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?
Limitations of space
Noise -> Is there a fridge humming? Heater? Streetcar?
2. Visualize project look/Story Board
Colour palette, mood, tone
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
Check media (SD, CF card) is clear
Know limitations: DSLRs only shoot 12-20 minutes continuous
**ALWAYS MONITOR AUDIO AND VIDEO**
Changing backgrounds: Clouds, People
PRACTICAL: LET'S START SHOOTING SOME VIDEO
*Then we will get into editing*
1. Have Fun
2. Have a basic understanding of production.
