Pre-Production
*This is the most important element to a production*
PRE-PRODUCTION CHECK LIST
1. Prepare a strong story, concept or script
3. Prepare Production Schedule
Block out dates -> no conflicts
Log, take notes
Be realistic -> rule of thumb -> 8 hour shooting day covers 2-4 minutes of final video
4. Secure crew members and equipment: Cameras, Sound, Lighting, Shooting, Directing
5. Scout and secure locations:
Notes about light
Power -> Are there power issues?
Size
Limitations of space
Noise -> Is there a fridge humming? Heater? Streetcar?
2. Visualize project look/Story Board
Colour palette, mood, tone
Collect images
Storyboard
6. Talent
Always cast appropriately -> Downfall of most productions is bad acting
Make sure you have consent forms prepared for production
7. Prepare costumes, props and set dressings
