Call sheets are essential to any shoot. Get one for free!
A film call sheet is really no different than the call sheet for any project; you'll want to make sure you fulfill all the steps in either to get your cast and crew to set on time.
Why Every Project Needs a Film Call Sheet
The call sheet not only tells you when the shoot but also where. And of course, who's who in the production, how to contact them, and all sorts of other important details you might need to know.
Quick sidebar, this video from Rocket Jump can also give you some solid insight into how to read a call sheet:
We've shared some other free call sheets and production documents in the past, but if you're looking for something a little different, the team over at Cast and Crew Call has shared a very easy-to-use template.
There is expensive call sheet software out there, and call sheet functionality attached to other software, but the reality is you can accomplish everything you need to with a free call sheet template like this one, just as professionally, which can save your precious budget for critical things.

A production without a call sheet is not a professional one. Here is a quote from Ace Salvador on G-Casper's call sheet software:
As a film producer myself and managing partner at Prodigium, I was the first beta tester for the software. I used G-Casper on a few complex shorts and commercials, and I could already recognize its power.
