What's in a CCSL?
Specialized Scripts

Combined Continuity & Spotting Lists (CCSL) are extremely thorough transcripts of a production. They may contain:

  • dialogue

  • time codes of dialogue

  • speaker IDS

  • sound effects

  • time codes of edits

  • continuity

What are specialized scripts? These are scripts that contain more than just dialogue and/or must be formatted in a very particular way, depending on the type of script.

Some of the more specialized types of scripts we offer are:

  • Combined Continuity & Spotting Lists (CCSL)

  • Combined Continuity & Dialogue Lists (CCDL)

  • As-broadcast (ABS) scripts

  • Transcripts with language annotations (for translation and subtitling purposes)

  • Dialogue lists

Take a look below at some samples of specialized scripts:
