COMMERCIAL TELEVISION / VIDEO
THE FIVE STAGES OF PRODUCTION:

The five stages of production for this service will be completed by DVI.

  1. Pre-Production: (Planning)
    Preparing a cover letter and request to be filled out by client interested in pursuing a video program. Creation of script, storyboard, rental agreement of all equipment, coordinating crew, tape, laser print labels, hard shell cases, on location scouting and all other pre-production planning.
  2. Production:  (Shooting)
    Set up of all production equipment two (2-3) hours prior to event start time. Test all equipment as per plan of show. Videotape the event in real time (as it occurs). Two separate camera video sources will be used to switch from. One source will the main camera.  The second camera will be the reaction camera.  The switching unit will also be located nearby to direct the camera operator’s where/what to shoot.  Audio feeds will be from lapel microphones on the talent themselves. If this is not possible, shotgun and alternate directional microphone systems will be places near to receive a good “sound” source. Lights will be strategically placed around the talent to create three point (three dimensional) lighting, to create the best possible lighting set up.  Crew will communicate with wireless intercom systems, I will switch and direct event as it occurs. Break down of all equipment will take approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours. We will need clearance to stay later to pack up.
  3. Post-Production:  (Editing)
    The master footage (raw stock) will be edited together with some animation and many computer graphics representing all the agreed upon information from the storyboard and script.
  4. Duplication:  (Copies)
    This edited master represents the finished final product of the show. From this Sub-Master, all duplications created.
    * All duplications are made during this process.
  5. Distribution:  (Delivery)
    All tapes will be appropriately labeled and boxed in a hard shell case. Upon completion of this stage, all tapes will be delivered via UPS ground or air by a predetermined date and time.

CONCLUSION:
This complete process from scripting the show to finally delivering the tapes and distributing them, can be handled through Premium Studios.   I will produce the complete program from start to finish. With Premium Studios coordinating with your show this will be a great experience for all.
