As a San Diego video production company, our goal at BizVid Communications is to make the production process as easy as possible for our clients. To do that, we lead clients through a logical and uncomplicated video production routine. We keep them informed at each stage of the project.
In an earlier blog titled “The Script” we made mention of a companion piece to that document called the “Shot Sheet.” The purpose of the shot sheet is to put every scene outlined in the script into shooting order. For example, if the lead character is to have six scenes in the kitchen with each scene happening at a different place in the script, the Shot Sheet will dictate that those scenes be shot at that location within the same timeframe. The kitchen scenes are shot out of script sequence and will be dropped into the video at the appropriate places during the post production process.
Make sense, right? Compare that to shooting a script in scene order and in sequence. Doing it that way means that the cast and crew are constantly required to move back and forth between locations. Not very productive is it? So, the Shot Sheet provides the director with a quick reference and a reminder of all that needs to be shot at the current location set-up.
The efficiency created by the Shot Sheet also saves the client money. It allows for the production to be more organized and reduces the amount of time required to get the footage “in the can.” And since time is money, the less time spent equals the less money spent.
