Chapter Two. Yes, You Need a Script > Thinking About Your Project

Thinking About Your Project

As you begin to write a script or outline for your project, it's the perfect time to start thinking about all the elements of your production—budget, schedule, equipment, crew, and how you plan to tell your story. If you're a professional moving into digital video, much of this section will be familiar. Even so, it's good to be reminded to think ahead, particularly about your intended distribution method.

Thinking Ahead to Distribution

Before you become immersed in the details of the production process, consider how you intend your work to be exhibited. In effect, you must put your mind into the future and imagine who is viewing your show and where, then work backward to determine all the steps it took to get there. Each of those steps will have its particular requirements in terms of cost, time, technical issues, and quality.
