Run through the 1st AD Set Procedure: Block, New Deal, Build, Rehearse, Shoot…
Manage the time on the set by keeping up with the Setup Schedule. Adjust schedule as needed.
Look ahead to next setups and make sure departments are prepared and working ahead.
Verify with volunteer or caterer that lunch will be brought to set in time to set it up prior to releasing for lunch.
Six hours after Call Time, release the cast & crew for lunch.
Make periodic announcements on time remaining on lunch.
Make sure lunch does not exceed one hour.
END OF DAY
At Camera Wrap, make sure crew sanitizes equipment while wrapping safely and efficiently. Make sure to have Company Wrap on time.
Complete the Performers Time Report, and have the actors sign it before they are dismissed for the day.
Make sure 2nd AC, Script Supe, and Sound Mixer meet at end of day to verify their reports. Have them give you all reports.
Collect the camera card from the 2nd AC, and the sound card from the Sound Mixer.
Have crew members sign out using the iPad. Once all crew has clocked out and returned their walkies, plug in the iPad and walkies for the next day’s production. Monday Producers can hold on to the walkies and return them to the ER by 10am on Tuesday; and hold on to the iPad to return to the Head of Production by 10am Tuesday.
Once the Script Supe is finished with the SS laptop, then pass that laptop to the crew member who is the Producer in pre-pro the following day (i.e. the Friday Producer passes it to the Sunday Producer; the Saturday Producer passes it to the Monday Producer). Sunday and Monday Producers can hold on to the SS laptop to return to the ER by 10am Tuesday.
Clean and secure location. Be the LAST TO LEAVE (except perhaps Art Dept). Leave the location better than when you arrived.
Pass the key to Critchfield to the Producer for the next day’s production. Monday Producers can hold on to the key and return it to the Head of Production by 10am Tuesday.
