A Filming Schedule
This is specifically for when you go out on location shooting and should be viewed and completed as though it were a bible. It needs to be comprehensive so that anyone else looking at it knows where you are, with who and how to contact you at every minute throughout the day. This is for Health & Safety reasons as well as ensuring that you have thought through the filming day and have a realistic idea of what you can physically achieve. A filming day from when you leave the house to when you get back or to an overnight hotel should be based on 10 or 12 hrs.
Always have a plan A and plan B if you are filming outdoors and detail that in your schedule so you don't waste time on location if you need to swtich plans at the last minute This happens more often that you might think so be prepared Nothing should be left to chance!
