On the day of the shoot, all of your pre-production, scheduling, casting, location management, and transportation will come into play.
Lighting each scene for each different way the camera is facing is important to make sure the scene’s look and feel is achieved. Allow time for scene setup and changes when switching filming directions.
YOUR CAST & CREW
They are working for your project. Make sure they are well fed and have plenty of snacks and caffeine on set to keep the energy and productivity up.
SURE YOU HAVE EVERYTHING ACCOUNTED FOR
Sticking to your budget and schedule is imperative. But there are always things that come up at the last minute. Parking fees, transportation fees, replacement crew if someone gets sick. Plan for the what if’s. It is also highly recommended to make sure the cast and crew are paid after each day of shooting for smaller productions, and net 30 with larger, multi-week productions.
