Production Board or Production Strip Board

15" 4-panel Film Production Board, black leather exterior

Open measures: 16 ½”H x 41 1/2"W x 1 ¼” D
Closed measures: 16 ½” H x 10 ¼”W x 1 ¼” D

This 4-panel strip board is designed for a commercial shoot. The panels have a shallow pocket along the top and bottom to hold the Cast Header and Colored Strips.

A traditional film production board or production strip board is a cardboard chart holding color-coded strips of paper, each containing information about a scene in the script. The strips, called production strips, can then be rearranged and laid out sequentially to represent the scene order that the Assistant Director (AD) will schedule the film. The sequential order of the production board will be in perfect sync with the shooting.

Strips are available at: http://filmproductionworkshops.com/film_resources/film_production_strip_boards.html

Hi There,
Not sure this is the best place to post, but I recently began making short profiles of creative people and organizations. Not sure if it's become a viable niche market yet, but it's something I'm good at and want to make more. I have embedded my latest video on the humor artist, Rick Parker called 'Finding Humor in Art.' To get an idea of the type of work he does, he recently finished the satiric comic, 'Harry Potty.'

I've pasted the url below.

Any ideas, tips or other chit-chat will be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Looks like I screwed up in the last post. Let my Vimeo Plus account expire. Anyway, below is the YouTube link to my video.

Thanks

Okay, I know this is probably getting annoying – but, if any of you know of someone who would like to have a profile made of them, love to know . . . ;-))

In reply to Catherine Stratton's post on Fri 19 Aug 2011 :

Nicely done, Catherine, but not sure whether you're looking to get hired to do more of your short pieces or looking for subjects to build up your collection of them (for possible distribution?). Can you tell us more about what your plans are?

Thank you Doug. I'm glad you liked it. To answer your questions, both really. I hadn't thought about creating a compilation piece but it definitely is food for thought. Also, I want to mention that I'm not just interested in creating films for artists but also any person who creates something unique and valuable in some way – chef, teacher, gardener, founder of an organization that helps others or a cause or creative endeavor, artisans, a filmmaker that creates a unique approach to filmmaking (like you???) – I have also made short videos nonprofits/NGOs and looking for more opportunities to do that too.

Currently I'm planning to make a few short films – one about someone who continues to do hand engraving, while machines are taking over and another about a man who builds clocks.

Below I have posted another video I made for the World Wide Orphans Foundation that I shot in Haiti. The founder is Jane Aronson who's been getting a lot of press coverage lately. It's only about 5 minutes. I'd love it if you can take a look at it.

One last thing that I know you can help with since you are the webmaster extroardinaire for the D-Word. How do I customize my settings so I receive an email when somebody responds to my posts. I have it set up so I'm emailed the post after mine but these are not always responses but posts that are on different topics.

Thanks again – cathy
