[SERIES] Preparing for your Shoot

Category: Production Planning Last Updated on August 24, 2011 Fred Ginsburg

Preparing for your shootGood sound and picture does not happen by accident nor on its own. It requires concerted efforts from all the production executives (producer, director, production manager) as well as from members of the crew.

From location scouting, crewing, and dealing with rental houses, this series covers essentials of the pre-production process.
