History[edit]

Doddle is a product founded by Mobile Imagination, LLC. in 2010, by principals and founders Richard Kwiat and Jim Robertson[1] . Doddle allows film, video and audio industry related professionals to search for vendors and freelancers instantly with their interactive production guide throughout the U.S.[2]

The Product[edit]

Doddle allows a user to select from over 100 different listing(s) of their choice, they are able to communicate and collaborate with that entity.[3]

Doddle offers a customizable favorites list so you can organize all the companies and crew you prefer to work with.[2] Doddle offers a "recents" section to ensure you won‘t have to search all over again for listings you‘ve already looked at. Film Commission info is also available, by hitting a "hot button" in the doddle app from any page to take you right to the doddle‘s international film office listings.[4]

Producers can plan and manage their own workforce through the creation and instant distribution of their digital call sheets.[5] The Doddle call sheets function can be created on your smartphone as well as on the doddle online platform. All call sheets will always remain synced together.
