Chicago Video Production Checklist Saves Time & Money!
There are a number of important matters to consider when preparing for a video production. Our expert Chicago video production team has put together a video production checklist for your use. In the next few weeks, we’ll be releasing blog posts on each tip that go into detail about that specific topic.
Here are 7 items you should sort out before a video production:
1. Camera crew
Our production checklist discusses how many cameras you need, where they’ll be positioned, who will be doing what, etc.
2. Video shoot location
Consider lighting and sound issues, whether the space is suitable for a video, etc.
3. Use of special effects
More for editing, but does your video need special effects, motion graphics or other bells and whistles.
4. Need for actors
How to audition actors and prep them for their roles.
5. Production Budget
There is nothing worse during a production than running out of money. Figure out as much as you can on paper, BEFORE one frame of video is shot.
6. Video Equipment
Assess your video equipment needs. Lights, cameras, audio, jib, slider, etc. all need to be considered.
7. Lowering Costs
Follow our guide and you’ll keep your costs to a minimum and get the biggest bang from your video dollars.
As they say in carpentry, measure twice and cut once. The same goes for video production. Pre-production is the time to consider all of your production needs – not on the day of the shoot!
