Chapter Nine. On the Set > Record Keeping

Record Keeping

Record keeping on movie sets involves practices inherited from the old studio system, but even modest-sized video productions need to follow them. Each of the following reports has its own purpose.

Production Board

We've already mentioned the first AD's production board, or strip board, which shows the entire shooting schedule as a sequence of vertical paper strips, one strip for each scene (Figure 9.6). Whether you schedule your board manually or with the aid of a computer, eventually you'll want to sort and arrange the scene strips in shooting sequence. (For more information, see “Breaking Down the Script,” in Chapter 8.)
