The Production Process: Production

In the production process, you will follow four standard stages in the actual shooting of an electronic fi eld production (EFP): setting up, rehearsing, shooting, and striking.

First, unload the equipment and move it to the fi rst shooting location. A word about security: Professional video equipment is expensive and looks attractive to thieves. You must never leave equipment unguarded, and never leave the production vehicle unlocked. You and the crew move the equipment from the vehicle effi ciently to the fi rst camera setup, unless you use the vehicle as a fi eld control room.
