The production stages required to produce a video may vary a little from video to video... 

It will depending on the style and content of the video being made and the amount of time, effort and money that is being put into production but… However large or small your video may be… This is the proven production process that successful video producers use…

It works out into three main phases…

The Pre-Production Phase…

All that has to be planned for and brought together to produce the video.

Without a good plan and organization the production of the video can become a grind! Make sure that you have a very good idea of what it takes as far as structure of the video, time needed for production, equipment and personnel before you start making your video.

Having a good "vision" of what it will take will save you a lot of time, money and aggravation I assure you! 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!
