The order of the shoot

  • Load the memory card and battery, and set up the camera on the tripod for the first shot.
  • Check for background sound and test the sound levels by asking the actors to say some lines.
  • Make sure your lighting is good and you can clearly see everyone and everything in the viewfinder.
  • Focus the camera on the first shot.
  • Ask the actors to play out the scene and rehearse a few times.
  • Record a couple of takes and make sure you are happy with the shot.
