Assistant Directors Are The Walking, Talking Human Clocks On The Sets Of A Film. They Keep A Track Of How Much Portion Of The Script Has Been Covered So Far And Are Good At Estimating How Much Longer It Will Take For The Remaining Part To Be Shot In Order To Complete The Movie On Time. Based On This, They Lay Out The Daily “Call Sheets”, I.E. Entire Schedule Of Operations To Be Carried Out By The Time The Director Says, “Pack Up!”.

They Communicate To Each Department Of The Crew The Tasks They Need To Perform That Day. They Also Act As The Link Between The Director And The Rest Of The Cast. They Are Responsible For Arranging The Logistics, Maintaining Discipline On The Set And Ensuring Smooth Flow Of Work. Besides This, Overseeing The Health And Safety Of The Crew Is Also A Vital Role Of An Assistant Director.
