Production strip

A traditional production board is a cardboard or wooden chart holding color-coded strips of paper, each containing information about a scene in the script. A modern version will probably be printed using computer software.

The color-coded production board strips follow a convention (according to Singleton):

Description Strip Color
Day Interior White
Day Exterior Yellow
Night Interior Green
Night Exterior Blue
Day Separator Black
Week Separator Orange
Free Day Grey
Holiday Red
