It's A Wrap!
Updated: Apr 23, 2019
Have you ever wondered why people say "it's a wrap" on the completion of a project or activity? Well, the genesis of the term comes from the film industry. Originally movies were shot on celluloid film, and I'm sure that many of us remember seeing old-style cameras with film moving from one reel to another. At the end of a scene the director would shout "that's a wrap", and a runner would unload the full spool and rush it to the Processing Department to be developed. WRAP was a short-form instruction for the runner to Wind Reel And Process. So that's a wrap for this post!
