A listing, with manufacturer and name, of each gel
used on a plot
. With four major manufacturers each making over 100 colors, a list of only the colors used makes life easier for the Master Electrician
or for whomever is doing the take-offs and avoids confusion between the brands.
The Color Call
is usually placed near the Key on the plot. Sometimes the following is inserted into the Notes section instead/as well:
All "R" (or "RX") prefixes indicate Roscolux
All "L" prefixes indicate Lee
All "G" prefixes indicate GamColor
All "AP" (or "A") prefixes indicate ApolloGel
The Color Call differs from a Color Key
, in that the former is only a list, whereas the latter includes a representation of angle, and may not include every color.
