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(if any), of studios or major production companies on marked up scripts * any theses, papers or articles (published or unpublished) on marked up scripts * any public or private libraries (institutes etc.)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. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Harry Kirchner LaTrobe University Australia tel: +61 3 9489 1552 (h) tel: +61 3 9479 3512 (w) fax: +61 3 9479 3638 (fax) www.latrobe.edu.au/www/screeningthepast/ an electronic journal of visual media & history www.latrobe.edu.au/www/artmedia/screenoz.html a new screenwriting book ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ---- Screen-L is sponsored by the Telecommunication & Film Dept., the University of Alabama.
