits flying loose and I wish I'd known about this software seven days ago.
