I declare the Celtx call sheets to be actually usable. They populate automatically from the scheduling software right within Celtx.
My one complaint is that they propagate all the information like "location" and "contacts" populates both forward into all future call sheets but also backwards into previous ones. This is a bit of a pain in the tuchus if you're going back to previous locations.
Also it would be nice if there were a dedicated space on the call sheet for "nearest hospital".

I also declare that we will not be using Premiere to edit Android Masquerade. We're going to wait a few months to be ready to work in Premiere by using Final Cut Pro. The reasons for this are primarily that we need a better way to deal with color-correction in Premiere than the effects which are native to it. In other words I need to upgrade Magic Bullet and I'm using a pretty old version now.
Moving to Premiere has tremendous advantages for us. Now that we're shooting h264 Quicktime movies we can edit without transcoding in Premiere. In fact, we'd be able to edit even in AVCHD in Premiere. But Final Cut won't really work well with .h264 files. So it's ProRes -- transcoding using MPEG Streamclip.
What else do we want or need?
