Hacking the Hack If you have a set of tape logs[Hack #5], you can import them into your digitizing systems. The best approach is to break up the logs by importing sets of tapes into each system. This approach effectively breaks up your digitizing task into manageable pieces and keeps you organized (and less confused) during what is usually a hectic time. People who are lucky enough to have a shared disk among their systems can still use part of this approach to transfer information from one system to another.

Others prefer to digitize all of their footage and view it on their computer. However you choose to log your footage, I strongly recommend not using your master tapes. A simple mechanical failure with your playback machine can easily destroy your master footage, which cannot be replaced. You should treat your master tapes as prized possessions because they are irreplaceable. (Of course, you could always reshoot. 4. Logging Your Footage Logging your footage is a time-consuming process, but the payoff is well worth the investment.

I also like the fact that I can write notes on the back of the cards. 2. Indicating camera movement. Quite obviously, drawings don't move. So, in order to demonstrate camera movement, you should draw arrows to indicate when the camera should pan, dolly, or zoom. If you want to indicate a zoom, you can also draw a square around the area you would like to zoom, as shown in Figure 1-8. Since your storyboard is first and foremost a tool for communication, don't be shy about writing on your drawings.
