Set Lingo for Newbies (Plus a Couple for Old Hands)

A few weeks ago I was walking through a set and I hear, "Hot points! Hot points!" It seemed to be coming from the direction of a crew member walking away from me, but I had no idea what it meant. Google to the rescue! In the process of my Googling, though, I realized how much lingo gets thrown around on sets and wondered who out there could benefit from a condensed list.

Some of these are crucial, and I can see how if you don't know the terms, you are at a serious disadvantage trying to give the director what she is looking for. I also coach a lot of beginners, and this list is a tool I am excited to share with them!
