There are a number of approaches to Pre Production, and here is my recommendation for the main paperwork you should use.

Before we start – here is Jisc Digital’s advice on planning a video production. Although it is aimed at teachers who can’t make videos, it still has some excellent advice.

The best thing to do is to collect the paperwork you feel most comfortable with. here I have presented the ones I like, in a logical order – thanks to Jessie. If you make a model now, you will find it easier to plan later.

A collection of forms from Dependant FIlms – have a look at these examples of paperwork.

Production Check list – you may need to adapt this to what you need, the purpose is ti make sure you have thought of everything.

Contracts & Contacts are possible the most important thing to include –

Product Release Form – Licensing for any products being used
