“If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail.”

Just because you have your scripts written, does not mean you’re ready to set up your camera, microphones and lights to begin shooting your course videos. 

There are still so many things to plan and prepare before your shoot day, such as:

  • Completing your final drafts of all your scripts
  • Making sure your instructions and CTA’s (Call to Actions) are crystal clear for each video
  • Reading every single one of them out loud (in front of someone) to make sure you love them
  • Storyboarding each video
  • Making a shot list for each video
  • Deciding on your backgrounds, environment or shooting locations for each video
  • Choosing props (if you need them) to help make “your world” more believable and dynamic
  • Choosing what you wear in each video
  • Enrolling others to help you with your video production days (play characters, work the camera, hold teleprompter, etc.)
  • Rehearse with a teleprompter
  • Test out all of your gear to make sure it gives you the quality you want (if it doesn’t, renting is cheap)
  • etc…

If you do your due dllligence in pre-production, then you will make for seamless, fun production days and ease and simplicity in post production. Trust us, this was a hard hard HARD lesson we learned in our early stages of building the Great eCourse Adventure.
