Photographers give you a proof sheet after the shoot. Is there something similar that a video editor starts with, the get a sense of all the shots? I need to see all the shots at a glance.

If the dit makes one (big if) there should be a shot report. It would only have stills though that basically list each set up.


We bake it into the deliverables, once we get the hard drive, our team exports all the raw footage as a string out for us to see. This is dependent on level, caliber, director, and what’s agreed to upfront


On set the scripty or DIT could make this for you. In post it would be a non traditional step but by no means impossible.


Script Supervisor. They sit beside the director and check that the dialogue has been delivered as scripted, all storyboarded shots have been captured and makes a note of the Director’s favorite takes for the editor. Digital Imaging Technician. Works with the Director of Photography (DP) on workflow, camera settings etc and delivers footage to the edit suite.


The DIT should have the ability to print thumbnails for every clip into a report using Shotput or something like foolcat/Hedge. Are you an editor? You can use the grid view in the project window to show thumbnails (prpro). If not, you should be able to show thumbnails of some sort in Finder if it’s something Preview can decode (mov/mp4, not mxf, raw, etc formats). For more detailed info on shots & coverage, that is in the scripty’s wheelhouse.


Imma writer. Thanks for all the hot new lingo. Are shotput, fooldcat/Hedge programs? I was given a link with all the footage. But even viewing at 360 low low rez it's nit playing through in real time on my 5g wifi. So it's taking me a long time to view the footage, find something I like, take a screen shot, etc. I am just using these images for the storyboard for my initial concepts and scripts. Then will hand off to the editors to work their magic.

Joyce does, every single time

I’m using CatDV. As soon as I can get my hands on a drive all the footage gets proxied and made available to my producer/creatives/editors via web. They can rate shots, add keywords, add notes, etc. All the metadata flows back to the server and it’s there forever so it’s useful for pulling archive footage too.

Any lady 🐟 going to be in Dallas this week?

Finally cut off someone I thought was a friend. We dated for 2 years and cohabitated (2017-2019). He dumped me twice, slept with someone else the first time. After the second time, he eventually dated a woman who terrorized me just because that was her nature. Each event was pushing me back into a pit where I stayed in bed daily and didn't understand the point of being around. I eventually got a little better, focusing on my mental health, and then he came back around... (cont...)
