DATABASE FAQs

Why do some projects turn orange?

After viewing a project, the title instantly becomes orange. This provides you with an easy way to keep track of what projects have already been viewed.

What does the black circle with a U mean?

A black circle with the letter U in the center means a project that you have previously viewed has been updated. As soon as you view the project, the U will disappear.

How can I bookmark a project?

To bookmark a project, simply click on the bookmark icon found on the bottom right-hand corner of each project’s popup window. Once you do this, you will see a black star appear next to the project’s title within the database interface. To remove a bookmark simply repeat these steps.

How can I find projects that I’ve bookmarked?

To locate projects you’ve bookmarked, click on the up or down arrow key located in the column heading “Project” and the projects you have favorited will be grouped together and shown first.

How can I find projects shooting within a certain location?

To find projects by location, please visit the database section and enter the specific location name within the search bar, like Los Angeles. However, if you want to see projects outside of a specific city you must do a search by the State’s name and then by the State’s abbreviation in a separate search. For instance, if a project is shooting throughout Louisiana, but without a specific city determined yet, the project’s location will be listed as Louisiana. If the project is specifically shooting in New Orleans, the location would be listed as New Orleans, LA. However, in order to see all projects in Louisiana, you will need to search both “Louisiana” and “LA”. If you’re looking for projects that are shooting in certain countries, you must search by both the Country name and then by the Country’s standard three character abbreviation in two different searches. If a project is shooting in France but without a specific city determined yet, the project’s location will be listed as France. If the project is specifically shooting in Paris, the location will be listed as Paris, FRA. However, in order to see all projects in France, you will need to search both “France” and “FRA”. To view State and Country abbreviations, simply click here.

I’m having trouble locating a project that was previously listed on your database?

Projects are generally left on the database for 90 days past the original start-date (unless we receive updates about a delay). After that, you can still find information by looking through past weekly reports.

I found incorrect information on the database, what can I do?

While we work to ensure accurate data, sometimes details change last minute and aren’t communicated outside of the production company. Please send discrepancies to research@productionbulletin.com so we can immediately investigate any changes that need to be made.

How do I sort the database?

To sort the database by particular fields like title, location, start date, simply click on the pyramid found in the left hand side of the column title. Click on the upper pyramid to sort ascending, and the bottom pyramid to sort descending.

How can I search the database without sorting?

To search the database without sorting, simply type a word of interest into the search field found on the upper right hand side of the database. For example, if you’re looking for projects located in Los Angeles, simply type Los Angeles.

How do I see additional information about a production or distribution company?

To view additional information, simply click on the production or distribution company name and a popup window will appear (if this doesn’t happen, you may need to disable popup blocker in your browser settings). You can then print the information by scrolling through the data and
selecting the orange print button.

I determined a project of interest, but how can I view more than just what’s visible in the database interface?

Simply click the word VIEW found on the right hand side of the database. You can then print the information by scrolling through the data and
selecting the orange print button.

What if I want to view more than just 25 entries at a time?

Users can determine the amount of entries visible per page by simply increasing or decreasing the entry count found in the Show Entries drop-down menu located on the upper left hand side of the database.

WEEKLY REPORTS FAQs

When is your weekly report published?
