Richard Harrington offers free slides from his Get Organized Before You Edit talk from NAB 2014.

If you missed Richard Harrington and Amy DeLouise’s NAB 2014 presentation on ‘getting organized before you edit’ you’re in good company. With hundreds of talks and presentations at NAB it can be impossible to catch all the ones you want. Thankfully Richard has shared the slides from his NAB presentation…

It is insanely important to be organized when leading up to the editing process. In fact, many on-set frustrations come from a lack of good preproduction and organization. The slides help shed light on a few actionable techniques and tips you can use to make your productions run smoother:

  • Release Forms
  • Site Surveys
  • Electronic Scripts
  • Slates
  • Logging
  • Room Tone

These slides were first shared in Richard Harrington’s blog. Thanks for sharing Richard.

Storyboarding and Scheduling

In line with Richard’s talk, this video from our friends over at Film Riot explains a few really good techniques for pre-production. The video covers storyboarding and scheduling (and may or may not include wrestling!) Enjoy.
