Pre production techniques pro-forma

  1. 1. Pre-Production Techniques LO1 Aby and Shania
  2. 2. Finance Self Financed The idea behind self financing is to provide my own money to put towards completing my project – this could be used in cases such as: buying ingredients, to make the dish myself and then to photograph it. Employer/Client Financed The client/employer that has hired my company provides money to help the product get created – you can request further profit from them to help with the production process. Using this method, if I’d need a certain amount of money to hire out a studio for photography, they would provide the money as long as the end results are professional. Kickstarter Kickstarter is a website that allows media companies, such as mine, to advertise products and ask for money from the public to aid in the production process. This could be used to help buy materials or help fund hiring out personnel and so on.
  3. 3. Finance Which source of funding will be most likely for your production and why? We are going to be using self finance as funding because we think that we don’t need a lot of profit to help us make the product. I feel like the product will be better as it will be made using our own money to fund the things we need, we don’t need much to complete or fund the project, we just need the location, mode of transport, ingredients and a camera to go to our desired destination. Advantages • We’re not relying on other people/companies • We don’t need to find any companies to fund us Disadvantages • If we do come up short for money, we wouldn’t really have anyone to rely on • It could end up costing more than originally planned
  4. 4. Finance Explain the aspects of your production that could require finance. • Transport to desired location – it could be further away from one of us and end up costing more on their behalf • Ingredients for the food that we’ll be making personally at our homes • (possibly) hiring out a camera • (possibly) hiring out a tripod • Having to buy props for the images
  5. 5. Time What methods could you employ to ensure you stick to your deadlines and why would this be beneficial to your project? Using examples from your own experiences can help you add detail here. I think that we should create a schedule to help us decide what we are doing so we always have something to do, we have pre-planned who is going to make the food and when we will be heading to our desired location. This means that everything is on time and we are always doing something and not ending up with a lot of free time. In previous tasks such as Graphic Narrative I haven’t stuck to my schedule and my work has ended up un-organised and I ended up spending too much time on one particular thing, sticking to the schedule will make everything a lot more organised in this project.
  6. 6. Time What is contingency time and how might this be beneficial to your project? Considering some general risks to your project could help you give a more detailed response. • Allowing us to plan our time effectively • If one part of our project fails we will have a backup plan to help us quickly and effectively overcome the issue • An example of something planned that might go wrong and need contingency time is: if one of us can’t make it to our desired location on the day, we would have to plan for another day where it is possible for both of us to be at the location. • Another example is: during post production, if an image is taking too long to edit in Photoshop, the other member of the team can start photoshopping other images to help keep the time whilst the other image is finished.
  7. 7. Personnel What size team will you use for your production (large or small)? How many people will you have in your team? Consider the reasons for this. Think about the advantages and disadvantages of your team size. We will be using a small team to complete this project as we may need an adult to help us cook the food and make it look presentable – other than that, it will just be me and Shania. Advantages • It means that we can get the tasks done quicker as it’s only two of us • We don’t have to go through the trouble and effort of finding and hiring an ‘expert’. • It would cost more to have a larger team for things such as: transport to the location. Disadvantages • If we do have trouble financing, we won’t have anyone we can rely on. • If we have trouble with transport, it could take a while to find a replacement – could cost more
  8. 8. Personnel What job roles would you have in your production and what skills and experience would be required? Graphic designer – both • Create interesting, new and unique designs • Photoshop experience • Needs to be able to reference previous work/experience Photographer – both • Photoshop experience • Photography experience • An eye for detail Designated driver – the parents • Driving licence • Effective time management Costume designer – both • Pin-up style 1960’s etc. Model – both • Modelling experience • A range of body shape (don’t want a stick figure) Chef – both + parents • Someone who can cook • Has experience Copy writer – both • Able to read and write • Compatible with computers
  9. 9. Personnel How could you find people to be in your production team? Think back to your own career development plans to help you with this. The only people that we would need to ask permission to be in our production team is our parents as they are the designated drivers and help when it comes to the cooking and possibly other tasks – this is to keep our budget low as we are self- financing.
  10. 10. Facilities List the equipment, resources and facilities you need for your production and its source Equipment/Facility/Resources needed for production College Self Client A camera Possibly Yes no A tripod Yes No No Food ingredients No Yes no Costumes No Yes No Makeup No Yes No
  11. 11. Contributors Contributor Type of Contributor Team member Abygail Jones, Shania Carter, Claire Jones and Jane Carter Client Vegetarian Society Tutor Guy Ellis, Josh Roberts and Ben Wheeler Photographer of Sourced Images Using own images
  12. 12. Locations What method could you employ to identify locations needed for your production (production/ post production facilities) and how could this be useful? Using a recce to make a decision on whether a location it suitable or not, ask questions such as: • How long does it take to travel to said location • Do we need permission to use it? • Does it look appropriate for what we need? • Is it safe? • How much does it cost to get to/use? • Also just travelling to go look at the location before using it.
  13. 13. Locations Are there any limitations or risks you would need to consider for your locations? Location Limitation/Risk Brimham Rocks (possibly) Rocks falling Unstable landscape Falling over a rock Vehicles and traffic No supervisor Limited services Photography Studio The lighting - breaking, - glass Breaking equipment Personnel tripping over wires Possibly no supervisor
  14. 14. Codes of Practice - Clearances What is a model/location release form and why is it important to your production? A model/location release form is used when taking photographs, the idea behind them is that the model or the owner of the location signs a form with their information that lets the photographer photograph them and use their images to show to the public. This ensures that if any lawsuits come up in the future filing complaints against using their images, the model release form can be used for reference that the model or the owner signed and agreed to let me photograph them and use the final products in my work. Without the forms, they could sue my company and press charges against me in a court case – they are very important for future reference.
  15. 15. Codes of Practice - Legal What legal requirements will you have to consider in your project and what aspects do they relate to? Aspect of Production Legal Consideration Taking pictures in desired locations Health and safety of personnel Making sure to have a risk assessment for a location before going Production stage Copyright issues Make sure not to use logos or photographs with watermarks on images Post production stage Health and safety Make sure to have regular breaks during the post production process to prevent health problems such as: repetitive strain disorder
  16. 16. Codes of Practice – Regulatory Bodies Which regulatory body’s guidelines would you need to follow when creating your production? Where could you source that information from. Be specific. We could source the information of the regulatory guidelines from the ASA, their guidelines are to do with advertising food and drink. We could also source information from CAP as they work with the ASA to ensure that companies get their advertisements right (ethically and legally) before being published.
