I developed a trick to help me figure out where the actors should stand and where we should position the cameras on the various sets. I reproduced the set designs on mailing labels and placed them in my shooting scripts wherever I wanted to make notes about how I was going to shoot a scene. I called them "blocking stickers" because they are used for blocking a scene, which is movie jargon for figuring out what is going to happen between calling "action" and "cut".

These blocking stickers aren't anything fancy. It's just a laser printed image on some Avery labels. But they played an important role in how I shot the series. I don't think I could have tracked the continuity of all the different characters' entrances and exits across four different sets without them.

The sets included here are:

  1. The clubhouse
  2. The recording studio
  3. The bus
  4. Backstage before the concert
