When you set out to make a movie, the more planning ahead you can do, the better. Figuring out exactly what you'll be doing during a shoot saves your crew time and labor, and saves you, the producer and/or director, from cost overruns and production headaches.
In this how-to training video we show you how and why to assemble a storyboard, organize your resources, and manage a production schedule. When film-making, time is money, and being well organized will keep you on time and, more importantly, under budget.
Here we show you how to bring your characters to life by casting the best talent you can for your production. We show you where to look for actors, and walk you through the screening and audition processes, all the way to making a final decision.
Just having a great idea and a good storyboard doesn't mean you're ready to shoot just yet. Like any good cinematographer, you'll first need to consider how to get your location ready,what you'll need for make-up and wardrobe, and what to prepare for your talent and crew in order to ensure that your shoot day goes well.
