Can someone shed light on what those time code logging devices are used for on the set? film or video.
like the script link or scriptboy? what type of things are typically recorded that require timecode as a reference? just curious.

Mainly used for video shoots where you may not stop to break shots down with slate ID's, but run the camera continuously, so the script supervisor needs to see the running time code in order to correlate it to the notes on the scene. Otherwise the editor just gets this huge long take containing multiple actions with no clue as to what pieces are covered.
