So you’re shooting in studio and the weather outside really doesn’t matter to the production or the crew. Do you just delete the weather forecast from the call sheet? You can… or you could take the opportunity to report on other weather forecasts that might be appropriate to the genre and tone of your production. For example, how about these ideas?
- A fictional weather forecast for location in the script that day
- Describe the weather inside the studio
- A weather forecast for various cast or crew member’s favourite vacation destination
- A weather forecast for random locations around the world
When you do include information on the call sheet that is along these “fun” lines, remember to be clear to the crew (the readers) that you are indeed having a bit of fun and that the information you’re including is not serious.
So, what weather-or-not ideas do you have?
Cheers & a sunny shoot to you (well, if it’s sun you want for the script!),
