1. Production Title
The name of your project and company. May include a logo as well.
2. Date and Days
The date (Monday, August 15, 2016) and the day number (Day 5 of 20)
3. Key people
This is usually where some of the key leaders of the production are listed, such as Producers and Directors.
4. Start and estimated finish dates
List the day you started production on, the scheduled finish date, and then the estimated finish date. This helps Producers see if you are behind schedule and, if so, by how much.
5. Script and schedule version
The current version of the script and schedule. This usually is based on the standard revision colors.
6. Key times for the day
This part is important. This is where you list the recorded times from the day, such as when lunch break was taken and when wrap was called. Remember, these are not the times listed on the schedule, they are the times of when each thing actually happened.
7. Scheduled vs Actual days
This section contains two sets of numbers: the number of days scheduled vs the number of days actually recorded so far. The number of actual days will start at 0 and you will add a day to this each day that goes by. This section is a detailed breakdown of the shoot progress and how on-track you are with your schedule.
8. Scenes shot
This section lists the scenes that were shot and a few details about them. This often will look similar to the scenes on the call sheet, however, it’s not always the same, depending on what you were able to actually shoot that day.
9. Scenes scheduled, but not shot
A list of the numbers/names of the scenes that were on the schedule, but were not shot that day.
10. Coverage / Rolls
This section is important: This is where you list how much coverage was taken and how many rolls were recorded. Tracking the number of scenes, pages & setups taken is something usually done by the script supervisor. The number of camera rolls and sound rolls should be tracked by their respective departments.
