On the contrary, but part of my van load of production manager kit is a printer that gets used to update scripts for those people who hate reading off screens – as yet nobody has produced a way of adding quick comments, changes and colours – so even with paper, we find some are on very different versions unless one of the assistants spends time constantly updating things for them.
Even things like lists that get re-arranged cause grief with paper, and a paperless crew is a wonderful idea, but not possible for me yet. So somebody with V12 updates it to 13 with a few changes, this needs EVERYONE to update, even if their script doesn’t need it. It’s technology that makes life worse, not better (for me). Others may well love it!
