is important during all phases of movie making, it's

creation of some very effective tools to address this need.
• The call sheet is perhaps the most
important piece of paper handed out
to cast and crew during filming.
• This report includes detailed
information on the next day's shooting
• It lists what scenes will be filmed, the
location, which actors are called and
their call (requested arrival) times as
well as the crew's call times.
• Because most information on set is verbal-and very time-sensitive--walkie-talkies serve
as the primary communication tool on a film
• This includes when camera and sound are
rolling and cut, when the crew is "moving
on" to the next scene and announcing wrap
(the day's end).

directors usually manage walkies, including
• During filming, memos, revised scripts, blank
time cards and pertinent documents are
delivered from the production office to people

envelopes to the assistant director (AD) team.

respective crew members or their department
• Information System keeps everyone connected
on the set.
• Throughout the development, a variety of
information systems keep a film production
• Emails, phone calls and memos comprise the
majority of those information systems.
• Tools like email and telephone are particularly
important tools, especially since there are always
tight deadlines to make.
• Information on producers' visits, extras casting,
location scouting and any other important events
are filtered through production.
