Slugging is when the storyboard is edited to the correct length of the show, by the director or the slugging director. The director checks for continuity through out the board, making sure the dialogue works with the appropriate scenes. The director times out all the principle actions in every scene and if the show is too long, must find sequences that can be deleated without disturbing the story telling. On the other hand, if the show is too short, the director has to find areas where he can either add new scenes or stretch out existing scenes, without slowing down the pace of the story.
