“Starting, launching and having a vision for where you want to end up is easy. The challenge is how you are going to get there.” -Erin Strawser
Pre-production is the bridge that takes us from dream world to reality but, if we do our jobs right you’ll never know we even left the land of make-believe. At Northwoods, we break down our productions the same way a chemist would isolate the different ingredients of a compound. Boiling a video production over a consistent heat allows us to isolate different layers as they all transition from their solid to liquid to gas stages at different temperatures. We might be getting too complicated here…these are the main focus points in our pre-production:
Budget | Scheduling | Script | Shot Lists and Storyboards | Overheads | Casting and Crew Call | Production Design | All of That Fun Legal Stuff
We wrap up our pre-production with a concrete pre-pro book. Our pre-pro books contain every detail of production and post-production. There is no better feeling than knowing that every ‘i’ has been dotted and every ’t’ has been crossed. We understand that your time and money are a huge investment and we feel that it is our job to deliver your production with 100% certainty.
