I love it when a plan comes together!

Colonel John “Hannibal” Smith, A-Team.

Before any commercial shoot, be it film, aerial or photography, you MUST have a plan, you really must.

Without a plan, expect delays, missed shots, wasted time and possibly some tears. Without a plan, you may end up having to pay more to fix this too.

What is a plan?

When it comes to filming or photography, your plan can be something as simple as a hand written list of shots you MUST have as well as some GOOD TO HAVE backup shots. The shot gets taken, then scored off the list, this way, we don’t miss anything vital and it allows you to stay on track.

The more complex the shoot, often the more complex the plan. The handwritten scribbled note becomes a printed list or better still becomes a storyboard.

A storyboard you say?

When planning a film shoot, it’s better to have something that visually represents the concept, there can be a narrative attached to a photo or hand drawn idea – something to give direction to the camera operator. This method allows filming and editing to be streamlined and the end result is a visualisation realised, a film which meets the needs and requirements of the client. Do that and you not only have a brilliant end product, but you have a happy client.
