pre production paperwork for mediaPresentation Transcript
Production Paper Work......
This is used to record the assets used in production and make it easy to find things. It lets you know were you got information and images from.
The links in the sources help when looking into the copyright of the material. This is essential under the copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988
I found this helpful in my production as it helped me locate whereabouts each asset was used in my editing and where I sourced it from.
This is the sheet for production budget. Budget is used to calculate how much the production will cost overall. Taking into account the costs of equipment (such as camera hire, lighting etc).
It also accounts for the cost of crew, Actors Transport requirements props
This is essential peace of pre production, without this I wouldn’t have known the cost of my production and could have spent money that I didn’t have.
List of every one that is involved in the filming. All the information needed to be given to everyone involved. Call sheets are made every day of shooting. All information covered.
This information is used to keep everyone up to date on the shoot.
It also provides contact info for the crew. Expected weather for the shoot (therefore crew can wear suitable clothing)
Without this my actors and crew wouldn’t have known where to go what time to be there. The weather section will also let my production team know what kind of clothes to wear – waterproofs etc..
Contact information on everyone involved in production. Email addresses and phone numbers.
This is useful if you have to contact a member of production – having this information available allows people to quickly resolve problems.
This was handy for out actor who was late, he had a copy of the contact sheet so it made to production team aware so we could prepare for his lateness and get started soon as he arrived.
All information on what is on tape for editing. Make it easy to edit.
The description allows a short summery of the clips.
This information is used in post production and ensures the editor and special effects.
This sheet is really handy, it tells the editor which parts of the video to use. These are the good parts of video and marked by a quality rating.
Location Permission Form
You need to make sure you get permission, to film in public places.
If you don’t then they could sue you for trespassing
Also with the added threat of terrorism getting permission is important, to present to authority.
We had to get permission from the local authority, This was so our filming day could run smoothly without no interruptions.
Release and consent agreement
You need to have permission to use the footage of people in your production.
You need them to sign and agree so the production company owns the right of the footage.
If they do not agree to sign the form then that part of the footage can not be used
This is a check list to ensure you have everything needed for production.
When hiring equipment you need to check it’s available, check when it’s booked and then count for it to say everything is there that’s needed.
The benefit of this is so you know what you need to book what equipments available to hire therefore ensuring your shoot runs smoothly
To draw and write what is happening in important shots and key scenes. Also holds shot types, dialog and key movement.
Helps the director get the details of the shot right.
This is also handy for the camera operator to see, this is so they know what shot the director is looking for.
All productions must have a risk assesment in place to minimise the risk of something dangerous happening.
You record each possible risk with a rating ect and have a plan of action in place incase something happens
I had to make my production team and actor aware of deep water which surrounded us in one of the filming locations.
This is basically a timeline production schedule which allows you to keep organized...
Colour coding allows you to easily understand the Gant chart.
Allows you to keep check of deadlines easily.
Information for the editor to find good bit’s of footage
The Director ensures the correct clip is used for the edit
Show’s the time codes in & out for footage that the director wants to be considered for final edit.
The quality of the clip is also noted to ensure the best footage is used.
Research pays a key part in planning for any media production. No production gets made without it.
I did market research to collect information about the target audience of my product. An example of my market research is the survey I carried out on MP3 Players and the age group they target.
Another piece of research I carried out was production research, this research is why my production run smoothly an example of my research would be the location recce, and risk assessment which allowed me to highlight the possible hazards when on location.
