Home : Glossary : R : Rushes


Rushes (AKA daily rushes or dailies) is a film production term used in some countries to describe the raw footage from a day's shooting. The "rush" refers to the speed with with the footage must be prepared — this was more of an issue in earlier days of movie-making when film footage needed to be processed before viewing. In the digital age the footage may still need to be converted for ease of viewing, often to DVD format.
