I no longer live in sunny L.A., is there any place where I can order an 8-panel production board and strips online? All I've found are some being sold for around $200 by Tom Keane. I don't remember them costing that much.

There was a stationary store on Ventura Blvd that had them. I wish I remember the name of the place.

Bumping for the nighttime posters. I imagine the use of production boards has declined in favor of digital solutions?

Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Just wondering. I'm old but I can't be that old. ;-)

Sure, I remember strip boards back in the 1990's.  Don't see any advantage to them since every department head and assistant needs a copy of the one line schedule.

Hi David,

 

Well, what is it that folks use now?

Thanks

I'm not an A.D. but I think most are using Movie Magic:

Here's a company selling a cheaper alternative:

Looks great, David, thanks! I googled about this a few times now and it seemed that no one knew what a production board was, it was odd seeing such a common thing disappear all of a sudden.

I remember those old strip boards being carried around location like the Ark of the Covenant...  The only thing I liked was seeing the strips get pulled out as you completed something.
