5 Tips to Streamline Your Next Production: 3) Preparing to Shoot

As we delve into our series on streamlining your production workflows, we focus on pre-shoot organisation. Careful planning and infrastructure assessment are crucial here for a seamless shooting experience. And getting your tech setup right is key. From network capabilities to bandwidth allocation, WiFi coverage, and communication systems, each component facilitates efficient collaboration and productivity on set.

The Challenge

You are also not a static organisation. Plans and schedules change – and more so now than ever. You may take a stage or building early or move the entire production forward or back. Your team of 2-3 may ramp up to 300 at the peak of shooting and then as you near a wrap, you’re back to just a skeleton crew again. Having solutions that are flexible and that grow and shrink as quickly as your production does is key. 

The Fix
