At the beginning of every video project, we must do proper pre-production in order to get the best video results. When someone pays for pre-production it’s like paying a draftsman to make blueprints for a house or paying a mechanic to run a diagnostic test on your vehicle before ordering expensive parts. So, before spending lots of money on material or equipment that won’t guarantee a satisfactory end product, Pre-production helps a person identify what needs to be done and points all the resources in that direction to achieve optimal results. A good doctor doesn’t prescribe medicine without first having a correct diagnosis, and a good video producer doesn’t start shooting without having a good pre-production plan.
Pre Production includes:
- Getting Cast and Crew
- Getting Releases
It can include more but I find myself in a very good position when these things are completed, and done correctly.
