You can generate reports projects/documents in projects to distribute script breakdown information with cast and crew. For example, an Artiste crossplot report lists all the sets where an actor/artist is needed across one or all the selected scripts in a project.
You can generate the Studio Recording Order report using the Shooting Order Script report. This report lists the details of studio scenes in shooting order along with shot information. It is used by the Director, First ADs, script supervisors, and crew.
You can generate a report from a script, schedule, or multiple scripts/schedules. When you are generating a report from the Projects view, you can include:
Select the type of the report. For example, select Shooting Order Script from REPORT TYPE drop-down list. The report contains the same scene order as in the schedule. When you create Shooting Order Script report from a schedule, the shooting order is same as the schedule and not the source script.
You can edit, print, and save the report on to computer or disk. To do the tasks, click File and select from Save As (to save report with a custom name and description), Save to Disk (to save report to a disk), or Print.
If you are generating a report from a schedule, select Location / Studio. Select Location only to include the strips that have locations specified for them. Select Studio only to include the strips that are shot in the studio. Select Location & Studio to include all the strips in the schedule, including scenes for which studio or location is not specified. (These options are available for Calls, Schedule Dates Crossplot, and Shooting Schedule reports.)
Story can generate Camera Cards report for all the cameras. While generating this report, specify if you want to generate the report for all the cameras or for a particular camera.
Camera card reports are summarized version of shots for a camera person to handle. The reports have one card on one page. You can merge the cards and remove the blank space below the cards.
To remove blank space, place your cursor at the beginning of the card on the next page and press backspace.
To add blank space, place your cursor at the end of the camera card and press enter.
Shooting order script is a compilation of scenes in the order that they were displayed in a schedule. Once you have created a schedule and sorted it, such as according to the set, characters, or time of the day, you can create a script in shooting order. While creating this script, you can specify if you want to include Location scenes only, Studio scenes
In addition to schedules, camera cards can now be generated from the shooting order script and from the source scripts. The shot numbering schemes for the reports are as follows:
- Camera Cards [Script]: The camera shot numbers are the same as the camera shot numbers in the source script.
- Camera Cards [Schedule]: Numbering is sequential and is based on the order of scenes in the schedule. Proper numbering is applied to subshots and shots with no camera shot number.
- Camera Cards [Shooting Order Script]: The camera shot numbers are the same as the camera shot numbers in the shooting order script.
