A few new things and a handful of fixes
|Posted January 28, 2010 by Peter Vesterbacka 4 Thumb-ups|
We've added quite a few new twists and tweaks to Wreckamovie over the last few weeks, and this week is no exception to that. At the same time we are working on reducing the clutter and keep things as simple as possible, so expect to see some less is more action from us too.
Trailer / teaser videos on top
We moved the videos on the production page to the top + made it bigger, so that is now the first thing you see when you hit the production page. Looks better + gives the most important content the best spot. No big development involved, but part of our effort to make the production pages more attractive and functional. You will see more in this area soon.
-fixed uploading of various file types (WAV, AVI etc should all work now)
-news comments show properly in activity stream
-group tasks not shown unless you are part of the group
-deleted items don't show in activity stream
-streamlined registration & invites a bit
-various smaller fixes as usual
What's up next?
We are working on making the production pages more customizable. As part of that also working on making the news section better, adding more flexibility on RSS feeds and some other tweaks.
A bit further out we'll also have more of a press kit capability as part of the production pages, really looking at how we can make it easier for productions to promote what's going on to the world.
Another thing that has come up many times from many of you is the need for more storage and easier sharing of whatever content is needed in the production. We are pretty far in our investigation of the various options and we will have much better functionality and capacity in the not too distant future.
That's it for this week, back to work;-)
New week, new features
|Posted January 18, 2010 by Peter Vesterbacka 8 Thumb-ups|
Time for another week and another set of new features here on Wreckamovie:
Added a share button to productions, tasks, shots and news items. Makes it easier to share stuff to Facebook, Twitter, Digg and other sites.
You can now give thumbs up directly from the stream. Useful for short shots and comments that show up completely in the stream.
You can now find the comments made just like shots made. Your own under the My Comments tab and comments by others under the Comments tab.
And as usual some small fixes here and there, nothing major.
The next batch of new features will be live early next week. We are trying to get some new stuff out every week now, so expect a shorter list of new features, but also a shorter time to get them to you.
No excuses. Make Your Movie.

Happy New Year and new features
|Posted January 07, 2010 by Peter Vesterbacka 5 Thumb-ups|
Happy New Year to you all! I hope you enjoyed the holidays and are as ready to wreck as we are.
To kick things off for the year we have added some new features to Wreckamovie that you've asked for:
You can now mark shots that you like and keep track of them in the new Favorites tab in MyWreck. This is something that especially the production leaders have asked for, with 10s or hundreds or shots and comments, it can be really hard to keep track of the ones you like and want to include in the production. With the new favorites tab this should be pretty easy.
We also added a new Activity tab in order to make it faster to get to the latest activity on Wreckamovie.
Filter activity stream:
With more activity in Wreckamovie (and hopefully even more this year) we also wanted to make it easier to navigate the activity stream. You can now filter it and see just the productions you are a member of. And production leaders can see just their own productions. Also tweaked the view a bit so that there's now a bit of a visual difference between the shots and the comments.
Somebody asked for an easier way to find productions that have been completed. You can now find them under the Films tab by clicking in the Completed category. This is a quick fix, this part will certainly evolve going forward now that we are seeing more productions getting finished.
There's a whole bunch of smaller fixes and tweaks that we have done behind the scenes. To name just one, we changed the title for the site into "Wreckamovie - Be the Future of Film" so that Wreckamovie now comes first. It used to be the other way around. Now it's better for bookmarking etc.
