Once the crew positions are assigned, Walter shows how that information makes it easy to plan for the necessary equipment needed for the project, including post-production. He also shows the importance of looking beyond the basic requirements and thinking about any "extras" or "stuff" beyond the standard equipment that might be required for the project.
- Having crew positions assigned…makes it easier for us to plan for…the necessary equipment needed for the project.…Additionally, we want to think about any other stuff…we're going to need for sets,…for the on camera talent, and so on.…Oh and don't forget about post-production.…Now, pre-production.…Often overlooked,…the pre-production process may require the use…of some equipment or other items…that need to be accounted for.…For instance, I've taken cameras to site surveys.…
I've even rented equipment for a day of testing…to see if I needed it for the project.…If you need something in pre-production,…you'll want that in the budget.…Now production equipment.…Looking at your production crew assignments,…you can plan out all the necessary equipment…to create your working concept.…Now you may not know the exact model of each item,…but you should at least know the general type…of equipment so you can plan for the cost in the budget.…For Water Science with Wade…to have that Bill Nye/Alton Brown look,…we would want the camera to get in close…
