Empower your TV Production team with the right call sheet

Every production needs a call sheet, but some might be wondering what a call sheet even is. The basic call sheet definition is the daily schedule of filming for a production; but it is really so much more than that basic call sheet definition.

It is crucial that every team member knows what they need, where they need to go, and when they need to be there. You never want a member of your team scrambling to figure out the name and address of the day’s shoot location. That is why you need a call sheet. It lets everyone know what tools and supplies they need. A call sheet lets everyone know exactly where to go and exactly when to go there. A call sheet also contains the detailed schedule of the day, so team members know what to expect during the day. It leaves no question unanswered, which lets your production team focus on what they do best.


Intuitive call sheet templates

Call sheets have a lot of information on them, so it’s a daunting task to create one from scratch every time; but there’s no need to start from scratch every time. You can use the intuitive call sheet template from Production Hero

The call sheet template allows you to focus on more important things, like the shot list or shooting schedule, and spend less time creating and editing your call sheet. Another benefit to the call sheet template from Production Hero is saying goodbye to huge email lists. You don’t have to email the call sheet out to every member of your production anymore. Production Hero is web based, so your call sheet is live on the web and anyone you give access to can see it, live. Even better than that? You can actually see who has seen your call sheet and have your production team members confirm their call time, right in Production Hero. You can also see who hasn’t yet seen or responded to your call sheet and resend it to them. Never be stuck at your shoot crossing your fingers and hoping your missing team member is just running late, and not that they didn’t see or understand your call sheet.

The call sheet that makes sure your crew will be there

But, lets get back to your call sheet template on Production Hero. One of the most innovative features is the map. Yes, that’s right; when you enter your shoot’s location the call sheet will automatically generate a map and pin your location. Your crew can use the map to get guided directions to the shoot location. Never stress out any of your team members again with confusing directions and locations. Sometimes your locations may change though. Don’t worry, we’re ready for that at Production Hero. Just make the changes on your call sheet and click the “update crew” button and the call sheet will be sent out to your team with a short note. Once again, you’ll be able to see who has viewed the call sheet and resend to anyone who needs to see the changes.

It's time for a intelligent call sheet

Having a call sheet is a must with any production. Having an intuitive call sheet template that allows your team to focus on what they do best and not wondering where they’re going and what to expect when they get there. Keep your production on track with the revolutionary call sheet template from Production Hero.
