Production Planning What next? As a group you need to be organised throughout the production so you must meet regularly and take notes of what was said! Break down the planning of the production into stages. The stages of production planning are… The next month. 1 Write up your pitch in the form of a rationale. 2 Organise- your cast, locations, equipment etc. 3 Storyboard- this maybe done by one or two delegated group members. The last two can be done simultaneously. What do you need to ensure before shooting? Cast – are they ready, do they know when to meet? Locations – do you have permission if needed, have you done a ‘reccy’ to ensure suitability Equipment – battery charged, tapes, need a tripod. Props and costume Transportation – how are you going to get to your locations Budget – are you going to pay for cast’s travel expenses, cups of tea? Organisation of group Will everyone in the group be at the shoot? How are you going to organise your time? After school, during media lessons, weekends( will you need to book time off work?) What roles will you have at the shoot? Director, producer, camera operator. Shot list Before going out to shoot you have to produce a shot list. Very simply list the shots you will need to get on your day/session of shooting. The list doesn’t have to be in any specific order. It must include the day, time, location and cast involved plus a brief description of the shots. Remember you do not have to shoot your video in the order you’ve storyboarded it.
