Before the day of production, it is crucial to have any information you need to get to your cast in crew given to them. This can be anything from wardrobe to how much of the budget your director of photography can play with to how to get to the location. In this movie, author Richard Harrington and guest Rachel Longman discuss the importance of bundling up paperwork for your cast, crew and even your client.
- A plan is only good if it's communicated.…So having a great plan that the producer…and the director and the client knows about isn't enough.…You need to get it to the rest of the crew.…What are some of the things that you share with them?…You probably don't need to give them the line item budget,…for example, but they might want the script.…- Yeah, want to include things…like the Call Sheet and the schedule,…I usually combine them all in the same document.…The location, maybe there are certain parking restrictions…that they need to know ahead of time.…There's also things for your talent…like wardrobe requirements.…
Maybe you're having them bring certain things themselves,…and then, there's also things like the script, of course.…The talent's gonna know what to say.…- And giving people a map to the location…or even directions.…Think of it this way.…A lot of times, your crew will have finished…a project the night before.…Maybe they were on somebody else's shoot…who wasn't nearly as organized as you are…because they never watched this course,…
