A career as a Lakeland videographer is not an easy one. There are so many things that you need to stay on top of to make sure that the entire production goes as smooth as possible. However, no matter how much care and attention you put into a single video production, there is no stopping certain issues from cropping up which are completely out of control.

But how do you fix these? After all, everything has already been budgeted for, so what are you going to do about any additional production issues? Here are some ways that you, as a Lakeland videographer, can handle on-set problems.

Fix it in post

One of the most common phrases that you may hear on any video production set is the phrase, “Fix it in post”. This means that any problems or visual goofs that you may be encountering during filming can be easily fixed during the post-production step of the production.

This is especially useful if you have a lot of filming to do, and there isn’t any time to shoot a scene again. However, don’t be too complacent with this mentality. As much as possible, you should make things right during filming as too many fixes during post will end up costing you more time and money in the long run.

Sometimes rewriting is better than revising the plan

If you find that one of the actors can’t make it to a specific day of filming, or other scheduling conflicts, your very first instinct may be to revise the schedule to accommodate everybody.

However, as a Lakeland videography, you are probably already very familiar with how difficult, not to mention expensive, it can be to have to revise a set schedule.

With this in mind, it might be worth considering to rewrite a scene if there are scheduling conflicts as opposed to having to reschedule.

If you reschedule, you have to pay for location fees, tech crew, and additional expenses that could have been easily avoided. If you rewrite the scene, then you can save yourself the headache and costs of having to reschedule.

Just roll with it

Above everything else, it’s important to have a healthy state of mind when it comes to handling problems on-set. It is tempting to rant and rave when things don’t go according to plan and schedule, but this isn’t going to solve anything.

It’s always a good idea to have a “just roll with it” attitude about these things, and see what kind of creative solutions you come up with in response to an emergency.
