these reports are an anachronism anyway, same as slating. hopefully they'll morph into something more useful over the next decade, or disappear.

 

in music vids and commercials there are no camera reports anymore (for digital work).

nearly everything is noted by script supervisor, and vetted by DIT/DMT, before going out to the lab

 

Many editors like having the slate because it gives the details on their screen.  Short form productions can be rather different in their demands to long form, also it applies a discipline on the set, actors know that something is about to happen and crew members on a larger set can see a take is about to happen.

I've long felt that slating, while it hasn't been strictly necessary for decades, has a certain disciplinary value.

the actual slate as a shot identifier will not disappear. 

i meant to act of the physical clapper will. hopefully. soon.

So wait, where is the audio logged? If the audio is being recorded externally shouldn't that be listed on the camera report?

Audio is the sound mixer's job. No reason for it to appear on a camera report, other than to note if a shot is MOS.

If thats the case how does the editor know what audio clip goes with what.

audio people have their own paperwork.
normally they give us that paperwork at end of day, and it goes along with camera reports to the lab (so some time after wrap transport will be asking camera assistants 'how long until film and sound is ready?')

A camera report form is listed on this post. Do you know where I can find a good form for the audio side of things? Or at least whats it called?
