We run Zenfilm on Copper...an innovative project management software that is robust in features and highly cost-effective. It is the brainchild of Aussie entrepreneur Ben Prendergast and not only is a great software package for running any creative endeavour...but it is backed up by some of the finest customer service in the biz.
The name copper has become part of our corporate culture...people won't even acknowledge a task until it is assigned by Copper. "Put that in Copper and I'll get right on it," "Is it in copper?" "Everybody update copper tonight before you go home"...I hear the name Copper 20 times a day.
It's easier for us to use than post facility packages costing 20 times as much, it's intuitive and it is always getting bettter...check it out.

My opinion might not count for much but other Trussart owners include Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Ziggy Marley, Charlie Sexton and many more....Filmmaking and music are my two greatest passions...I have been playing rock guitar... more
