Field Footage Log

This log will help to make the planning and editing of your edited videotape more efficient. To start, rewind your tape to the very beginning and set your VCR counter to 00:00. Number your tape. In the first column, write in the tape number you are logging. In the second column, write in the starting time (from VCR counter) of the first usable shot. In the third column, write in the ending time (from VCR counter) of that shot. In the fourth column, write in a brief description of shot, i.e., man talking, women walking then sitting down, etc. This information will be used on the Edit Worksheet.
