You head to your desk, open Trello to find today's video project is a Pro Tips video on How to Shot List a Video. It takes you back to your old production days. You think how useful this video would have been when you were just starting out.
You start concepting new ideas around this topic and how to incorporate StudioBinder's product in creative ways.
You call a meeting with the directors and pitch your concept. You collaborate and refine the ideas. One is selected.
You get back to your desk, fill out a treatment, and start pre-production. You create a budget for approval, gather your team, make your shot list, and prep for a shoot in a day or so.
This particular project will be handed off to a video editor, so you can focus on shooting and directing.
