I was wondering if anyone had advice on best practice for digital camera reports. I've worked on a number of digital productions and thus far all of the reporting methods have been completely different, ranging from; nothing, to basic scene and take numbers, to full details of every shot. Is there a common reporting system used by larger budget films? I'm aware that there will be some variation depending on director or DoP and the info they want.
One thing I have noticed is that the DIT guys generally keep a very detailed spreadsheet of all of the cards and clips so, what I generally do is give them the following info:
- Card/Roll Number
- Clip Name
And any notes of course.
I generally put some sticky tape on the back of my clapperboard and keep a note on this so that when we reload the card I just rip the tape off and stick it over the card case and hand it to the DIT.
If I do this however I do not complete a negative-style report, like you would for film. Am I doing things right? Anyone have other tips?
