Join Nick Brazzi for an in-depth discussion in this video Exercise files, part of Managing a Video Production with an iPad (2014).
If you're a premium member of lynda.com, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. I've got the exercise files here on my desktop. And if I open them up, you can see, I've just got some files that you can play around with throughout the course. We'll start with scripts, and we'll create shot lists, and we'll play around with storyboards. And as I go through these projects, I'll refer you to the appropriate files. However, there's one thing to keep in mind if you plan to skip ahead in this course. Early in the course, in chapter one, there's a movie about setting up Google Drive and Dropbox for online storage, which I can access on my iPad.
You may see movies later in this course where I'm accessing files directly from Google Drive or Dropbox, like this. These files are only here because I've moved them here throughout the course. I definitely recommend you check out the movie on setting up your file system with Google Drive and Dropbox, but if you need the original files that I'm working with, in general, they should be in the exercise files. If you are not a premium subscriber to lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along from scratch with your own assets.
Let's get started.
With a handful of inexpensive apps and services that work with the iPad, you can create a very effective production toolkit. This course reveals the workflow that author and lynda.com content producer Nick Brazzi uses to plan and run shoots for low-budget productions and "no-budget" web series using iPad apps, cloud-based services, and optional desktop software. Find out how Google Drive, Dropbox, and specialty apps like Shot Lister, MovieSlate, Teleprompt+, and Easy Release can help you run a tighter ship and bring your production in on schedule and under budget.
