As a Lakeland videographer, the last thing that you want for your video production shoot is to have a stall in the middle of production as a result of a lack of preparation. After all, you could have your entire crew on set, everyone is ready to go, and something fails.
As much as possible, you want to make sure that you have everything that you need to make the production go well. It is your responsibility as a Lakeland videographer to check on everything before you start filming to make sure that it goes as intended. Here is a checklist for you to refer to for this.
Check your gear
One of the most important things that you need to check on your video production is the gear that you’re going to be using on the production itself. The very last thing you want when you’re working on a video production is to have an essential piece of gear fail on you right in the middle of a production shoot.
After all, you are set to work for a specific number of days and wrap up filming within a certain time frame. So any setback, no matter how minor, can set the entire production back by several days if you’re not careful.
A lot of the time, these setbacks can be caused by issues with the gear, so it’s very important that you check your gear before you begin filming, from the battery charges to the lights to make sure that everything is in place for filming.
Check your legal paperwork
If you’re going to be shooting on location, it’s very important that you make sure that you have all of your legal requirements in place. This includes everything from location permits to the fees that you need to pay to shoot at certain locations.
One of the worst things that can happen to your video production schedule as a Lakeland videographer is having your entire cast and crew arrive on location, only to find out that since you don’t have the needed paperwork, you are not allowed to film for the day.
This can throw off your entire filming schedule, leading to more setbacks, and a video that is even further delayed. If you are going to be shooting in a specific location, it’s very important that you draw up the needed paperwork in order to make sure that this particular scenario does not end up happening to you and your video.
