Filmmaking Deadly Sin Number 15 – Do A Shot List & Check It OFF!
I know, you all do your shot lists before you go out and shoot (well most of you anyway) but what I can’t believe is that you don’t check off the shots after you’ve done them. You think I’m joking? I see it all the time. And who’s got that shot list anyway? I was just on a shoot where the Director made up a shot list but didn’t give it to anyone. He showed up on the shoot and hadn’t made copies for the Producer, AD, DP, or anyone. He assured everyone he had it and I even saw him looking at it occasionally. Oh come on! Make a shot list, make copies and then check them off as you do your shots. How hard is this?
