About Us

Shot Logger is a service of the Telecommunication and Film Department, the College of Communication and Information Sciences, the University of Alabama. It is coded, maintained, and administered by Jeremy Butler, a TCF professor. Shot Logger has been munching on editing data since 16:11 CDT on August 8, 2007, when shot data from a Friends episode were input into the system.

Version 2.0 of Shot Logger, a major rewrite of its code, went beta on November 1, 2011.

Shot Logger was inspired by CineMetrics, which generously provides the charts displayed here. And it relies heavily on the VLC Media Player's ability to capture images from video.

Shot Logger is written in the PHP scripting language and is powered by a MySQL database and the Apache Web server -- all of which runs on Linux.

Shot Logger is an open-source project and the images stored here are intended for non-commercial, critical, teaching, and scholarship purposes (see our copyright statement).
