  • The video's concept
  • Script
  • Storyboard

And even if it's a small-time production... the kids birthday party for instance… It's always a good idea to work it out a little bit ahead of time (even if it's just in your head) where you want to set up, what kind of shots do you want to take and what do you want to include in the video so that you are sure to capture all the special events of the day that will turn into great memories in the future!
