A call sheet is a list of tasks for a day, typically crafted by the assistant director. It is meant for the cast and crew of a production. The call sheet is a document that informs people involved in a production of the location, date, and time that they should arrive at to begin filming. It is organized by call time, which is when people are expected to arrive at a set to begin working.
In addition to scheduled tasks, call sheets typically include useful information such as contact data (e.g. phone numbers of crew members and other contacts), the scenes and script pages being shot, and the address of the shoot location.
In complex productions, call sheets also have information such as cast transportation arrangements, parking instructions, and safety notes.
Call sheets may also provide logistical information regarding the location. It is common to find such items as weather information, sunrise/sunset times, local hospitals, restaurants, and hardware stores.
