Chicago Video Production Lessons
We produced a Chicago training video production for Sears Rauxa in just two weeks. That’s how much time we had between getting the project and the due date. There was some time lost before the project was awarded to us that could have been put to good use, but the client took 2 weeks to accept our budget.
Clients often don’t realize how long it takes to produce a video. We were fortunate that the script was written before we began production. But even with that done, we still had to storyboard the video, find a cast, find a place to shoot, organize a crew, determine shooting days, and finally do the editing.
Giving us less time to organize the organize, shoot and edit a project jeopardizes the quality of a project-especially in the editing process. Look at it this way, when an editor is short on time and has a deadline to meet, clients often have to pay editors overtime to get the project done. Not only is that approach costlier, it also puts undue pressure on all involved and could harm quality of the final product. Fortunately, we are used to pressure and realize that these things happen. We were able to complete the project on time and within budget, much to the relief of all involved.
Planning your Chicago Video Production
To properly plan for your video production to be done on time, consider the following:
- Plan backwards from when the project must be done.
- Give yourself a fudge factor from the known due date and pretend it’s a few days sooner.
- When you know your due date, make enough time to get proposals from various companies, allow for script revisions, finding a location, screening actors, etc. Get a sense from a Chicago video production company how long they need for all aspects of pre-production, production and post production when setting your timeline.
