DIY - Do It Yourself!
This will provide you with a tool for planning a film production and to give you an appreciation for the myriad of tasks associated with the creation of a movie. Your project won't necessarily require each of the steps described below. In fact, some projects can be quite straightforward and only require a few of these steps. That said, the success of your film project will largely be determined by the time and effort you invest during the planning stage. However--If you find it too daunting, let K&R manage your project.
♦ Develop the concept and Statement of Work. Define your business objectives, ideas, theme, and topic.
♦ Determine the story you're trying to tell (a treatment) and identify your audience.
♦ Decide on your form of distribution. On line, TV, radio, PDA, CD, DVD?
♦ Determine your budget. Compare the cost of a similar video program for perspective.
♦ Ensure that everyone is in agreement about the goals and requirements of the project.
♦ Create the storyboard (a scene by scene description) and script. Then make it more succinct as appropriate.
♦ Hold facilitated story planning meetings. Involve a range of people associated with the project to ensure relevant perspectives are heard.
♦ Obtain storyboard and script approval from appropriate parties.
♦ Create a timeline for completion with scheduled dates and places.
♦ Obtain necessary approvals from pertinent government authorities. Clear video project with appropriate department supervisor/office/department.
♦ Finalize locations and inform staff.
♦ Verify that the budget is adequate to complete the project.
♦ Coordinate grips, gaffers, lighting, power, set builds, etc.
♦ Reserve cameras and equipment, production staff, talent. Let everyone involved know what to expect.
♦ Note anything special you will need to bring during the shoot.
♦ Consider partnering with others if the video allows. Local schools may have kids that want to practice their video skills or a local TV station may have footage or equipment you could use.
♦ Check your budget for this video project again.
♦ Provide enough supplies to cover the filming.
♦ Gather all assets and make a DVD copy of "Dailies" for client to have for safe keeping.
If you observe all of the above steps and take the time to properly plan you have a much higher likelihood of success on your next video production. However if you find this a bit daunting:
