Video Production Workflow

What is a typical video production workflow?

A typical corporate video workflow involves several stages from initial planning to final delivery. The specific steps may vary depending on the project and organisation, but here is a general outline of a corporate video workflow:     



Video pre-production is the initial phase of the video production process,  where the groundwork is laid for the successful execution of the project. It involves planning, organisation, and preparation before the actual filming or production takes place. Pre-production sets the foundation for a smooth production process and helps ensure that the final video aligns with the intended goals and vision.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

  1.  Concept Development: During pre-production, the creative concept and ideas for the video are developed. This includes brainstorming, and identifying the video's purpose, target audience, key messages, and desired outcomes. The concept development phase helps define the video's tone, style, and overall direction.                                                                                      

  2. Scriptwriting: Pre-production involves writing the script for the video. The script outlines the dialogues, narration, and overall structure of the video. It serves as a blueprint for the filming process and ensures that the key messages are communicated effectively.                                       

  3. Storyboarding: Storyboarding involves creating a visual representation of the video. It includes sketching or creating illustrations that represent each shot or scene in sequence. Storyboarding helps visualise the flow of the video, plan camera angles, compositions, and transitions, and provides a blueprint for the production team.                                                                           

  4. Location Scouting: Depending on the video's requirements, pre-production involves identifying and selecting suitable filming locations. Location scouting involves visiting potential sites, assessing their suitability, considering logistics and permits, and ensuring they align with the video's vision and requirements.                                                                                                                 

  5. Budgeting and Scheduling: During pre-production, a budget is established to outline the estimated costs associated with the production, including equipment rental, crew expenses, talent fees, and post-production. Scheduling involves creating a timeline and allocating time frames for each stage of production, ensuring efficient use of resources.                                              

  6. Casting and Talent Selection: If the video requires actors, presenters, or spokespersons, pre-production involves identifying and casting suitable individuals. This may involve auditions, talent agencies, or internal talent selection processes.                                                                               

  7. Crew and Equipment Planning: Pre-production includes assembling the necessary crew members, such as directors, cinematographers, producers, and production assistants. Equipment requirements are determined, including cameras, lighting, sound, and other technical gear. Planning ensures that the right team and equipment are available for the production phase.     

  8. Permits and Legal Considerations: Pre-production involves addressing any legal requirements or permits necessary for filming, such as location permits, releases for talent or copyrighted materials, and compliance with any applicable laws or regulations.                                                                     By focusing on these pre-production activities, the video production team can establish a solid foundation, align the creative vision with the objectives, and effectively plan for the filming and post-production phases of the project.
