What is the film pre-production?

Updated: Jan 9, 2019


Pre-Production Stage= Planning

The night before the shoot might make you feel nervous but it shouldn't. Before we hit record, there is a lot of thought that goes into making a movie. In the wise words of Cinema Database “Plan better, shoot better.”


What happens in the Pre-Production Stage?

When we are in the production stage, we are referring to everything that happens before the shoot.


This includes the development of the story or idea, the staging, continuity, the principle of photography and many other elements. We create a production bible as is the reference to keep us on track and bring it on set. A Production bible also makes sure that we are all on the same page.
