From mobile phones and video-capable tablets, to pocket camcorders capable of streaming video direct to the Web, to home movie archival footage converted for editing to video, focus has also been on the production planning necessary to ensure better quality content. Focus on preparations using storyboards, writing production scripts, developing shot sheets, determining budgets and more to keep better control over a production.
