Introducing Sixth Degree: The Ultimate Tool for the Film and TV Industry

If you work in the film and TV industry, you know how complex it can be to manage schedules, availability, and communication between all the different players involved. Whether you're a crew member looking for work, a production company trying to keep track of everyone's availability, or a supplier trying to get your products and services in front of the right people, there are a lot of challenges to overcome. That's where Sixth Degree comes in.

Sixth Degree is an app designed specifically for the film and TV industry that makes it easier to manage schedules, availability, communication, and more. It's the ultimate tool for everyone involved in this fast-paced and ever-changing industry, and it's already making waves among industry professionals.

At its core, Sixth Degree is a platform for crew members to create profiles and manage their availability. This means that if you're working across multiple productions, you can centrally manage your schedule and ensure that you're available when you're needed. You can easily mark off days when you're not available or working on another production, and you can communicate your availability to all the productions you're working with through the app.

But Sixth Degree isn't just for crew members. It's also a tool for production companies to manage their crews and schedules more effectively. Productions can communicate with all the crew members working on their production through push notifications and in-app messaging, and they can organize their entire crew's schedule within the app. This helps build an availability schedule across the entire industry, which can be incredibly valuable for everyone involved.

In addition to crew and production management, Sixth Degree also allows third-party suppliers to create profiles and list their products and services. This makes it easier for production companies to find and hire the right suppliers, and it also helps reduce emissions by pairing productions with local suppliers. The app is searchable by keywords and location, making it easy to find the products and services you need.

One of the most powerful features of Sixth Degree is its ability to enable bulk job postings. Productions can post jobs to reach a maximum audience, and the app will intelligently pair the post with crew who fit the criteria. This can help productions crew up in a matter of seconds rather than days or even weeks. With everyone's availability centrally managed on the app, it's much easier to find the right crew members for the job.

But Sixth Degree isn't just a tool for finding work or hiring crew members. It's also a platform for communication and collaboration within the industry. The app allows users to connect with each other through message requests, which can be approved or rejected. Once you've connected with someone, you can easily communicate with them through in-app messaging, making it easy to stay in touch and build relationships within the industry.

Sixth Degree is also committed to promoting diversity and inclusion in the industry. By creating a level playing field for hiring, the app helps people be visible for jobs they might struggle to be visible for with no connections. This can help increase transparency in hiring practices and ensure that everyone has an equal chance to succeed in the industry.

Of course, with any app that handles sensitive information like availability and scheduling, security is a top priority. Sixth Degree stores all data securely, and users can choose to share only the information they want to share. Sixth Degree is working to ensure that all data protection is in line with industry standards.

Currently, Sixth Degree is focused on launching in the UK, but the plan is to expand quickly with promising uptake in the industry.
