A lot of things have been happening that none of us could have ever anticipated. As a result, plenty of industries are scrambling to adapt to what is considered as the “new normal”, which means, for many industries, including the Lakeland video production industry, working remotely.

For an industry that relies entirely on face-to-face interactions to obtain the shots needed for the video, this presents a unique sort of challenge. Challenging, but not impossible. Read on to find out the best way to seamlessly transition your Lakeland video production team to remote work.

Make sure to plan for everything

Like a good pre-production phase, the key to making sure that your team is successfully transitioned over to remote work is proper planning.

Planning out what is needed for the benefit of the production, what your team needs to function properly, what will have to be removed, and how to compensate for the lack of face-to-face interactions, these are just a few of the things that you and the rest of the production team need to plan for to get started with the transition.

And like a good pre-production planning, you should never skimp out on this stage. Take the time needed to thoroughly plan this so that all of your bases are covered.

Take advantage of the technology available to you

Fortunately, there is no shortage of technology out there which can help your team adapt to online work. Everything from communication to time management tools is readily available in both paid and free versions which can help progress the video production project.

The main thing that you have to keep in mind when you shoot your scenes is to maintain the social distancing guidelines as well as the hygiene regulations to keep everyone safe from infection.

Communication is crucial to the success of remote work

Finally, in order to make sure that the transition to remote work is as seamless as possible for your Lakeland video production team, you have to emphasize the importance of communication for the team as whole. It can be very easy to let a project suck you in and forget to update the rest of the team on the progress of your part of the project.

Not only that, but it can get lonely if you’re alone and working from home, so regular casual check-ins via the numerous online communication applications available can go a long way in keeping everyone’s mental health in check, which is crucial to the overall success and happiness of your video production project and crew.
