Turnover or Roll Up
Roll sound/camera or Turnover. The A.D. calls for audio and camera to start. “Turnover” is most often used in the British film industry which means ‘starting to film’. This a lead up to 'Action' so for actors this helps understanding that your time to start the scene is coming up.
At the end of the shoot, it is announced to the crew by clearly stating 'That's A Wrap'. Your day isn't done until you are release by the AD in charger of your schedule. Always stay onset unless you are allowed to leave for lunch or a break.
As an actor these are some of the main terms you are going to hear on set that are key to understanding the day to day runnings of production. Though the list does go on, this is a start to knowing the industry lingo for your training!
