Convergent Media Billable Hours Logs

The Billable Hours Log should be thought of as a time sheet. You are keeping track of the things you do each day, and how long they take. You will be rotating through a variety of tasks (ie, director, actor, video/still camera operator, slate person, boom mic/sound operator, etc.) and be doing something different in each mini production.

Therefore, the billable hours log can be a helpful tool during editing as well--you may not remember who was doing what, and if there is an issue with some part of the production, you will have a paper trail of who to follow up with to troubleshoot.

It is also serving the important function of helping us determine if each person in the crew did their fair share of the work. Attendance and participation are a huge part of this project.

We will collect one time sheet from each person on FRIDAY, JANUARY 15 and on FRIDAY, JANUARY 22. Make sure that your time for each day and the week total is rounded to the nearest .25 hour--(15 minute time increment) So if you worked 1 hour, 45 minutes on something you would put 1.75 hours in the time log.
