Once your production has been set-up and ready to be distributed, create Call Sheets for your principle photography days. Call Sheets is a notification and a “cheat sheet” for your Crew, Cast and everyone attached to your Edictive project.

Step 1: Select a project from your portfolio screen.

Step 2: Attach at least one Location to your project.

Optional: Create or import Script in to your project. Make sure your script has Description types (ie. EXT. POOL), these delineate your scenes and can be linked to your Shoot List.

Optional: Set-up your Shoot List. It is more meaningful to set-up your Call Sheet once you have attached Crew, Cast and Props to your production project.

Step 3: Click on Call Sheets found under the Production navigation menu.
