• Digital Director's Rough guide to making a scripted video.

    Get an idea of what locations can be used. Find out where people live and work and what they've got access to. A great location can usually be worked into the script and adds appreciably to the impact on the audience. Whenever you're out and about be your own location scout, making notes whenever you see an unusual or impressive building, street or anything which is visually exciting. That pocket book’s filling up and going to be a valuable reference tool. At this point consider your second-in-command, a Production Manager, who will help you with getting everything ready for the shoot, remind you what still needs to be done, push you when you’re flagging and be your lifesaver on location. If you're directing the video as well then a P.M. is absolutely essential.Theoretically the choice of cameraman is easy, he who owns the camera, uses it, simple! This may well be the approach some clubs offer but it's not necessarily the best way to get a video made.

    On the majority of professional productions there's a Director of Photography who rarely operates the camera. That's the job of the camera operator, makes sense really. The D.o.P. thinks, the operator sets it up and the result is usually better than one person working on their own. This system is great for getting younger members of the team more involved than just fetching and carrying. Don't be sexist here. There's nothing in the male genes which makes cameramen better than camerawomen, in fact the opposite is often the case, so push for flexibility in the choice of D.o.P. and operator!
