Yeah, I don’t always always put presets in my reports. But if a director turns to me and specifically says “THIS GETS PRESET AT THIS TIME”, I make a note of it just to show that it’s been addressed and that they don’t have to tell me a thousand times.
However, I have run into instances when a designer (or more frequently the TD) gets into tech and sees “Oh, you preset that like this? That can’t work” and they prrooooobably could have been avoided if the note had been made in the report.
But. C’est la vie. Listen to your advisor because you’re in school. Do things your way when you graduate.
“Listen to your advisor because you’re in school. Do things your way when you graduate.”
Some of the most important lessons I learned from from the mentors in my internship program…were about what kind of stage manager I didn’t want to be.
