What is the best way of sticking actor names on the camera so that is stays on throughout the day?


Recommended Posts

I usually cut out actor names on call sheets and stick them on the camera just with paper tape... it doesn't always hold very well throughout the day, also doesn't really look the cleanest. Wondering how you do this properly? 

 

thanks!

Why do you need to do it?

In case a DP/operator needs to interact with an actor  for whatever reason (to take a light reading or something) and they can't remember the names of the actors. Usually a trainee would be asked to cut out a piece of the call sheet with the actors names and stick it on the operators side of camera. Just wondering the best way to actually stick it on

Put the cut out into a plastic name tag holder, like the type you get at a convention or event, and velcro that onto the camera. Then you can just slide in the new cutout every morning and it provides a little more protection so it doesn't get all crumpled up.

Something like this...

Love this idea.

Also, can hold sides for the day!
