Hey,


On my first upgrade to 1st AD, I was wondering if everyone makes their call sheets oganized in the same way. If anyone there could post some example of their own call sheet version, it would help me a bunch, since I'm working in severall countries with different cultures and ways to do things.

...oh, and by the way, does anyone knows about any "film-specific" dictionary on line? Like, how do I tell an arab producer what a panther is whithout showing a picture?

Kisses,

Art

No, there is not one type of particular call sheet, however, they all basically serve the same function, and most of the time, end up looking at least somewhat similar. The important thing is that they contain the pertinant information, such as: Date, Day, Location(s) for the day, Contact details, Scenes to be shot for the day, schedule, Call times, Scenes, Travel, Breaks Estimated wrap time, Weather forecast, etc. Some contain a lot more info, some contain less. There are many examples posted on the net:

Basically, you have to choose what works best for you and the production.

Have a look at Sidney Lumet's book "Making Movies". He's got a chapter with a couple of call sheet examples from his "A Stranger Among Us". They're the real deal and highly instructive, he goes into a fair amount of detail describing what's on the sheet and why it's there. Plus it's a film voyeur's pleasure to read a call sheet with an actor like Melanie Griffith #1 on the list.
