If anyone has any information on the following, I would be very grateful.
* archiving policies (if any), of studios or major production companies on
marked up scripts
* any theses, papers or articles (published or unpublished) on marked up
* any public or private libraries (institutes etc.) which might have a
collections of marked up scripts
By "marked up scripts", I am referring to the copy of the script which is
marked up (slate, number of takes and shot type) by the continuity person
on set at the time of filming, and is later used by the editor in the
cutting room. At the end of production, it is normal practice to file away
the marked up script with the editor's materials - trims etc. This is my
understanding at least. Nevertheless, I'd be very interested to hear from
any professional editors (especially those who have worked on productions -
in *any* country), as to their own understanding of what happens (or has
happened) to the marked up script once they have finished with it.
