Pre-Production: The Filmmaking Process

Pre-production is the process of planning and completing every task that has to be done before filming begins. Depending on the type of project, there could be different steps that may need to be completed.

This is where we discuss the company and what they want the tone of their commercial/video to be. Knowing their competition and customers can also be helpful with the next steps.

Some Pre-Production tasks include:
