Method of Working (part 18)

Planning on paper vs. Planning with camera 

Planning is one of the key elements towards creating a successful scene. The pre-production stage has to be completed before any filming takes place. Throughout this semester we have had a range of exercises that contained little planning to ones that had a significant amount of planning. From experiencing both ends of the scale, I am someone who works better when I know everything that will be happening, and what everyone will be doing. When I directed my scenes I preferred planning on paper, writing everything down; and then planning with the camera. This allows everyone involved with the production to know what they are doing, when they are doing it, and how they are doing it. This, to me, is an important stage, and for the rest of the semester I will be executing this.
