V
VARIETY - A weekly newspaper version of Variety, often called the “new bible” or “ongoing history” of the Entertainment Industry. Variety provides production updates that can be used as employment or contract leads by actors and other professionals in the entertainment industry. It tracks trends, personnel shifts and other entertainment business news. Variety is well known for “industry-speak”, the often-colorful shorthand or abbreviation of industry concepts both in headlines and within the body copy. Daily Variety is the Monday to Friday daily version published in Los Angeles. Major competitor: Hollywood Reporter. http://www.variety.com/

VERBAL  - Primary meaning is words and the use of words or symbols. Alternative meaning, also known as “vocal,” is the use of the voice, which may include inflection, accent and other tools, to communicate a thought, idea or action.

VHS - Video Home System. The most common home application for video reproduction. Used in the industry to distribute demonstrations or to see how the final product will look in its lowest audio and video quality (240 lines) distribution application. S-VHS, or Super VHS, is an improved and only partially compatible form of recording with a higher picture quality (400 lines). S-VHS is used for time shifting by local television stations and for fast transfer of demonstration “dailies” to production offices from remote locations.

VISUAL  - What is seen. The use of the image to communicate a location, time, thought or idea. This may include facial expressions, body language, cinema or graphic shorthand (such a crashing waves or a clock face), location and camera or special effects related to or used in necessary communication.

V.O. - Voice over. An off-camera voice coming either from an actor not in the frame, or from a secondary source such as a speakerphone or answering machine.

VOUCHER - Time slip with all pertinent information needed for getting paid properly.

VLA – Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts.
