Prepare a Shooting Script

05/01/2013 - 06/01/2013

A shooting script is essentially a script that breaks the film into scenes, placed in sequence as they are to be filmed on set/location. Nicole Washington will assist with this and the Director.

Organize a Schedule

05/15/2013 - 06/01/2013

We will need to make countless calls and send countless E-mails to make sure all our cast and crew are available on the days we want to shoot. If one person can’t make it, we will need to re-organise the whole day again. So hopefully the cast we choose has an open schedule during the shooting process.
