"Filming," "Taping," now ... ?

When I first started out as a PA I made the major faux pas of asking where we would be "filming" that day. The director turned to me as he packed up his Betacam and said, "Taping ... we're not using film. We're taping." That was the last time I made that mistake.

So ... what are we doing now?

"Solid-state storaging?"

Nah.

"P2ing"

That just sounds wrong.

I haven't seen this addressed elsewhere and I'm probably out of the loop ... and, I ask the question rather tongue-in-cheek, but, really ...

... what ARE we doing now?

Well, we've always been "shooting" and will continue to be "shooting" when solid state takes over.

I like shooting...

but I'm a naturalist, I will always say filming no matter the technicality, in essence, it is the art of film that has created the way we do things. We still "cut" we still "Edit" we still record sound, we also still say action in Narrative shoots and in the end, we still call it a film, not a tap, or a recording, or a DVD presentation, or a projection... We call it a film.

I say Filming is correct as anything.

You're working a "shoot". You have a "shoot" today. I'm "shooting" XYZ thing. I'm setting up for a "shoot".

Shoot. It's universal and applies to stills, video and film.

You may not want to mention shooting in the same sentance as school, post office, any government office, or bank.

Keith,

That probably goes without saying, but then again common sense isn't common, is it? (laughs)

How about 'aquiring' or 'capturing'? Seems more suited to solid state media.

Most over used joke of the 1980's.

Question: Who shot J.R. Ewing?
Answer: Panaflex lenses.

Isn't "lensing" in vogue in some circles?

Man, what an anal director, that's all I can say.

Filming....or shooting, or recording, or taping.
