NEW YORK CITY — Endcrawl (https://endcrawl.com) offers a software tool that’s dedicated to managing and rendering film and television credits. The company was co-founded by John 'Pliny' Eremic, who once ran the post facility Offhollywood, which was later sold to Light Iron. It was during his time at Offhollywood that Eremic witnessed the challanges that came with creating end credits. Endcrawl was born and the company recently raised a $450,000 seed round.
Endcrawl software can be used to manage and render both film and television credits. The core problem that Eremic discovered with the creation of end credits was the constant revisions, which were further strained through a slow and error-prone feedback loop. Endcrawl.com helps solve this via a software-as-a-service (SaaS) that runs in a browser. The service has since been used by more than 1,000 productions, including Moonlight, Green Book, Halloween and The Big Sick. Every year, Eremic says, about one-quarter to one-third of Sundance films are employing Endcrawl as well.
Some of the benefits of using Endcrawl include allowing the user to make new renders 24/7 thanks to a cloud render engine. An unlimited number of renders are allowed per project. The company charges a flat rate per project with no overages for late fixes. In addition to access by the post production supervisor, additional stakeholders can also view andmake changes based on permissions set by the project owner.
Current pricing, per-project, is a flat fee of $500 for unlimited 2K renders or $1,000 for unlimited 4K renders. Users have their choice of type font, color, size, etc., allowing for creativity.
