Daily Production Report

Production Paperwork

INSTRUCTIONS

The Second Assistant Director is responsible for sending out a PDF of the Daily Production Report (DPR) at the end of every shooting day, no later than two hours after wrap. If the production does not have a dedicated Second Assistant Director, the First Assistant Director or Producer shall assume the responsibility.

The purpose of the DPR is to communicate important information from the day’s production, such as number of setups, start and end times, in and out times, reports on delays, and reports on equipment problems. If an urgent problem or situation arises on set, however, do not wait until the end of day to report it; contact the appropriate individuals immediately. (Make sure it is documented on the DPR at the end of the day as well, though.)

Post the completed DPR the #dpr channel on Slack. The PDF file should be formatted with production number and show title as follows: 

01f3-Film Title - DPR - Day 1

Call Sheet

Production Paperwork

INSTRUCTIONS

The purpose of the call sheet is to provide all the pertinent information about the next day’s production. The Second Assistant Director is responsible for distributing a PDF of each day’s call sheet to the cast, crew, faculty, and FSU police. If the production does not have a dedicated Second Assistant Director, the First Assistant Director or Producer shall assume the responsibility.

Call sheets, along with any relevant additional information such as maps or safety bulletins, must be emailed out no later than 12 hours before call time on the first day of production and no later than the previous day’s company wrap for all subsequent days. It is important to thoroughly check — and double-check — and triple-check — that all the information in the call sheet is correct before it is sent out, because the distribution of revisions can create confusion.

EMAIL INSTRUCTIONS

The email subject must be formatted with production number and show title included, as follows: 01f3-Film Title - Call Sheet - Day 1

You may include a brief, executive summary of important information in the body of the email, but this should not be a substitute for providing all relevant information in the call sheet itself.

Required recipients are:
