Production Speak

The AD Staff uses a lot of lingo to communicate throughout the production day, and let’s face it; time is money.  Hence, they (and all other AD/Production staffs) use lingo to speed things up.

Even when it comes time to do one’s business, they got ya covered—

"10-1" means you’re going to the restroom, but won’t be long.  

"10-2" means you’re going to be a while, most likely with a magazine or smart phone.

Lot of 10-2’s after lunch, at least saying of the word, whether it was to indicate action, we weren’t checking.
