Pitch the idea of short and the reason why I chose this topic. Revise the weight loss section of my full length documentary: DAMIANism. Make sure the short in impactful in the time allotted.
Give a breakdown of every aspect of the documentary, submit the script and give a contract of these promises so I can be held accountable for everything I state.
I need to come to final decision of every location I want to shoot at and some alternative locations for "just in case" situations. Once script has been looked over & the location are finalized I need to start storyboard shots for documentary. I need to gather photos of my journey of weight loss.
With a finalized script is done, submit a copy to each doctor that i want in the short and the questions I want to ask them, so they can get approval from the superiors. I would also need to start shooting my B-Roll and establishing shots. Shoot more than I need to make post productions smoother.
Spend up to 3 days away from the world and shoot my personal interviews for the short, footage of myself at every location I want to show, any voice overs and recording cut aways of myself to exercising.
Spend two weeks shooting footage of friends, family and doctors interviews of their feeling of my progression during the weight loss process. If I cannot get the doctor's on film, see if I can get a photo of them and a written interview to show during the film.
Select music that would fit the short. Once a footage is done, spend time breaking it down to have a presentable short. Have a peer and one unbiased person watch it and give their honest opinion and tweak whatever needs to be tweaked. Once I am satisfied with the final product. Review the video and make a 30 seconds trailer/commercial of it.
Do any last minute touch ups needed before presenting. After presentation of video, add it to personal website. Then start working on Full Length Documentary.
