In my opinion, Yes. If you’re an indie producer or entertainment executive it’s irresponsible to not have the JotNot app.
So many film closings are, at some point, predicated on selling just one more key territory at a film market that is just prior to principal photography. The sales agent is having drinks with the buyer; she gets them to say yes and they sign the short form agreement. When the buyer steps away to order more drinks, the agent grabs her iPhone and snaps a picture of the form and, using the JotNot app, emails it directly to the lender and producer. The financing is now complete — the film goes into production.
JotNot is a five-dollar iPhone app that allows the phone to act as a document scanner, then (using the phone’s camera) converts the doc to a PDF or JPG (your choice) and emails it out. The best $5 the agent (or any entertainment executive who has had to procure a signature on-the-fly) has ever spent.
I normally don’t do product plugs, but this one works amazing. The quality is equivalent to a fax (I’ve attached a “scan” of a document taken from the PA tax credit application that has fine-print and hand writing.)
