Shooting information from
|episode "My Fault"|
The Monday we were visiting was the first day of the shoot. All of the day's scenes took place on the first floor. The morning scenes were set in admissions, featuring John C., Ken, and Richard. Sarh shot her only scene in the afternoon with Zach, who was later joined by Donald, Judy, Robert and Tara for the afternoon cafeteria scenes.
We saw four items used by most television and movie productions that are critical to a successful shooting schedule:
We had the opportunity to examine each of the above for "My Fault" during our visit. Some pages from the script sides and Tuesday's call sheet appear below, edited to remove some sensative information and phone numbers. (The images are large and may take some time to load).
The pink shooting scripts for "My Fault" were about fifty pages, including a cast list and scene summary. That sounds like a lot, but there is actually very little dialogue on each page, so the script was a very quick read.
They must print a boatload of them - it seemed every time I went to Video Village, someone asked me if I wanted a copy. Remarkably, I managed to keep track of my single copy through the entire day. The pages are printed half-size and the resulting packet fit very nicely into the pocket of my lab coat, along with some napkins, a bottle of water, and my camera.
Lyda was passing out the prelimiary call sheets for Tuesday about two o'clock on Monday afternoon. If I'd realized that "Extra" was going to be filming Dayna Devlin's appearance on Tuesday, I might have come back to see that. But Danny had been right - Monday was the best day in the shooting schedule for background work.
