Shooting Schedule:

The form -- prepared by the 1st A.D. -- that lists all the pertinent information extracted from the production board, or its print-out computer counterpart.

The schedule details all the elements of who, what, where, and when together with the number of scenes and pages to be shot each working day, for the length of time it takes to complete the filming of the project.

Sides:

Pages or scenes from a script used by performers for auditions and by certain crew members on the set.

Shooting Script:

The script approved for filming -- after all revisions of action and dialogue have been finalized and the pages arranged in acceptable form.

The raw stock -- unexposed film -- that remains at the tail end of a magazine when that film is too short for making another complete take.
