Call sheets

Call sheets can be elevated to a complex science requiring at least two PhDs. In contrast our call sheets were just simple google docs. We've set up a shared folder which every cast/crew could view. There is a nice app which allows viewing the document directly on your phone so that last minute updates directly show up on the phone. No messy e-mails. Just up to date pages.
Each of these documents looked like this one:

--------------------------------------------------
5th Sept



Sound: 9.30am
Dir,AC,1st AD,design,runner: 9am
Edit: noon



10am:
scene 33/34/35: Anna, Robert (Scene 34 now just a voiceover of Josh)


11am:
scene 36: Anna, Robert, Jojo, Ruth


1pm: break

2pm: reshoot 48-49

3pm:
scene 45: Anna, Robert, Jojo, Ruth

7pm:
scene 85-89 first rehearsal/blocking: Ruth, Anna, Robert


Props:
Aspirin tampered with
Normal aspirins


---------------------------------------------------

all call times were actual 1st take times. Actors could come whenever they liked as long as they were ready when I called "action". Also in terms of clothing that was the actors' responsibilty and that worked perfectly.
