Transcript of Unit 1 - Pre Production Techniques. (Creative Media Production)
UNDERSTAND REQUIREMENTS FOR A SPECIFIC MEDIA PRODUCTION.
Finance is one of the most important components of a media production; if you have a small budget it will be difficult to create a film that will gross millions. But if you have a large budget you can expand your finances to buy better equipment that will improve your experience. Finance in productions also has to pay for personal that will be working in and around. In the TV industry, when making a professional music video the artist used is supposed to be paid as the video is produced by a professional production company with a big budget.
In any production there is a time set for the deadline and smaller deadlines for other part that need to be finished in a schedule. Film industries use deadlines a lot as a film has to be recorded before it is edited, if they didn’t have a deadline the film would not be released in time. If you miss a deadline you can start to lose money, which will effect your time even more when you're falling behind schedule.

TYPES OF PRODUCTION:
There are a lot of production types when it comes to creative media production, anywhere from video games to radio they have different requirements when animating. For example radio production will need the same base requirements as an animated film; a radio won’t need a storyboard or a plan to produce a radio station but it will need specific high quality microphones. The production stages include: the form of production, finance, time, materials, contributors, locations and codes of practice and regulation.

MAIN PEOPLE IN A FILM CREW.
Equipment can be very expensive depending on what you are producing. In most small film productions the equipment is either hired or supplied by the company they are working with. Even if you do hire/rent equipment depending on how long you want it for, it can equate to quite alot of money. On the other hand in radio, they will have to buy all the equipment themselves which will be a one time payment. This will save them alot of money in the future which, then they can use to improve their present facilities.
A BASIC RADIO FACILITY
Materials are mainly used in the film industry, when making actors/actresses costumes and clothes. While they are making the costumes they can use the pictures in publishing to advertise the film on posters e.t.c. Films also use a lot of materials when building sets as they need to be accurate and the same if they remake them. In radio they use a lot of digital graphics in publishing and also when radios have a live webcam online.
In productions you need a proffesional opinion to tell you what has gone right and what has gone wrong. Contributors help with the finance side aswell due to them advertising your production. They also can provide acting roles as they have many contacts with other people, this gives you an opportunity to improve your quality. An example of a experienced contributor is Katie Carman-Lehach, she has invested into many films helping out the social media side of the production.
There are alot of limitations when choosing a location for your production. You first need to find a suitable location and then get permission off the local council. Also their is alot of safety risks when choosing a location especially when involving stunts. For example if your location involves a cliff you need to take safety precautions to prevent injuries. Even if the land owner alows you to use the area they may not want it to be recognisable, this means the film maker has to disguse the aera to the owners needs.
A FAMOUS FILMING
CODES OF PRACTICE AND REGULATION:
With codes of practice and regulation any production has to have the rights to any music or copyrighted content. This means they have to ask the creators permission and maybe even pay a license. Including health and safety the company will make a specific contract including insurance. By law every company needs to take safety precautions and keep the staff in the best care possible, they also need to make sure they dont overwork people as this can be breaking the contract. Most producers have to be fully qualified in health and safety before working on any production. Producers have to visit websites and time slots on tv to see when their production can be aired, this is to make sure the film is suitable for all ages or just certain viewers. Any paper work that is done by any of the production staff is fully checked before any action is taken.
