Any scripts with shot lists or shot list documents for films out there? Interested in checking them out and see how they differ from director to director or cinematographer to cinematographer. Any help with this will be appreciated.

I’m presently working on two shorts. One has been storyboarded and won’t require a shot list. The second one will and I’m interested in getting a general sense of what others include in them.

If you're going to be directing it yourself, you don't need to meet any standard as far as a shot list goes. This is especially true if you're also acting as your own cinematographer. Directing even a short is a lot of work, and there's no need to worry yourself over what a shot list is "supposed" to look like on paper; it's not like you're going to have to get it approved by anyone, so it only has to make sense to you.

I’m actually not shooting them myself. I’m on writing, directing, producing, and editing chores. On one project, we lucked out hiring an Emmy award winning DP. On the other project I’m working with a DP who requires a shot list, basically for expedience since it will be a 3 day shoot Max, unlike the other short which will be a 12-15day production.

My favorite feature is Apple Watch integration. Your watch tells you what shot you're on, and how much time you have left before you're behind schedule. Best of all, you don't have to crack out the iPad or phone to check, so you don't stress out the crew.
