Revision in Technicolor

Posted on October 7, 2006

I tried googling the script revision colors but couldn’t quite find a site that had them all listed. So here they are, all eight colors, some with names you’d think they pulled from a Crayola box. And remember, this is mainly for production, after the script is locked and changes are made. White away when you’re writing your spec script and going through multiple drafts.

  • White – Locked Script
  • Blue -1st Revision
  • Pink – 2nd Revision
  • Yellow – 3rd Revision
  • Green -4th Revision
  • Goldenrod – 5th Revision
  • Buff – 6th Revision
  • Cherry -7th Revision
  • Tan -8th Revision

Hopefully you won’t be going over eight revisions. I believe you just start the colors over again if you do. These colors also apply to revisions made to One-Liners, Day out of Days, Call Sheets, Daily Production Reports, etc.
